Cagayan antimining leader arrested over Facebook post

11:13 Oct 29 2012 Bayombong, Philippines

The leader of an antimining group in Cagayan was arrested for posting an allegedly libelous account about a mining issue on her Facebook page in May last year.

Garcia, 62, said her arrest was an act of harassment, narrating how she was taken into custody by National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) agents.

“I am a senior citizen but I was treated like a hardened criminal. They did not even give me a chance to bathe or change from my house clothes. They just dragged me into a car,” she said.

The agents brought Garcia to the NBI regional office in Tuguegarao City, about three hours from Gonzaga, where she was detained overnight Thursday.
