Nearly 8 out of 10 adult Filipinos are worried that they, or someone they know, would fall victim to extrajudicial killing amid the ongoing antidrug campaign of the Duterte administration, the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey showed.

A total of 78 percent of 1,500 respondents asked in the nationwide SWS survey expressed worry that they or someone they know would be killed.

The results of the study done from Dec. 3 to 6 first came out of BusinessWorld. It had a margin of error of + or – 3 percentage points.
