UK parliamentarians today attended a webinar event to hear from parliamentarians in the Philippines about how they are tagged as terrorists or are arrested on false criminal charges in order to silence them. Senator Leila de Lima just passed the fourth anniversary of her imprisonment on false charges. Fhilip Sawali head of Senator De Lima’s office said that counter-terrorism in the Philippines is used as a cover to suppress legitimate opposition and massive human rights abuses. He said no foreign government should support Duterte’s campaign of terror disguised as “counter-terrorism”.
