Philippines: Ensure justice for ‘Bloody Sunday’ killings and other attacks against activists

Amnesty International is deeply concerned at the decision of the Department of Justice to dismiss the murder complaint against over a dozen officers of the Philippine National Police who were accused of the killing of labour rights activist Emmanuel “Manny” Asuncion.
