On November 23, 2009, 57 civilians including 31 journalists and media workers and two women lawyers were brutally killed in Ampatuan, Maguindanao. The perpetrators involved belonged to a private army of a warlord in one of the so-called election hotspots in the country. The four prime suspects in the massacre of these unarmed civilians now claim that “they neither participated in the planning nor took part in the murder of innocent civilians,” asking for a dismissal of the multiple murder complaint filed against them.
