Jason Ivler appeals to UN "to direct PH to protect and respect his human rights"
Road rage suspect Jason Ivler has brought his case before the United Nations (UN), reports Inquirer.net. He asked the international body to "direct the Republic of the Philippines to take corrective measures to protect and respect (his) human rights."
In a five-page complaint, Ivler said he suffered "inhumane and degrading treatment" from local authorities, reports PhilStar.com. He accused National Bureau of Investigation agents of "unnecessarily and inhumanely" beating him up. He also complained of having to stay in a "crowded and dirty (city jail) while his wounds were not yet healed and a colostomy bag is still attached to his abdomen."
Ivler’s mother Marlene Aguilar-Pollard said the complaint dated October 27 was sent to the Geneva office of the UN Human Rights Council Committee on Civil and Political Rights on November 26.
