Governments recommend greater respect and guarantees for human rights in the Philippines
Croatia, along with other countries called for a linking of the rule of law to the economic agenda and to address the impunity with which extra-judicial killings are happening.
Denmark, Poland, Germany and Norway, among others, called for adequate protection for journalists and human rights defenders.
The recommendations made by various countries only indicate that impunity and the grave violations committed against the Filipino people remain unheeded. Thus, the necessity of addressing the issues and recommendations raised by these countries and in the submitted reports of people’s organizations and human rights advocates.
