Raps eyed for abusive Filipino officers in video

Raps eyed for abusive Filipino officers in video

The Philippines' human rights chief says she will make sure that army officers who were caught on a YouTube video beating and slapping recruits during training will be criminally charged.
Loretta Ann Rosales of the Philippines' Commission on Human Rights said Tuesday that the officers should not just face administrative charges for acts she called "grossly inhuman."
Military chief Lt. Gen. Eduardo Oban says he has asked the army to check if and how the officers involved in the 2008 incident were punished.
Communist rebels say they obtained the video from disgruntled troops and posted it on the video-sharing website to underscore the abuses army officers commit even on their men.
Rosales says she is looking into a similar complaint of abuse on police recruits.
