“Ipaglaban natin ang ating mga karapatan! FLAG to defend teacher who tweeted P50M for Duterte's head – Diokno





Atty. Chel Diokno, one of the losing senatorial candidates of the opposition last mid term election is really making himself more visible these days.

Aside from his criticisms for the governance of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte he is making himself a figure of hope for the perceived oppressed members of the society because of the present administration.

The Free Legal Assistance Group (FLAG) which he is the chairman has decided to be the defense lawyers of the public school teacher who posted in social media a reward of P50 million for anyone who can kill the President.

Ronnel Mas of Zambales was already released temporarily because of the bail he posted, he has accepted the pro bono services of FLAG to be his counsels of record.

“Tinanggap ng FLAG ang kaso ni Teacher Ronnel Mas dahil naniniwala kaming ilegal ang ginawang warrantless arrest sa kanya,” tweeted Diokno.

Diokno urges the people to be assertive in defending their civil liberties and to cower any abuse of such rights. “Ipaglaban natin ang ating mga karapatan. The moment we stop fighting for our rights is the moment we surrender to abuse,” he said.


P72,000 bail


In the one page order of the Olongapo city RTC Branch 72 Judge Richard Paradeza said the family of Mas was able to post the P72, 000 bail in connection with the inciting to sedition in relation to the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 filed by the NBI.

“Accused having posted his cash bond for his provisional liberty in the amount of P72, 000 which this Court finds to be in order, said accused is allowed to enjoy his provisional liberty under the said undertaking,” Paradeza’s order said.


“Accordingly, the NBI Manila is hereby ordered to release the accused unless detained for some other lawful cause/causes,” it added.

His arraignment is set on May 28 at 8:30 in the morning.
