According to former Anakpawis Representative Ariel Casilao, Echano, 72, was undergoing medical treatment and unarmed when police forces raided his house.
“Our anger is beyond words. This is a culture of extrajudicial killings with impunity under the Duterte regime. This is a declaratory act that national leaders of legal-democratic movement are now being targeted to be killed by the Duterte regime,” Casilao said.
