CHR notes increase
in rights violations
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
The Commission on Human Rights in Negros Oriental yesterday said that rights violations, allegedly involving policemen of the Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office, have been reported in Manjuyod and Valencia towns and Dumaguete City in the past three weeks.
CHR field investigator Jesus Cañete said he has required the cops to file their counter-affidavits.
He said a 54-year-old resident claimed he was maltreated by policemen who arrested him in Tagpo, Manjuyod on May 23, without presenting the alias warrant of arrest for a murder case in 1988.
