HRN Fact-finding team in the Philippines, April 2007

Human Rights Now conducted an investigation of extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances in the Philippines on April 14th- 22nd 2007. As a friend and fellow Asian constituency, Japanese civil society is very concerned about the fact that a substantial number of Filipinos have been targeted in extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances. 

Human Rights Now held a press conference in the Philippines on 21st April 2007, and recommended the Philippine government to stop killing as well as the Japanese government  to its aids for the Philippines government until the end of the systematic killings. Human Rights Now published a press release at the conference.
