We view with profound concern the illegal arrest and torture of the 43 community health development workers in Morong, Rizal.

This incident totally defies a logical frame of mind in the face of the abominable health situation of our people.

The continuous detention of the Morong 43 composed of doctors, a nurse, a midwife and health volunteers despite the absence of official charges for more than a week is a clear violation of human rights.
