Statement on 6th Anniversary
of Sen. Leila De Lima's Detention
24 February 2023 — On the sixth anniversary of Sen. Leila de Lima’s detention, we respectfully appeal for the Marcos administration to take necessary steps to pave the way for her release based on her constitutional right to a speedy trial.
We believe the justifications for her detention by the previous administration have long disappeared, as witnesses recanted their testimonies.
Aside from restoring her human rights, we believe her release will help undo or avoid other human rights violations. We believe this would contribute to the progress President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. has made in repairing the country’s reputation, which is important to strengthening the economy and creating more jobs for more Filipinos.
We are ready to assist in any way that can help achieve this goal.
