Statement of Sen. Francis Pangilinan on the killing of human rights lawyer Ben Ramos
Justice for Sagay Massacre lawyer Ben Ramos: Kiko

It's appalling when even those who defend the poor and voiceless become victim themselves of the lawlessness under the Duterte administration.

We could not help but link his death to his work as human rights lawyer and his involvement in the case of the Sagay Massacre.

The minority senators have recently filed a resolution to investigate the killing of the nine farmers. In the hearings, we will certainly look into the death of lawyer Ben Ramos.

We also exhort the authorities, particularly the NBI, to thoroughly look into this incident and produce results. We will not allow impunity to reign by letting the perpetrators go unpunished. The killers and their masters should be brought before the bar of justice.
