However, Trillanes said he is not surprised as Duterte has turned Davao City into the “murder capital of the Philippines” when he was mayor.


“For someone who promised to restore peace and order in our country during the campaign, it is ironic for a lot of people that Duterte has actually turned the Philippines into the murder capital of Asia,” he said in a statement Tuesday (July 3).




“Duterte’s culture of violence is upon us. No one is safe now. Regardless, whether Mayor Halili is involved in the illegal drug trade, nothing justifies this murder,” he said further.


Senator Kiko Pangilinan, also from the opposition, had linked Halili’s death to the drug war and called it another case of “extrajudicial killing.”


Halili, famous for conducting a “walk of shame” of suspected drug personalities, was gunned down Monday morning during a flag ceremony at the city hall.


However, Duterte, in a speech last night in Leyte, said this is a mere front of the mayor, who he claimed to be involved in the illegal drug trade – contrary to an earlier statement of MalacaƱang that Halili is an ally in the government’s war against drugs.


Trillanes called on the Philippine National Police to “follow only legal orders from their superiors” and urged the Crime Investigation and Detection Group and the National Bureau of Investigation to “leave no stone unturned” in the slain mayor’s case.
