Know your rights primer

With the rise in the numbers of alleged drug users and pushers being arrested, killed, and compelled to surrender, the Free Legal Assistance Group (FLAG) and the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ) offers this instructive primer on the rights of all citizens under specific situations, according to the Constitution, the statues, and jurisprudence.

PCIJ has translated FLAG’s primer into Filipino.

There are five parts of the primer with related infographics on their blog, www.pcij.org/blog

Here are the five parts and their links:
