DESPITE the negative attention from international community, extrajudicial killings continue as another suspected snatcher was gunned down by alleged members of the so-called Deadly Death Squad (DDS) the other day in Pasay City.

Police identified the latest EJK victim as a certain Junjun, tagged as a notorious snatcher in the city.
   
The victim, clad in black T-shirt, green short pants and wearing a pair of slippers, suffered several bullet wounds in the body. His hands were tied with packaging tape.
   
Police said the victim was found at 2 a.m. in a dimly-lit portion of Tripa de Galina, Bgy. 46, Zone 6, Pasay City.
   
Barangay Chairman Zaldy Salazar told police that the victim, who looks familiar to him, was a former inmate and was included in their watchlist.
   
Police records shows more than 10 victims of extrajudicial killings for this month alone in Pasay City.
   
The same records also showed that last July, 23 persons suspected to be involved in illegal drugs were also victims of EJK or what policemen termed as death under inquiry while eight others were killed in police operations.
