Flag petition

Lawyers from the Free Legal Assistance Group Jose Manuel Diokno (left) and Felix Mariñas show copies of the petitions they filed before the Supreme Court seeking the declaration of government’s war on drugs as unconstitutional.  FLAG lawyers believe that the campaign against illegal drugs has resulted in the rise of number of extrajudicial killings involving police operations on illegal drugs.   They are asking the judicial body of government to declare it illegal and unconstitutional since President Rodrigo Duterte had never issued any written order for the police to wage a brutal campaign on narcotics.
