The following report is based on the findings of an Amnesty International delegation which visited the Philippines from 11 November to 28 November 1981, a follow-up mission from the 1975 fact-finding mission. The report concludes: “(T)he Philippines Government has constantly affirmed its commitment to the rule of law and has introduced extensive measures intended to uphold principles for the protection of the rights of people in the custody of its agents.
