Study uncovers police abuse of Filipino women

MANILA (UCAN): A study by the Centre for Women’s Resources revealed that 56 Filipino policemen were involved in 33 cases of violence against women over the past two years. 
 
The results of the study were released on October 31 in the wake of reports that a police officer in Manila allegedly raped the 15-year-old daughter of a suspected drug dealer.
 
Data collated showed that out of the 33 cases since July 2016, when the president, Rodrigo Duterte, came to power, 13 of them involved minors.
