Hontiveros on martial law: ‘Walang ‘moving-on’ kung walang paghilom’
Senator Risa Hontiveros is seeking justice for the abuses committed during the martial law regime of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
On the 47th year anniversary of the martial law proclamation in the country, Hontiveros said the nation can’t simply forget and move on from the dark period where many people were tortured and killed and lots of public funds were stolen.
“Madami ang sugat na dulot ng Martial Law: 👉🏽 5-10 bilyong dolyar na ninakaw; 👉🏽 mahigit 34,000 tinortyur; 👉🏽 mahigit 3,000 sinalvage. Paano mag-move-on kung walang katarungan sa mga biktima at pag-ako ng kasalanan? #NeverForget,” she wrote on Facebook.
