Philippines: Respect freedom of expression and peaceful assembly of all human rights activists including non-nationals
Amnesty International is gravely concerned over the recent crackdown by the Philippine government on the exercise by non-nationals of their rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly. Most recently, on 14 August 2018, Professor Gill Boehringer, an Australian lawyer, academic and human rights activist, who had visited the country on numerous occasions over the past decade, was expelled by the Philippines’ Bureau of Immigration (BI) who cited his alleged participation in “domestic protest actions in the past”. Amnesty International urges the Philippine authorities to end its harassment of peaceful activists who enter the country and to respect the rights to freedom of expression and assembly of all peaceful activists, including non-nationals.
