In a twist of turn of events, the militant KARAPATAN human rights group expresses concern and alarm over the safety of Special Investigator Jess Canete of the local office of the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) who earlier felt threathened by unidentified persons whom he suspected of following him around Dumaguete City.
———–Vimarie Arcilla, KARAPATAN’s public information officer said that their group understands Canete’s anxieties as the militant human rights group also have become targets of direct harassment and actual attacks in defense of human rights.
“Aside from text threats and overt surveillance, harassment charges have been lodged against us as part of neutralization efforts of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) in pursuit of its Oplan Bantay Laya” explained Arcilla in a separate statement.————————-http://www.negroschronicle.com/?p=3754
