Letter of Support: Silliman University, Dumaguete City

11 March 2010

General Secretary
United Church for Christ in the Philippines

Dear Bishop Pascua:

We join the United Church of Christ in the Philippines, and the rest of the country, in condemning all forms of human rights violations.

It saddens us to hear about the state of Dr. Alex Montes and the rest of the 42 detained health workers. Silliman University extends our prayers to Dr. Montes, his colleagues and their families as they go through a challenging phase in their life. We pray that the truth and their faith in the Lord will carry them through.

The University calls on the Philippine government to help ensure an objective and speedy trial of the case. We hold in high esteem the members of judiciary, and we pray that their decisions be impartial and free of external influence.

Together with the Silliman University Church, Silliman University will explore how else we can be of assistance to Dr. Montes and his colleagues in the best way possible for us.

With my best regards,


Ben S Malayang III
