SC oral arguments: Jardeleza sees basis to issue TRO on ‘Oplan Tokhang’

Supreme Court Associate Justice Francis Jardeleza believes there's a basis to stop "Oplan Tokhang," the house-to-house visitation during which police pleads with suspected drug users to change their ways.

"To my mind, and not examining the mass of facts presented by the petitioners, it seems to me there is a prima facie to issue a temporary restraining order against stage 3 [the CMC] on house-to-house visitation," Jardeleza said during Tuesday's oral arguments on...Keep on reading: SC oral arguments: Jardeleza sees basis to issue TRO on ‘Oplan Tokhang’.....»»

You may get in but you cannot get out of the government's list of drug personalities once you have been reported to barangay officials. Human rights advocates made this point on Tuesday before the Supreme Court during Tuesday's oral arguments on a petition questioning the constitutionality of the government's war on drugs.
