Kalupitan! Chel Diokno slams Nasino, child’s treatment during burial
FLAG Chair Chel Diokno slammed the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology officers over the handling of the burial of political detainee, Reina Mae Nasino’s child. The abogado mentioned that it’s nothing but a lack of mercy until the very end.
Pano kung ikaw yon: nilayo sayo ang anak mong agaw-buhay, tapos ganto pa gagawin sa bangkay nya. Di man tayo nagkakasundo sa pulitika, pare-pareho tayong anak o magulang. Kalupitan ang ginawa nila kay Reina Mae at Baby River. Ang batas ay batas, pero ang batas, dapat makatao. https://t.co/yyzwExHIGQ

Diokno noted that they already took her away from her ailing child and to continue to be disrespected this way at their final moments is an utter disrespect. The abogado appealed that they are all parents and children here regardless of politics.
The abogado emphasized that while it’s true that law is law, it should still have some humanity into it.
What a sad day for human rights!
