By Gemma Regina Cunanan, Director of Amnesty Philippines 5 March
On 16 February, Jerryme Corre celebrated his birthday, joined by his wife and Amnesty Philippines staff at Angeles City Jail. Jerryme has spent the last three years imprisoned there after police allegedly tortured him into a confession. Gemma Regina Cunanan, Director of Amnesty Philippines, describes the day."I can never give enough thanks. These [letters] give me strength. It also gives courage to my wife. We are not alone in this fight. Many people also seek justice for us." Jerryme Corre
When Jerryme walked out to meet us on Monday at Angeles City Jail, his smile was wide. Our team from Manila had brought thousands of letters from all over the world – and a cake.
