ACT Teachers Rep. Antonio Tinio on the release of the Tiamzons and other NDF consultants

19 August 2016 No Comment

We laud President Duterte for making good on his commitment to release the Tiamzon couple and other NDF consultants. What the Aquino administration was unwilling and unable to do, the Duterte administration accomplished in a matter of weeks. Pres. Duterte’s courageous action is in stark contrast to the intransigence of former Pres. Aquino and his clique of warmongers, who set aside the peace talks with the Communists and followed the path of all-out war.

The release can be taken as a powerful testament to the President’s commitment to the pursuit of a negotiated peace that will hopefully out an end to the ongoing civil war in our country.

We hope that in the coming weeks, the Duterte administration can follow through towards the release of the hundreds of political prisoners that remain unjustly incarcerated throughout the country.
