The Supreme Court (SC) has been asked on Friday (July 3) to show compassion and allow the temporary release of political prisoner Reina Mae Nasino and her two-day old baby from prison.

“We appeal especially to the Supreme Court for compassionate action on our long pending petition for the humanitarian release of the medically vulnerable to the COVID-18 pandemic,” Kapatid, a support group political prisoners and their families and friends, said in a statement on Friday (July 3).

“They include Reina Mae Nasino, who is one of the 22 petitioners,” the group reminded.

Nasino gave birth on JUly 1 at the Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital.

However, Kapatid criticized officials of the Manila City Jail for returning her to detention on Thursday night (July 2) along with her baby despite the continued spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus in jails.

“We condemn the surreptitious way that prison authorities secreted out Reina Mae and her baby although the Fabella hospital allowed both to stay in the hospital at least for a week to ensure continued medical attention and care for an underweight newborn,” it stated.

“No baby should be put inside prison especially at this time of the pandemic,” Kapatid stressed.

“Exposing both an infant child and her mother to the real threat of coronavirus infection defies logic,” it added.
