Philippines: Torture survivor faces third arrest: Adora Faye de Vera

Over a month since her arrest, martial law survivor Adora Faye de Vera remains detained on charges of murder, frustrated murder and rebellion. Her family has denied these charges, saying she is being targeted for her activism, including her work to seek justice for victims of martial law abuses.
