The findings of the delegation’s visit to the Philippines were originally set forth in Seeking Answers: Probing Political Persecution, Repression & Human Rights Violations in the Philippines, published in September 2006. Since that time, the authors have continued to monitor developments in the Philippines, and remain concerned about the rising number of extrajudicial killings and increased threats to democracy.
Despite having been “blacklisted” from the Philippines as a consequence of publishing their original report, the authors remain committed to increasing public awareness of the human rights crisis in the Philippines. In this Special Update, the authors have provided information on recent developments in the Philippines and re-affirm their conclusions and recommendations. A link to the original report and the update can be found in the Philippines Subcommittee homepage or here
