Philippines: Health professional action: 43 detained medical personnel
Amnesty International is concerned for the safety of 43 health workers detained by the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) since 6 February 2010. Joint forces from the military and police forcibly entered a private residence in Morong town, Rizal province, where the health workers were staying. The health workers were not informed of the reason of their arrest or where they were being taken, and Amnesty International is concerned that their rights to due process are being violated.
