The group is allegedly responsible for summary executions of street children and any individuals suspected of petty crimes and drug trafficking. The Davao Death Squad (DDS) is a punisher group supposedly active in the Philippines, Davao City.
Everyone believed that the Davao Death Squad (DDS) group is responsible for the killing and disappearance of people in 1998 – 2008. The Human Rights Commission (HRC) sent reports to the US State Department in 2005 about extrajudicial killings in Davao. In fact, they did another investigation in 2009. However, they discontinued the investigation due to the stonewalling of the local government under Duterte.
