"The Philippines has been plagued for decades by systemic impunity, evidenced by the current widespread practice of torture and extrajudicial executions in the country. Although in 2009, the country enacted a comprehensive Anti-Torture Act, which established a strong framework for the rehabilitation of torture victims and the documentation of their torture experience, these provisions of the Act have not been implemented. Together with MAG, the IRCT has worked to fight impunity by strengthening civil society and health sector partnerships to implement the Anti-Torture Act and to provide rehabilitation and documentation services to victims."
