The Bangsamoro Human Rights Commission condemns the unlawful killing of the former Lamitan City Mayor.

Former Mayor Rose Furigay was a staunch women’s rights advocate and an active partner of the Commission in the promotion and protection of human rights specifically in her home province of Basilan.

May we always be reminded of the adherence to the liberal morality of the rule of law.

We urge the security sector to follow through with an investigation with due consideration of the guarantees provided for by our constitution.
