Lead story see above.

Last 24 February, Senator Leila de Lima marked five years of
incarceration in the Philippines. Under the administration of
recently-elected President Ferdinand Marcos Jr., de Lima remains jailed,
despite not being convicted of a crime, and despite the recantations of
three key accusers, who say they provided testimony because of pressure.

In the meanwhile, the extrajudicial drug war killings begun by former
President Rodrigo Duterte continue. The Office of the Prosecutor (OTP)
of the International Criminal Court, after pausing its investigation
following a Duterte administration treaty motion, has sought court
authorization to resume. But the Marcos administration has rejected the
investigation and said it will not cooperate.

In "The Continuing Detention of Senator Leila de Lima," speakers will
review her case, and the larger human rights situation in the Philippines.

This is a side event organized for the 51st session of the UN Human
Rights Council. It is organized by DRCNet Foundation, a US-based NGO in
consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council, with
cosponsor Associazone Luca Coscioni. Visit
