THE United Nations Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner yesterday welcomed President Rodrigo Duterte’s order to stop the government’s campaign against illegal drugs.

Dr. Agnes Callamard, UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions twitted “a pause in the war on drugs is welcomed.”
   
She called on the government to investigate all deaths to determine those who are responsible for the loss of lives.
   
“It must include investigation of all unlawful death, accountability, reparation,” Callamard said.
