Human rights raps filed against 24 cops

CHR: Policemen turned Parañaque into war zone

MANILA, Philippines – Lilian De Vera, widow of one of the victims, left home in Pangasinan at 4 a.m. Monday for the three-hour trip to Manila to listen to the announcement by the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) of its findings at a press conference.
