Incoming president Noynoy Aquino should immediately free all political prisoners and political detainees
On Political Prisoners

The Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP), as a human rights organization welcomes the incoming president Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino’s pledge to track down perpetrators of extrajudicial killings in the country during his meeting with the delegations of the European Union as reported in the June 1, 2010 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer (PDI).   

If he will remain true to his words, it will create a big difference compared to the outgoing administration of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo that has instigated and abetted a culture of impunity in our society.  

The incoming president Noynoy Aquino should also immediately free all political prisoners and political detainees as a confidence building measure in attaining peace, and enjoin the NDF and MILF to seriously tackle the basic roots of social conflict in the peace negotiation table. TFDP’s records show that we have 262 political prisoners and political detainees jailed across the country as of March 2010.

We need not remind the President-elect that his father the late Ninoy Aquino was a political prisoner and upon his return was a victim of extrajudicial killing. The late President Cory Aquino immediately released political prisoners and political detainees during the start of her term as a gesture of peace and reconciliation.  

We expect no less from the son upon whose shoulders now rest the task of building this nation from the ravages of corruption, impunity and poverty.

Filipinos deserve to enjoy freedom and democracy and a peaceful life for all.
