Chel Diokno’s group to provide free legal assistance to the teacher who offers P50-M bounty to anyone who can end Duterte

Human rights lawyer Chel Diokno’s group announced that they’re going to provide free legal assistance to the teacher who allegedly offered P50-M bounty in exchange for President Rodrigo Duterte’s head.

In a tweet, Diokno said that his group, the Free Legal Assistance Group (FLAG), would help teacher Ronnel Mas from the case he’s facing, citing that what the government did to him was illegal.

“Tinanggap ng FLAG ang kaso ni Teacher Ronnel Mas dahil naniniwala kaming ilegal ang ginawang warrantless arrest sa kanya. Ipaglaban natin ang ating mga karapatan. The moment we stop fighting for our rights is the moment we surrender to abuse,” Diokno who’s the current chairman of FLAG said.

On May 19, Mas gained his temporary freedom after posting bail worth 72,000 pesos. The arraignment of the teacher is set on May 28.

On May 11, the teacher was caught by the members of NBI and admitted that he made a tweet putting P50-M bounty on the head of the President.

Before speaking about Mas, Diokno previously criticized the move of the law enforcers against a salesman who called President Duterte ‘crazy’.
