Amnesty UK County Co-ordinator for The Philippines

Canterbury member Huw Jones, who has close connections with that country, has recently been appointed Amnesty UK County Co-ordinator for The Philippines – a nation with increasing human rights issues since the election of President Duterte in 2016.  In March, Huw and his Filipina wife Sheila met the Amnesty Philippines Director, Butch Alano, when he visited UK. Butch has promised to “bombard” Huw with information and action requests from The Philippines, which is our Canterbury Group’s focus country.
