Phl at worst

Sep 26, 2017

INDEED, THE Philippines has the worst level of impunity in the world!

This, according to the 2017 Global Impunity Index released by the University of the Americas Puebla in Mexico, with the Philippines scoring 75.6, the highest level of impunity among 69 countries.

The global index measures impunity levels worldwide and its direct effect on other issues such as inequality, corruption, and violence.

Said the GII report: “The Philippines is going through one of its most critical moments, due to the increase of violence related with organized crime and increased terrorist activities from local gangs linked to the Islamic State.”

Further: “High rates of impunity can lead to socioeconomic inequality, legal inequality, rule-of-law problems, insufficient economic development, difficulties to attract foreign investment and tourism, as well as an increase in human rights violations.”

Shame.
