MANILA, Philippines—Malacañang defended on Saturday its decision to exclude extra-judicial killings of leftist activists and journalists from the coverage of the Truth Commission tasked to investigate anomalies in the Arroyo administration.

Secretary Edwin Lacierda, presidential spokesperson, said that cases of extra-legal killings, abductions and disappearances of activists and journalists were already being investigated by the Department of Justice.

“So we don’t need to bring them to the Truth Commission,” he said in a media forum over government-run dzRB.
