MANILA, Philippines- Lubhang ikinabahala ni Senador Risa Hontiveros ang pagkakaaresto kay Walden Bello, dating kinatawan ng Akbayan PartyList sa Mababang Kapulungan.

Sa pahayag, sinabi ni Hontiveros na dapat mabigyan si Bello ng parehas at transparent na imbestigasyon dahil walang sa kasong libelo hinggil sa pagbibigay kristisismo sa ilang isyu.

“I would like to express deep concern over the arrest of Former Akbayan Rep. Walden Bello, a longtime comrade and friend,” ani Hontiveros.

Aniya, nangunguna si Bello sa public intellectual at steadfast campaigner para sa katarungan at karapatang-pantao.

“Critical voices like his are essential to any democracy,” giit ni Hontiveros.

“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,” paliwanag niya.

“I would like to call on the administration to ensure a fair and transparent investigation,” patapos ng senador. Ernie Reyes
