On Gen. Danny Lim's temporary release

We welcome the decision of RTC Makati Branch 150 Judge Alameda to allow the temporary liberty of Gen. Danny Lim, one of our official senatorial candidates for the LP, to attend the 75th founding anniversary of his alma mater, St. Louis School of Solano, Nueva Vizcaya.

The three-day pass will give him the opportunity to meet his leaders and supporters in order to better prepare for the campaign. We in the LP see this temporary release as a sign that the court sees him as neither a flight risk nor a danger to society. He is, after all, presumed innocent until proven otherwise.

We hope to make the necessary representations with the RTC to allow Gen. Lim at some future date during the campaign to attend our major campaign activities so that he may bring his platform of governance and reforms to the voters.
