By International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines
We, the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines, express outrage at the government of President Benigno S. Aquino III for not allowing Kim Chatillon-Meunier to board her plane in Manila bound for Hong Kong last night, 13 September, and worse, for putting her in jail based on spurious charges. Kim was reportedly barred from taking her flight by officials of the Bureau of Immigration, claiming that her name is on a so-called “watchlist” and that she participated in a protest rally against the 21 July State of the Nation Address (SONA) of President BS Aquino. We are deeply alarmed that a certain Commissioner Siegfred Mison allegedly ordered her detention in Bicutan, Taguig, to face “intelligence personnel”.

“We strongly denounce the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Philippine National Police (PNP) for the blatant rights violations caused by their indiscriminate firing and air strikes against the civilian communities in Sagada, Mountain Province. The incident did not only wreak destruction to the environment but also inflicted psychological trauma among the children and indigenous people of Cordillera,” said Children’s Rehabilitation Center (CRC) Executive Director Jacquiline Ruiz.
