MANILA, Philippines – The Senate committee on public order and dangerous drugs conducted a hearing on August 24 and September 5 on the death of Kian delos Santos, the 17-year-old whom Caloocan police are accused of executing in an anti-drug raid.
Senate Resolution 471 has been filed, expressing the sense to condemn the killing of the Grade 11 student.
