MANILA – The survey results showing fewer victims of common crimes in the last six months only shows that the Duterte administration’s war on drugs “is working effectively,” Malacañang said. The SWS survey showed that 5.6 percent or 1.4 million Filipino families reported being victimized by common crimes in the past six months. “The survey was a clear repudiation of the disinformation being peddled by the opposition against the government’s fight against crimes and drugs,” the Palace spokesperson claimed. The latest figure is lower than the 7 percent or 1.7 million families who were victimized by any common crimes in June.center_img “The September crime victimization survey validates government data that the campaign against illegal drugs and criminality, a centerpiece program of the Administration, is working effectively and efficiently with the results being significant, palpable, and meaningful,” Panelo said.
