• Political prisoner mom will be separated from her 6-month old baby boy


    A Quezon court has denied the wish of political detainee Miradel Torres to be freed and to care for her son outside the confinement of the four walls of the cramped jail cell in Taguig City. The militant group Karapatan reiterated its call for the court to release Torres on just and humanitarian grounds. “While the whole world celebrated Mother’s Day, a mother in jail, Miradel Torres, dreads the day she and her more than five-month old baby Karl will be separated,” Karapatan secretary general, Cristina Palabay said. Miradel may soon let Karl go, freed from the bad jail conditions but denied the chance to be nursed by his own mother. Karl will turn six months old on May 19.
