Martial Law victims call for distribution of remaining compensation funds

Victims of human rights violations under Ferdinand Marcos’ Martial Law called on government to extend the validity of reparation funds set to expire on August 11.

The Samahan ng mga Ex-Detainees Laban sa Detensyon at Aresto (SELDA) said that not all legitimate victims have been given reparation from funds sequestered from the late dictator’s stolen wealth.

The martial law compensation board is still in possession of tens of millions of undistributed funds which it has to return to the National Treasury on Saturday, (Video by Joseph Cuevas)
