The Commission on Human Rights (CHR) will be looking into the alleged human rights violation of the soldiers during the five-month-long siege in Marawi City.

In an interview with DZRH, Attorney Jacky De Guia, Spokesperson of the CHR, said that they are obliged to investigate the reported incident after the Integrated Bar of the Philippines and the group Karapatan filed their complaints.

Atty. Guia added that the nearly ending conflict in the city will help speed up the investigation in verifying the complaints.

The Armed Forces of the Philippines has cornered the remaining 30 Maute members, including some Indonesians and Malaysians, in a single building in the main battle area.

Meanwhile, several Marawi soldiers were already sent back home to their families after bravely fighting the terrorist extremist.

President Rodrigo Duterte reiterated that he is determined to give those who fought to liberate Marawi the due recreation treatment they deserve by funding their trip to Hong Kong.
