Some congressional leaders are calling for an investigation into a reported proliferation of drug syndicates at the national penitentiary during Senator Leila De Lima’s term as justice secretary rather than look into the increasing number of extrajudicial killings since the start of President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs.

In a press briefing on Monday, Deputy Speaker and Cebu Rep. Gwendolyn Garcia said there is no need for Congress to investigate extrajudicial killings if it is in aid of legislation.

According to the Inquirer’s Kill List, over 680 have been killed in Duterte’s war on drugs.
