Assistant Minority Leader and Gabriela Women’s Party Rep. Arlene Brosas expressed outrage over the killing of a woman who filed rape and extortion charges against 11 policemen in Cebu.

“The rape and killing of Retchie Nepomuceno adds up to the many cases of sexual violence perpetrated by the police amid the lockdown. Last year, 15-year old Fabel Pineda suffered the same fate in Ilocos Sur when she filed a complaint against cops who molested her,” Brosas said.

Nepomuceno was shot dead while standing by the road in Barangay Basak on Monday night.

“Sobra-sobra ang binigay na kapangyarihan sa hanay ng kapulisan, dagdag pa na halos wala namang napapanagot sa mga kaso ng pang-aabuso na isinasampa sa kanila kaya malakas ang kanilang loob na maghasik ng lagim sa lansangan,” Brosas added.

Brosas called for an independent and transparent investigation on cases of violence against women involving policemen.

“Hustisya para kay Retchie Nepomuceno! Justice for all women and children who are victims of police-perpetrated sexual violence!” she added.

The Center for Women’s Resources revealed that 63 police officers have been involved in cases of violence against women including rape from July 2016 to December 2019.
