AMP-Statement: Arrest of UCCP pastor Dan Balucio 2021

The Aktionsbündnis Menschenrechte Philippinen (AMP) and its member organizations express their deep concern about the recent human rights developments in the Philippines and especially about the arrest of human rights defender and United Church of Christ of the Philippines (UCCP) Pastor Dan Balucio on May 2, 2021.

The AMP strongly condemns the arrest of Dan Balucio and calls upon the Government of the Philippines to immediately drop the trumpedup charges against Pastor Dan Balucio and hold accountable the individuals and entities responsible for the rampant redtagging of NGOs and church workers, among others.
