AJLPP HAILS PHILIPPINE SUPREME COURT DECISION FOR SATUR OCAMPO

AJLPP-New York | The Alliance for A Just and Lasting Peace in the Philippines (AJLPP) shared the progressive Filipino democratic movement joy and relief over the Supreme Court decision for the detained BAYAN MUNA Congress person Satur Ocampo.

It proved US President and jurist John Quincy Adams statement; “ The independence of the court safeguards the independence of the nation.”

The AJLPP also shared the revolutionary optimism of Ka. Satur when he said: “ “At the very least [the high court] will order the case reinvestigated; at most, it will quash the information altogether”

“The fact that the Supreme Court granted me bail indicates that the government violated the process in filing the charge against me and that the charge itself is defective and thus I should be entitled to my freedom”

While we savor the tactical victory we are not completely happy that Congressperson Ka Bel ( Crispin Beltran) is still languishing in jail together with more than 200 other political prisoners like the Mamburao 6 and the Tagaytay 5 all of home are peasants. We should exert all efforts to free all political prisoners and stop the political persecution under the US- Arroyo regime. more...  0 Comments
