Joma In Dutch Jail

Self-exiled communist leader Jose Maria "Joma" Sison will remain in prison in the Netherlands for two more weeks in connection with the murders in the Philippines of his former associates Kintanar and Tabara.
Sison founded the Communist Party of the Philippines in 1968.
He was arrested by former dictator Marcos and released in 1986 by the government of Cory Aquino. He fled to the Netherlands in 1987.
