Karapatan: Martial law extension will result to more violations

“With martial law still in full effect in Mindanao.  The human rights situation has already worsened due to the continuing implementation of Duterte’s counterinsurgency program Oplan Kapayapaan, but this is all the more compounded by Duterte’s termination of the GRP peace talks with the National Democratic Front of the Philippines.

With the extension of martial law in Mindanao and, possibly, to expand the coverage nationwide, the situation is set to become much more urgent and dangerous,” said Karapatan secretary general Cristina Palabay.

Palabay said that “the Duterte regime seem to be concocting more and more maneuvers to further curtail people’s rights. From the use of the Human Security Act of 2007, the formation of the Inter-Agency Committee on Legal Action, the threats to crackdown on progressive groups, Duterte is hell-bent on finding ways to usurp power.” (karapatan)
