received this text message yesterday:
sc (Supreme Court) orders nolcom (Northern Operational Command) and palparan to produce 2 missing UP studes on july 24 10am at the Court of Appeals.
this development after parents of Karen and Sherlyn filed a petition for habeas corpus last monday. palparan and the nolcom have earlier denied involvement in the abduction but they will now have to answer to the SC. further, the SC order makes the legal case against the respondents stronger because the SC has just concurred with the petitioners’ claim that the two are indeed in military hands.
view copy of the SC resolution here.
july 22, incidentally, is Karen’s 23rd birthday. it would be the grandest birthday gift. and she gets to march with her friends and family on the july 24 SONA protests.
