Call for justice for the family of Darius Evangelista

8 Feb

Darius EvangelistaIn March 2010, Darius Evangelista was arrested in Manila on suspicion of theft. Fellow detainees saw him brought back to their cell badly injured, before being taken from the police station. They never saw him again.

In August 2010, a video was broadcast on national television of a naked man crying out in pain on the floor, while a police officer beat and abused him. Darius’s wife is convinced that the man in the video is her husband as she recognised his tattoos. It’s the last time she saw her husband alive.

No one has been brought to justice for the torture, enforced disappearance and possible extra-judicial execution of Darius Evangelista.

What you can do to help.

1. Write to the Chief of Philippine National Police calling for justice for the Evangelista family.  Address: PDG Nicanor Bartolome, PNP National Headquarters Camp General Crame, Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines.

2.Send a message via Facebook on the Philippines Police Chief’s Facebook page.

3. Send a message of support to the Evangelista family.  Address: Margie Evangelista, c/o Center for International Law, Unit 1904 Antel Corporate Center, 121 Valero Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City, Philippines
