Political prisoner Andrea Rosal supports impeachment case vs. Aquino

Statement of Benito Tiamzon and Wilma Austria-Tiamzon on Supt. Mario Malana


Supt. Mario Malana, Chief of the PNP Crame Custodial Center, and other rank and file police personnel, seem to be sacrificial lambs in the VIP treatment of pork barrel biggies and the overstaying visit brouhaha. His relief from his post, while at first blush seemingly laudable, may actually be diverting the need for sincere attention and pinning ultimate responsibility from the reported sweetheart deals by PNP superiors and mercenary politicians with these high-maintenance celebrity detainees. 

Claims Board should recognize 9,539 class suit members – SELDA

9,539, not 6,000.

SELDA (Samahan ng Ex-Detainees Laban sa Detensyon at Aresto) challenged the Benigno Aquino- appointed Human Rights Victims Claims Board to categorically and publicly state that it recognizes the 9,539 martial law victims as those covered by “conclusive presumption” under the RA 10368, the Human Rights Victims Recognition and Reparation Law. The more than 9,000 victims and the 24 direct action plaintiffs were those who filed and won the class action suit filed in a Hawaii court against former Pres. Ferdinand E. Marcos.

Political prisoners’ fast on its 2nd week, call for release remains unheard—Selda

“As former Batangas governor Antonio Leviste walks out of prison, 449 political prisoners, who were wrongfully accused of criminal offenses because of their political beliefs, will have to spend Christmas again in jail. Some 28 of them are elderly like Leviste. They, too, deserve to be out of prison. Afterall, they are not criminals,” said Marie Hilao-Enriquez, chairperson of SELDA and Karapatan.
