Stop the killings! UP LSG issues statement against death of Ben Ramos
The UP Law Student Government is openly condemning the murder of Atty. Benjamin Ramos. The abogado is the 34th lawyer killed under President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration.
UP LSG seeks for accountability and an immediate halt to the violence committed against law professionals. They also stated that many are being harassed and threatened for opposing human rights violations similar to that of the pro bono cases and the controversial Sagay 9 case that Ramos is handling.
The abogado aspirants call members of the law community and human rights advocacy to join the mobilizations. They insisted on keeping with the struggle to uphold the rule of law even in the face of adversity and violence.
Justice for Atty. Ben!
