Roque expects guilty verdict in Maguindanao massacre case

Lawyer Harry Roque, former presidential spokesperson and co-founder of CenterLaw who represented some of the victims of the Maguindanao massacre, is optimistic that justice will finally be served.

On Monday, the Quezon City Regional Trial Court Branch 221 announced that the promulgation of the verdict on the case will be on Dec. 19—after 10 long years of trial.

“My take on the December 19 promulgation in the Maguindanao masaacre case: We expect that the victims will finally be accorded Justice!” said Roque on Twitter.

“Let this be the last time that victims have to wait for 10 years before the state can afford them an adequate if not speedy remedy,” he added.
