AFP protests too much

It’s like shooting the messenger if you don’t like his message, and then saying it just had to do with how he said it. The Armed Forces’ disbarment charge against public interest lawyer Harry Roque unfortunately pits the defenders of the republic against a defender of human rights.

It has been described as a hate crime, a death sentence passed on her for choosing a sexual orientation that strays from the mainstream. (We use the feminine pronoun in acknowledgement of her choice.)
