MANILA, Philippines — Environmental activists Jhonila Castro and Jhed Tamano have posted bail on Wednesday after a Bulacan court ordered their arrest last February 2 for grave oral defamation.

Bail was set at P18,000.


“Finding the said bail bond to be in order, the same is hereby approved and accepted,” the release order of the Municipal Trial Court of Doña Remedios Trinidad read.


Meanwhile, the same court set the arraignment and pre-trial of Castro and Tamano on March 15.

In January, the Department of Justice approved the filing of charges against Castro and Tamano after the two claimed in a press conference that they were abducted by members of the military, while the authorities said that the two were former members of rebel insurgent groups who surrendered to them.
