National Union of People’s Lawyers president Edre Olalia slammed the decision of the Sandiganbayan to dismiss the case against cops and army generals filed by health workers collectively called the “Morong 43.

In a Facebook post, Olalia stressed that in case of arrest, detention or torture, everyone has the right to contact their counsel of choice—something that the NUPL said was taken from the Morong 43.

“For crying out loud, they were blindfolded, handcuffed, deprived of sleep, tortured, scoffed at, defiled, threatened to be killed, told there is no law in there, that their captors were the law, and that their lawyers have forgotten or abandoned them,” said Olalia.
