Fil-Am activist surfaced; New case of abduction

In a Twitter post a few minutes ago, Bulatlat.com reported that US citizen Melissa Roxas, a Fil-Am activist abducted by suspected death squads of Arroyo regime, has been surfaced. Her two companions, Juanito Carabeo and John Edward Handoc, are still missing though. Bulatlat follows-up on the abduction with this article.

About two hours ago, Bulatlat.com reported a new case of abduction. “Mario Espiritu,organizer of peasants and workers in Mindoro Oriental, has been reported missing by Karapatan-Southern Tagalog” reports Bulatlat in an earlier Twitter post. “Espiritu,52, has been missing since May 23, Glen Malabanan of Karapatan-ST told Bulatlat.com. A quick reaction team has been sent by Karapatan-ST to search for Espiritu. The team is now in Mamburao, Mindoro Oriental.”

UPDATE: Melissa Roxas was tortured by the military
