The "Philippine Drug War", or "War on Drugs", refers to the drug policy of the Philippine government under President Rodrigo Duterte, who assumed office on June 30, 2016. According to Philippine National Police Chief Ronald dela Rosa, the policy is aimed at "the neutralization [ie., killing] of illegal drug personalities nationwide". Duterte has urged members of the public to kill suspected criminals and drug addicts. Research by media organizations and human rights groups has shown that police routinely execute unarmed drug suspects and then plant guns and drugs as evidence. Philippine authorities have denied misconduct by police.
