Imelda Tabiando, Spokesperson, DEFEND: As we painfully grieve for the killing of Delle, we also persist in seeking for justice.  To facilitate our quest for truth and justice, we call for cessation of AFP operations in Abra. Impartial and thorough investigation of the circumstances behind the killing of Delle and subsequent accountability of the perpetrators can best be undertaken when AFP troops are withdrawn from the area. We call for AFP compliance on CAHRIHL- Comprehensive Agreement on Human rights and International Humanitarian law in dealing with armed conflict in the Philippines.
