THE Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) in Davao has not received any formal complaint on human rights violation from the public, following the declaration of the martial law in Mindanao last May 23.

IBP-Davao Chapter president lawyer Rogelio Largo said there are no martial law-related human rights violations reported.

"We always advocate what is right and what is good. We have not received any formal complaint yet about human rights abuses or violations here in Davao City and in the region," Largo said.

Largo said the IBP bared several times that it is willing to receive complaints and assist martial law victims of abuse but there is none so far.

Davao City assistant prosecutor Rizalyn Gonzales-Pontanos, for her part, said most of the complaints filed before the prosecution office are drug offenses, theft or robbery, anti-child abuse, among others.

President Rodrigo Duterte declared martial law in Mindanao last May 23 amid the ongoing encounter between the terrorist Maute Group and government forces in Marawi.
