International Humanitarian Law Violations
of the CPP-NPA-NDF
From the ambush and assassination of off-duty troops and government workers to indiscriminate civilian executions, the CTG through its armed component, the New People's Army, has repeatedly and systematically violated human rights and international treaties that have been in effect for nearly seventy years.
"International humanitarian law is a set of rules which seek, for humanitarian reasons, to limit the effects of armed conflict.
It protects persons who are not or are no longer participating in the hostilities and restricts the means and methods of warfare.
International humanitarian law is also known as the law of war or the law of armed conflict."
