You can now the full video of activist Reina Mae Nasino at the Funeral of her Baby River. It was a surprise to the family of Nasino upon seeing her with over 20 members of the Philippine Police and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) guarding her.
According to the mother of Reina Mae, she rails against BJMP officers over the treatment of daughter Reina Mae, who remains handcuffed. Says she wanted to spend private moments with Reina Mae but she couldn’t even hug her daughter. She never asked for assistance from BJMP/police.
According to Kodao Productions, “
LIVE: Inilalabas na ang labi ni Baby River sa La Funeraria Rey sa Pandacan, Manila upang ihatid sa Manila North Cemetery ngunit kinaripas ito ng takbo ng Kapulisan.See Less.”
Kapatid spokesperson Fides Lim makes a statement against the heavy security deployed by the police for the burial of Baby River Nasino at the Manila North Cemetery.
Reina Mae Nasino was arrested in November 2019 with two fellow activists after police raided an office where they lived at the time. They were charged with the illegal possession of firearms and explosives – charges all three have denied. According to Nasino, the ammunition was planted by authorities amid a widening crackdown against left-leaning activists.
