The Supreme Court has banned the Philippine National Police from conducting surveillance on the family of an alleged member of the New People's Army who was gunned down by authorities in 2018.

The court issued a permanent protection order under the writ of amparo in favor of Vivian Sanchez, the widow of Eldie Labinghisa, one of seven supposed communist rebels killed by the PNP in Barangay Atabay, San Jose in Antique in August 2018."In deciding whether or not Vivian was able to prove with substantial evidence her entitlement to the privilege of a writ of amparo, the SC found that the totality of Vivian’s evidence undoubtedly showed that she became a person of interest after she had first visited the funeral home, where her photo was taken," the court said.

Sanchez filed a petition for the writ of amparo at the San Jose Regional Trial Court against Police Superintendents Marc Anthony Darroca and Leo Irwin D. Agpangan, Police Chief Superintendent John C. Bulalacao, and police officers under their authority.

It also called on the PNP to enjoin its police officers to"respect human dignity and human rights, and to judiciously use their authority in the performance of duty" as the treatment of Sanchez"does not reflect the professional and courteous image" that it wishes to convey as an institution.
