Statement Sen. Teofisto “TG” Guingona on Judilyn Oliveros and Morong 43

I appeal for the immediate release of Carina “Judilyn” Oliveros for humanitarian reasons. She had just undergone Caesarian section delivery. She should be allowed to recover and take care of her newborn child outside of the confines of prison. Her petition for release on recognizance in order for her to breastfeed her child for at least six months should have been granted. Moreover, her transfer in handcuffs from the Philippine General Hospital to Camp Bagong Diwa is inhumane.

Another detainee, Ms. Mercedes (Mercy) Castro, will also soon give birth on October. I do not want the same thing to happen to her. I ask for the immediate resolution of the case and hope that all of the Morong 43 would be finally released.
