Senator Risa wants senate inquiry on killing of 4 soldiers by cops


“I filed a resolution calling for an investigation of the killing of four soldiers of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) by personnel of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in Jolo, Sulu,” Senator Risa Hontiveros said June 2.

She said that the proposed Senate Resolution No. 460 aims to institutionalize measures against the excessive use of force and violence within the police force.

“After the killing of 4 AFP soldiers by personnel of the PNP in Jolo, Sulu, it is clear that we need to reform our law enforcement systems. Dapat maintindihan ng kapulisan na ang mga pagpatay na ito ay nakakadagdag lang ng takot sa mga tao, at mas lalong nakakabawas ng tiwala,” the senator added.
