Farmer activists who are charged with multiple murder charges over the infamous Hilongos mass grave are seeking the dismissal of the cases, saying that the evidence presented against them were insufficient and fabricated.
Police Superintendent Herardo Hermosilla, head of the SOCO team, admitted before the court that his team did not do the digging of the alleged skeletal remains and that he does not know who did it.
“We cannot do anything. But just the same, this is completely a fabricated, planted and manufactured case. This is meant to demonize us and the mass movement.” — Benito Tiamzon
