SANLAKAS STATEMENT ON SONYA AND FRANK GREGORIO’S MURDER
Sanlakas vehemently condemns the brutal and brazen execution of Sonya Gregorio and Frank Anthony Gregorio. This was not an isolated incident as their deaths add to the growing number of casualties whose deaths have been perpetrated by the police. The police has been emboldened by President Duterte’s marching shoot-to-kill orders against citizens on the pretext of fighting crime. This recent display of barbarism and callousness highlight the danger the public faces in the hands of the police.
Police brutality no longer hides in the cloak of darkness as impunity takes on new heights.
To date, criminal prosecution of erring police officers remains slow while crimes committed by the police continue to rise. This in itself is injustice.
There can be no justice if no less the President is quick to give scalawags in uniform a free pass.
We demand that Duterte condemn and give full justice to not just the merciless killings of the Gregorios but all murders that have been committed as a result of the bloodlust that is the war on drugs being waged in the last 4 years, and the attack on activists, workers, peasants, journalists, lawyers, and IPs.
Stop the killings NOW!
