43 jailed health workers appeal anew for ‘immediate’ gov’t action

By Karen Boncocan

MANILA, Philippines – The 43 health workers who are under military custody for allegedly being communists are appealing for support in a letter they wrote on Monday.

After almost eight months in detention and an appeal to President Benigno Aquino III for the release of one jailed mother and child, the health workers this time asked human rights lawyers to remind the President about taking "immediate and impartial action" on their case and to "restore the rule of law...above all, human rights."
