Case dismissed! Eric Acosta wins FREEDOM

This just came in from the Public Attorney's Office which is headed by Chief Persida Rueda-Acosta (no relation to political prisoner Ericson "Eric" Acosta who is recovering from a kidney operation at the National Kidney Institute in Quezon City).


"Kinatigan ng  Department of Justice (DoJ)  ang dalawang taon nang petition for review ng cultural worker at makatang  si Ericson Acosta.
"Si Acosta  ay naaresto sa San Jorge , Samar, noong 2011, habang nagsasagawa ito ng human rights research. Siya ay pinaghinalang miyiembro ng  communist movement.
"Si Acosta ay nahaharap sa kasong illegal possession of explosives sa Samar Regional Trial Court.
"Kasalukuyang naka-confine ngayon si Acosta sa National Kidney and Transplant Institute  sa Quezon City.
"Sa tulong ng Public Attorney's Office, kinatigan ng Samar Regional Trial Court ang hiling ni Acosta na makapagpagamot  dahil sa nararanasan nitong sakit sa kidney."#
