Marine jailed for Erap Documentary files for Habeas Corpus again

Why was the marine jailed? For possessing and passing along his CD copy of Erap's documentary re Edsa Dos to other marines.

From the inquirer:

Lawyer Harry Roque, who filed the second petition on Raymund’s behalf, pointed out that, after almost two years in detention, the military has yet to try his client.

The CD has been banned from showing by the Movies, Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB). Still, Roque said up to this date, no trial has ever been conducted.

If this kind of thing happened during the Erap administration, there would be tremendous outrage from civil rights groups and civil libertarians in this country.
