The Philippines

Espanol

As peace talks between the government and the communist opposition stalls, human rights violations continue in the Philippines. There are over a hundred political prisoners in jail, and detainees continue to be tortured and misstreated during interrogations. The security forces have been responsible for a number of forced "disappearances" and extra-judicial executions, while private security forces and unidentified armed men have responsible for the killings and harassment of civilians in the context of land disputes. Muslim armed opposition groups have also been responsible for kidnappings and arbitrary killings. Hundreds of people continue to be sentenced to death by the civilian courts.
