Napakatinding Rebalasyon! Higit sa 30 Journalist Ang Napatay Under Noynoy Administration


More than thirty journalists have been killed extrajudicially during the term of Benigno Simeon Aquino III.

Former National Press Club President Paul Gutierrez said, “The culture of impunity that is behind these attacks is yet to be addressed by the authorities despite their repeated boasts and promises.”

New York City-based Committee to Protect Journalists senior Southeast Asia representativeShawn Crispin said, “The Philippines will remain one of the world’s most dangerous places to be a journalist until President Aquino’s government shows stronger resolve in prosecuting cases like Lim’s and breaking the cycle of impunity in all media murders,” .

International press freedom and press welfare watchdogs criticized Aquino for his failure to protect journalists and catch their killers.
