Akbayan Partylist Chairperson Emeritus Etta Rosales commended the Supreme Court decision ordering the government to release all Oplan Tokhang police reports.
"Making police data available to the petitioners is a huge step in exacting accountability from the perpetrators of the crime through the release of facts and figures related to the commission of the crime," Etta Rosales said. "We will need this data to probe the police's claims that protocols were observed, especially when multiple reports from survivors indicate otherwise."
"For the first time, victims of the drug war and human rights groups will know crucial details on these deadly police operations. They will be receiving the names of the police officers in those operations, operation plans and investigative reports. These are important and relevant information needed to probe deeper into investigation where no stone is left unturned," the former Commission on Human Rights chairperson said.
