[From the web] On our 12th Year Commemoration (By Mary Ann Burgos) -Free Jonas Burgos Movement

Three days after my daughter was discharged from a 5-day stay in the hospital, we got the news about the delisting. 625 names, one name of which is my husband’s, Jonas Joseph Burgos.

A solo-parent for 12 years since Jonas’ abduction, day to day living has not been easy for my daughter and myself. And to hear that the government has petitioned the UN-WGEID to delist the 625 names! This is like scraping an open wound right to the bone.

Undersecretary Severo Catura of the Presidential Human Rights Committee never consulted any victim or any of their families nor did he get his information from the CHR.

Catura’s premises for the delisting are all false.
