It took ten years to reach this point; a manifestation of the slow, inefficient process of our Justice System.
Court’s decision today on ‘Ampatuan Massacre’, however, gives us hope that justice is not entirely elusive. Even those who cling to power cannot evade justice.
Justice will only be truly served when our journalists and other members of the press can continue to tell the truth without fearing for their lives. There is more that needs to be done.
