Activists today filed criminal complaints against policemen involved in the violent dispersal of a rally on July 23 when President Benigno Aquino delivered his state of the nation address. The National Union of Peoples’ Lawyers (NUPL) assisted 84 injured activists in filing criminal complaints before the Office of the Ombudsman against members of the National Police. “This should not only be a precedent but also a deterrent to the old, bad, predictable and even comical practice of the police and other law enforcement units of impeding, obstructing and disrupting an evidently legitimate and legal assembly,” said lawyer Carlos Montemayor of NUPL.
