Statement of Senate President Pro-Tempore Ralph Recto on Speaker Alvarez's comments

Relax lang. Government says EJK is not state-sponsored--then it should not be afraid of providing more resources to CHR, the duly constituted office whose mandate is to protect human rights.

It cannot be denied that there are too many killings including children. I believe the president when he says he has not ordered it. But it is highly possible that there are rogue policemen abusing their authority. Let's strengthen all institutions of government, including the CHR.
