‘Critical voices like his are essential to any democracy’- Hontiveros on Bello's arrest


The opposition senator has made her sentiments known as to the arrest of labor leader Walden Bello because of a cyber libel case filed against the latter.


“I would like to express deep concern over the arrest of former Akbayan Rep. Walden Bello, a longtime comrade and friend,” Senator Risa Hontiveros said in her recent Tweet.

“Walden is a leading public intellectual and a steadfast campaigner for justice and human rights. Critical voices like his are essential to any democracy,” she adds.


Hontiveros reiterates that in this time, the country needs Bello whom the senator considers as a freedom fighter for the Philippines.


“While Walden and I could sometimes disagree, he will always have a special place in my heart. Now more than ever, we need more people like him, whose genuine commitment to freedom and democracy is beyond question,”  Hontiveros said.
