Karapatan says CA decision "anti-victim," won't help find Jonas

The human rights group Karapatan scored the Court of Appeals for its 'cowardly decision' on the petition for the writ of habeas corpus and writ of amparo petitions of Mrs. Edith Burgos, mother of missing activist Jonas Burgos.
"CA justices are trying to be on the safe side at the expense of the life of Jonas, their dismissal of the case won't help find him," said Marie Hilao-Enriquez, Karapatan Secretary General.
