Philippines: The killing of Gary Dalayhon
Gary Dalayhon, a 16 year old street child, died after he was shot, after being picked up and questioned by three members of the Philippine National Police on 23 July 1993. The government has so far failed to conduct a thorough investigation into the killing despite strong evidence pointing to the identities of the three policemen involved. AI is concerned that the case, having already taken two years, could take yet more years to be resolved. In the meantime, those responsible for Dalayhon's death remain free and there is concern for the safety of witnesses.
