The IBP said that the attack made against Cabatbat is a fear mongering mechanism that seeks to undermine the whole abogado community. While this culture of impunity and violence is not new, the IBP stands with Cabatbat in seeking justice for the said incident.

The IBP continues to call for the full cooperation of the National Bureau of Investigation, Philippine National Police and other government agencies in defeating these acts of intimidation against lawyers. It is through this that their wish of creating an environment where abogados can freely advocate for their client’s causes can become an actual reality.

Use your words, not guns!
