Grant bail to women’s rights and children’s rights advocate Ma. Salome “Sally” Ujano now!
Long-time women’s and children’s rights advocate, Ma. Salome “Sally” Ujano was arrested by agents of the Philippine National Police (PNP) on 14 November 2021 in Malolos, Bulacan on rebellion charges filed against her in 2006. PNP Chief PGen Dionardo Carlos asserted that Sally’s arrest stemmed from her alleged involvement as a high-ranking official of the Communist Party of the Philippines – New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) in the ambush of two military personnel in Quezon Province in 2005. The PNP also said that Sally has been in hiding for fifteen (15) years.
These accusations are baseless. Sally is the National Coordinator of the Philippines Against Child Trafficking (PACT) and, at the time of the alleged crime, was the executive director of the Women’s Crisis Center. Both institutions are committed to work earnestly for women and children’s rights, more specifically against all forms of violence and trafficking in women and children.
