• BILL PROHIBITS PUBLIC PRESENTATION OF SUSPECTED CRIMINALS

    0

    Presentation of suspected criminals in media may soon be declared an offense punishable with imprisonment and fine. Rep. Joseller “Yeng” Guiao of Pampanga said that the practice of police authorities of presenting suspects before a press conference is a violation of human rights. “Even if the charges, if at all they are filed, are later dismissed, the zeal of our law enforcers in showing that they are on top of a case could besmirch the name and reputation of a suspect or their family. In so far as the suspect—whose name and face have already appeared in newspapers or television—is concerned, the harm has already been done,” Guiao said.
