(Eagle News)–Interior undersecretary and spokesperson Jonathan Malaya on Tuesday, Sept. 24, expressed surprise over the “rubbish” tag given to the reports on the drug war submitted by the Office of the Solicitor General and the Philippine National Police.
The tag was given by the Center for International Law in its manifestation and motion asking the Supreme Court to cite the PNP and the OSG in contempt.
The submission of the documents was in compliance with an April SC ruling that required such submission to parties assailing the government’s war on drugs, including CenterLaw.
CenterLaw argued many of the reports submitted were not even drug- related.
In an interview over ANC, Malaya, who worked as chief of staff in the OSG, noted that the office was composed of “very meticulous lawyers.”
Malaya noted that CenterLaw and other organizations have their own agenda against the government.
“They have been criticizing the drug war for a very long time,” he added.
