Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman lauds the signing of the Desaparecidos Law, which criminalizes enforced disappearances.

Lagman, the law's principal sponsor, says it will improve the delivery of justice and create better law enforcement mechanisms.

He adds, the Philippines is the first country in Asia with such a law.
