Press statement of Sen. Jamby Madrigal

We are now living in an unprecedented state of fear and intimidation. I strongly condemn the undue intimidation, veiled threats and repression being employed by Mrs. Arroyo and her lackey against media, the political opposition and some sectors of the church and businesses. I shall file a resolution in the Senate to have these repressive acts against media, such as the Tribune, be investigated. Medias freedom in a time of crisis should be respected. The media and political opposition are not the enemies of the state. Mrs. Arroyo should learn to distinguish the so-called enemies of the state from her detractors. Mrs. Arroyo is not the state. Fear has never won over Principles of freedom
