Bayan on the release of Sen. Leila de Lima
The release is long overdue. Sen. Leila de Lima deserves her freedom and ultimately the dismissal of all remaining cases against her. We wish her the best on her temporary release and look forward to having her back at the physical frontlines of the defense of human rights.
Duterte and those responsible for the filing of trumped up charges should be held accountable in due time.
We call again for the release of all political prisoners, 700 now under the Marcos regime. The filing of trumped up charges should stop. ###
