Police arrested without warrant this morning an organizer for the leftist Bayan Muna party-list organization, according to the office of Rep. Joel Virador.
Jesi Carandang was in a jeep with residents of Onyx in Sta. Ana, Manila to join the rally in Ayala when he was arrested. No case was filed against him but he was detained at Dagonoy Precint 1 in Onyx, Sta. Ana. He was only released when Virador insisted that the arrest has no basis. Virador described the incident as a harassment of anti-Arroyo protest organizers.
