Did martial law ever end?

MANILA (UCAN) : The Association of Major Religious Superiors in The Philippines called on the government to compensate human rights victims of Martial Law as the country marked the 43rd anniversary of its declaration on September 21.

In 2013, the Philippine government passed into law the Human Rights Victims Reparation and Recognition Act to recognise victims of martial law and indemnify them for the suffering they experienced.
