Reuters posted recently a story assessing President Benigno Aquino III’s human rights record two years after he was elected into office on a promise of clean government and concern for human rights.

Human Rights Watch also issued a report on the Aquino administration’s handling of the human rights situation in the country, and the verdict is not so nice, to say the least.
