MANILA - International experts on Thursday renewed calls for an independent probe of the rights situation in the Philippines, nearly a year after the UN rights body adopted a resolution seeking a comp

rehensive report on the country's alleged abuses.

"The report recognizes important efforts to improve the protection of economic and social rights and stresses that these efforts should be guided by a human rights-based approach and focused on 'leaving no one behind'. The reports also finds, as we had, stark and persistent impunity,” they said in a statement Thursday.

The experts said that the coronavirus pandemic has "further accelerated the downward spiral of the human rights situation" in the country. “In response to the protests of poor Filipinos demanding food aid amid the COVID-19 lockdown, President Duterte reportedly authorized police and security forces to kill protesters saying: ‘Do you understand? Dead. Instead of causing trouble, I’ll send you to the grave,’” they noted.

“Thousands in the Philippines have been killed as the direct result of government policies. Domestic mechanisms responsible for ensuring accountability and protecting the rule of law have failed to do so,” they said.
