SUN fan in Stanley asks for copy

29 April 2016

Kumusta po kayo? It has been a long time since I had gotten in touch dahil bihira na kaming makabasa ng The SUN kung hindi magdala ang mga taga Konsulado. This has something to do with the ever-changing policy here in jail.
Before I go further, let me express my gratitude for the song that Kuya Nicky (Flores) sang which you dedicated to me, during their annual visit for our Christmas entertainment here in prison. I shed tears of gratitude because you remembered me on this festive occasion.
It has been six years since the authorities here banned community newspapers, except for The SUN. However, for the past couple of years, minsan hindi pinapayagan ang The SUN na mai-hand in at kung minsan ay pinapayagan, depending on who is in the visit reception centre siguro. Kaya yung ibang dumadalaw sa amin ay kung minsan nagsasawa na sa pagdala dahil kalimitan ay ayaw tanggapin.
I am always arguing with the guards to please accept it. Sometimes I can persuade them and sometimes, it leads to bitter exchange of words. I always ask the Consulate staff to bring one during their quarterly visit pero minsan ay nakakalimutan nila.
Ang huli ko pang nabasa na issue ay iyong December na punong-puno ng mga balita sa nangyayari, kabilang ng tungkol sa laglag bala sa airport, sa mga politico at iba pang balita.
I really missed the many reports, including those on the OFWs who get into trouble with the law. Anyway, isang taon pa siguro muna bago ako makalabas and by that time, I will not miss a single issue.
Enclosed is my write-up on the recent visit by the acting justice secretary. Ma’am, please kindly mail me a copy if this article is printed para siguradong matanggap ko. Kasi pag sa mail ay hindi sila makatanggi na hindi ibigay sa amin.
Till here and may The SUN’s popularity continue to soar until it becomes a weekly. God bless po.

Section Juan clarifies role in ‘Heneral Luna’
I am writing to clarify what had been inaccurately reported in the film review “A Look at Heneral Luna” which was published in the Balitang Artista section of The Sun’s April 2016 main edition. In the closing paragraph, the article stated: “The University of the Philippines Alumni Association Hong Kong chapter organised a screening of ‘Heneral Luna’ at the Consulate on March 5 and 6.”
While we appreciate the eloquence of the article, it is important for the general public to know that the screening at the Philippine Consulate on March 6 was organized by Section Juan, and not UPAA-HK, which was held a day prior.
