The Department of National Defense (DND) dared some groups and individuals to file a case and present evidences against soldiers for alleged human rights violations in Mindanao.
DND Sec. Delfin Lorenzana, said they should not fear if there is sufficient evidence against the soldiers who violated human rights, especially in Marawi City.
Sec. Lorenzana stressed that the government will not cover up soldiers ruining the good image and reputation of military invested from long years.
The Secretary insisted that the AFP deployed human rights officers and lawyers to watch the soldiers performing their duty under the implementing Martial Law in Mindanao Region.
