Morong 43 vs GMA et. al pre-trial set today

Convict GMA, et. al for their human rights abuses!

This is the battle cry of the Morong 43 in their pre-trial today at Branch 96 of the Quezon City Regional Trial Court. The group called for Congresswoman Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and her top military and police officials’ conviction on the rights abuses they committed against the health workers in 2010.

We want GMA and her cohorts to pay for their human rights abuses,” said Dr. Alex Montes, one of the Morong 43 and plaintiffs in the P15 million civil suit against the former president.

The other defendants are former National Security Adviser Norberto Gonzales, former Armed Forces Chief of Staff Gen. Victor Ibrado, former Army chief Maj. Gen. Delfin Bangit and former 2nd Infantry Division chief Maj. Gen. Jorge Segovia. Also included are Lt. Col. Cristobal Zaragosa, Maj. Manuel Tabion, Col. Aurelio Baladlad, Lt. Col. Jaime Abawag and Supt. Marion Balolong and Supt. Allan Nubleza -- all based in Camp Capinpin at the time the civil suit was filed in April 2011.

Dr. Montes recalled that today is also the third anniversary of the Ampatuan massacre and their second year of seeking justice for their plight. He furthered that the Aquino administration has “indeed fallen short on its promise of daang matuwid” because the wheels of justice grind ever so slowly and human rights violators like the Ampatuans and GMA are still not convicted.
