Jovito Palparan are engaged in lively discussions regarding human rights investigations during the regular “Usaping Balita” media forum on July 30 in Quezon City. Lagman and Tañada say abductions and torture should be investigated and the perpetrators jailed, regardless of the victim’s nationality, affiliation or ideology. Palparan and Alcover, meanwhile, insist that human rights investigation should not discount all possible angles and not be biased and limited against a specific institution or group.
