The Commission on Human Rights welcomes the decision of the Antipolo Regional Trial Court Branch 97 in convicting members of the Reform the Armed Forces Movement (RAM) for the death of labor leader Rolando “Ka Lando” Olalia and unionist Leonor Alay-ay.
Though justice may have appeared to have been long-winded and at times elusive, their conviction is nonetheless a welcome action from the Philippine justice system in exacting accountability for the cruel crimes perpetrated.
We hope that in the coming days, the remaining accused members of RAM will be brought to account.###
