BY SHIELA GELERA
ESCALANTE CITY - Fr. Robert Reyes, the running priest, led the run against extra-judicial killings here, at about 6:30 a.m. yesterday, in commemoration of the 65 th International Human Rights Day.
About 100 participants composed of families of victims of extra-judicial killings, members of the Partido Lakas ng Masa, with their national secretary general, Leody de Guzman, and other activist parties in Bacolod City, joined the run that started at the boundary of Escalante.
It ended with a program in front of the Escalante City Hall where 28 alleged extra-judicial killings have happened since 2007, during the incumbency of Mayor Melecio Yap.
