Reports show that cases of political killings are routinely delayed at all stages of investigation and prosecution. Nelson Asucena was Chair of The Youth Council in his local village government. On 13 December 2006, six armed men in camouflage uniforms shot him dead outside his home. This case card calls on the Ombudsman to expedite the Nelson Asucena case and all other pending cases of political killings and enforced disappearances.
