News at Eleven: [Ericson] Acosta, 40, whose siblings now

all live with their own families abroad, is a cultural worker and activist arrested by the military in San Jorge, Samar while doing volunteer research work for a local peasant group. Acosta has been detained at the Calbayog Sub-Provincial Jail for 23 months on trumped-up charges of illegal possession of explosives.

Yesterday, Acosta's supporters were pleasantly surprised to confirm that the Gandara RTC in Samar granted him temporary release for a medical check-up.
