    Don’t add insult to injury, no to house arrest for GMA —Karapatan

    Press Statement – “In the name of justice, GMA should end up in a detention facility and not under house arrest,” asserted Jigs Clamor, deputy secretary general of human rights group Karapatan.“ Clamor added that, “GMA should not be accorded special treatment. Instead, she must account for all the human rights violations committed under her regime.”

    In GMA’s nine years in power, Karapatan has documented the following violations and the corresponding number of victims of her Oplan Bantay Laya:

     

    Extrajudicial, summary and arbitrary execution

    1,206

    Frustrated Killing

    379

    Enforced or involuntary disappearance

     206

    Torture

     1,099

    Illegal arrest

     2,059

    Physical assault and injuries

    30,119

    Threat, harassment and intimidation

     81,835

    Indiscriminate firing

    538,017

    Illegal search and seizure

    53,893

    Forcible evacuation and displacement

     873,787

    Hamletting

    Food and other economic blockade:

     87,152

    Use of schools, medical, religious and other public places for military purposes

    57,914

    “The victims of GMA as commander-in-chief of the AFP are real people. They are not just numbers. Justice should be served to those who were wronged. Enough of lies, enough of tricks. The families of the victims have suffered for so long. GMA must end up in jail. That’s the least the P-Noy administration can do,” said Clamor. ###
