Mindanao rights’ group denounces Supreme Court’s decision on Martial Law


Members of the Barug Katungod Mindanao trooped to the Supreme Court on Thursday as they slammed the highest court’s decision to uphold the declaration of Martial Law in Mindanao.

According to Ryan Amper, spokesman of the group, with the Supreme Court’s decision, the justices made it appear that they are allowing the harassment and bombing of Moros and lumads in the said region.

In line with this, the group wants President Rodrigo Duterte, as the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of the Philippines to be liable on the current fate of the people in Mindanao.

Meanwhile, from the Supreme Court, the group transferred to the building of the Department of Justice; this time, condemning the government agency for failing to provide justice to the indigenous Filipinos, farmers and human rights defenders who fell victim of harassment and extra judicial killings from the military.
