Case Title:                           Quisora HAR 2
Case:                                     Harassment
Name of Victims:             Ernie Gonzales Quisora; John Clifford C. Bisol; Eduardo V. Muerong, Jr.; Daisy Mae M. Viola; Leneth F. Bacsal; Crystal Ann P. Lusuego; Applye B. Estuye; Jimbo R. Cruz; Rowel D.G. Chavez; and, Rheginald C. Padua
Date of Incident:              October 2014
Place of Incident:             Office of the City Prosecutor, Quezon City
Alleged Perpetrator:      Mr. Joseph D. Quiles
Motive:                                retribution against student leaders who supported/participated in the protest action initiated by faculty members

Account of the Incident:

Mr. Joseph D. Quiles, an instructor at the Marikina Polytechnic College, filed a perjury case (Article 183 of the Revised Penal Code) against: 1) Ernie Quisora, 2) John Clifford C. Bisol, 3) Eduardo V. Muerong, Jr., 4) Daisy Mae M. Viola, 5) Leneth F. Bacsal, 6) Crystal Ann P. Lusuego, 7) Applye B. Estuye, 8) Jimbo R. Cruz, 9) Rowel D.G. Chavez, and 10) Rheginald C. Padua.

The said case is filed at the office of Assistant City Prosecutor Conrado C. Rosario. By virtue of a subpoena sent to Quisora and the other respondents, they already appeared in the preliminary investigation conducted on October 2, 2014, held at the Office of the Prosecutor.

Based on previous accounts, it has been reported that Quisora, a student of Marikina Polytechnic College, and a Student Council volunteer, suffered minor injuries during a scuffle between him and Mr. Quiles, a college professor. Quisora suffered a bruise on his left hand. He also felt pain on his nape. The incident happened on December 20, 2013. Quiles and school guards alleged that Quisora is a supporter of the protest action conducted by the faculty association.

Quisora and other student leaders already filed a formal complaint to the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) and Civil Service Commission (CSC) against Quiles.

Quiles filed the perjury case apparently as retribution and a counter attack against leaders and advocates of students’ rights and welfare, particularly members and volunteers of the Student Council.

REQUESTED ACTION:
Please write a letter to the following authorities, calling on them to initiate inquiries into the case of repression and harassment against Ernie Gonzales Quisora; John Clifford C. Bisol; Eduardo V. Muerong, Jr.; Daisy Mae M. Viola; Leneth F. Bacsal; Crystal Ann P. Lusuego; Applye B. Estuye; Jimbo R. Cruz; Rowel D.G. Chavez; and, Rheginald C. Padua, and urge concerned agencies to immediately intervene and resolve the case.

SAMPLE LETTER

Dear ____________,

I am writing to draw your attention regarding the retribution against student leaders who supported/participated in the protest action held in December 2013 which was initiated by faculty members of the Marikina Polytechnic College.

I have learned that Mr. Joseph D. Quiles, a college instructor, filed a perjury case (Article 183 of the Revised Penal Code) against: 1) Ernie Quisora, 2) John Clifford C. Bisol, 3) Eduardo V. Muerong, Jr. 4) Daisy Mae M. Viola, 5) Leneth F. Bacsal, 6) Crystal Ann P. Lusuego, 7) Applye B. Estuye, 8) Jimbo R. Cruz, 9) Rowel D.G. Chavez, and 10) Rheginald C. Padua.

The said case is filed at the office of Assistant City Prosecutor Conrado C. Rosario. By virtue of a subpoena sent to Quisora and other respondents, they already appeared in the preliminary investigation conducted on October 2, 2014, held at the Office of the Prosecutor.

I have also learned that based on previous accounts, it has been reported that Quisora, a Student Council volunteer, suffered minor injuries during a scuffle between him and Mr. Quiles, a college professor. Quisora suffered a bruise on his left hand. He also felt pain on his nape. Quiles and school guards alleged that Quisora is a supporter of the protest action conducted by the faculty association.

It was also brought to my attention that Quisora and other student leaders already filed a formal complaint to the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) and Civil Service Commission (CSC) against Quiles.

Eventually, Quiles filed the perjury case against the student leaders and advocates of students’ rights and welfare, particularly members and volunteers of the Student Council.

Therefore, we believe that all cases filed against the students are mere harassments.

We now call on concerned government agencies to initiate inquiries into the said case and appropriate action must be done accordingly. Please guarantee in all circumstances the physical and psychological integrity of Ernie Quisora and companions, and put an end to these acts of harassment and repression.

I look forward to your urgent action.

Respectfully yours,
