Acosta, believes the death of Kian delos Santos is not an EJK







Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) Chief Persida Acosta believes that the case of 17 year-old Kian delos Santos is not an extra-judicial killing (EJK).

Acosta said that the guilty verdict against the three police officers who allegedly shot the boy is a proof that the state does not favor merciless killing.




“If this is state-sponsored, PAO cannot investigate, PAO cannot file cases against state actors in these killings. The NBI cannot go with us to investigate. The judges will not be able to hear the cases. There will be no verdict,” she said.

Police officer 3 Arnel Oares and PO1s Jeremias Pereda and Jerwin Cruz was found guilty of killing Kian during an anti-illegal drug operation on August 2017 by Caloocan Judge Rodolfo Azucena Jr.
