Erwin Tulfo's Burst Anger to CALD (DILAWAN) who urged the PH Government to release Leila De Lima . MUST WATCH!






Erwin Tulfo burst anger to Women's Caucus of the Council of Asian Liberals and Democrats (CALD) who visited Senator Leila M. De Lima who urged the Philippine government to release Senator Leila de Lima and absolve her of the drug charges, which they branded as “politically motivated.”


" Nangi-alam na naman binisita po si Senador Leila De Lima at sinabing pakawalan si Senador De Lima dahil walang kasalanan. Alam niyo kung ako ho yung Pangulo baka pinagsasapak ko na yung mga ulo ng mga hinayupak na ito eh at sinipa ko palabas ng Bansa eh"
"Nakaka bwesit kasi basta-basta nalang, kung sino sino pupunta rito na mambabatas sa ibang bansa, e kung tayo nga kung may nakukulong na kababayan natin, except kung nasa Death Row na, eh hindi nga tayo nangingi-alam na sabihing pakawalan yan, pakawalan ito."

Jayanthi Devi Balaguru, CALD Women’s Caucus Chairperson and head of delegation, implored the courts “to rule on the petitions of Senator de Lima in accordance with the right to fair and speedy trial, which is recognized in both the Philippine constitution and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), where the Philippines is state party.  Every day that Senator de Lima spends in jail as a political prisoner is an affront to human rights, rule of law and public accountability – fundamental principles that the Philippines prides itself on as a democratic country.”

“We call on the Philippine authorities to immediately release Senator De Lima by withdrawing the drug trafficking charges against her,” Emily Lau, a former legislator who was part of Hong Kong’s umbrella movement, said in a statement.

Representatives from the Women’s Caucus of the Council of Asian Liberals and Democrats (CALD) who visited De Lima on Thursday at the Philippine National Police (PNP) Custodial Center in Camp Crame, Quezon City, said the senator was detained due to her staunch opposition to alleged extrajudicial killings in the country.

“Clearly, this is a case of political persecution resulting from Senator De Lima’s staunch opposition to extra-judicial killings, and her continuing detention is a travesty of justice. At the very least, she should be allowed to post bail given the weakness of the evidence against her,” Lau said.
