Editor's Note: I would like to share this copy of my brother Alfred Simbulan's speech during a human rights forum of the Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (PAHRA), Task Force Detainees and PhilRights. A former political detainee, Alfred was the Chief of Staff during the three terms of the late Congressman Bonifacio Gillego at the House of Representatives; after the retirement of Rep. Gillego, he also served as Chief of Staff of Congressman Juan Miguel Zubiri, who later won a seat in the Senate. From 2006 onwards Alfred resigned from Congress and became a full-time farmer, till his untimely death in 2016.
