BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA

Former chief justice Maria Lourdes Sereno said the policemen involved in the raids in Negros Oriental that killed 14 people should prove that those were legitimate operations.

“The affidavit said the families were dragged out of their houses while the victims fought back against the police. If the victims’ families are telling the truth, the state forces must show proof that their operations were legitimate,” she said.

Sereno, who was in Bacolod City yesterday, said state forces should surrender those documents because the relatives of the victims claimed there were irregularities during the operations. moremoremore
