The visitors are Yehlen Chiu Agus, agent with the National Bureau of Investigation; Girlie Gay Sequino Sanado, an officer of the Philippine National Police; and Jerome Aguila Alcantara, head of the resource center of the Visayan Forum Foundation Inc., which provides reintegration programs benefiting trafficking victims.
George Edwards, international human rights law expert at the law school and the school's Program in International Human Rights Law are hosting the event, which is sponsored by the U.S. State Department as part of its Countering Trafficking in Persons project in the Philippines.

The three are in Indiana as part of the State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program. The visit is from 3 to 4 p.m. in Room 267 of Inlow Hall, 530 W. New York St., Indianapolis.

  1. Why in the world would someone need a person to correct a transcript when a realtime court reporter could provide them with a transcript (rough draft) immediately?

  2. This article proved very enlightening. Right ahead of sitting the LSAT for the first time, I felt a sense of relief that a score of 141 was admitted to an Indiana Law School and did well under unique circumstances. While my GPA is currently 3.91 I fear standardized testing and hope that I too will get a good enough grade for acceptance here at home. Thanks so much for this informative post.

  3. No, Ron Drake is not running against incumbent Larry Bucshon. That’s totally wrong; and destructively misleading to say anything like that. All political candidates, including me in the 8th district, are facing voters, not incumbents. You should not firewall away any of voters’ options. We need them all now more than ever. Right? Y’all have for decades given the Ds and Rs free 24/7/365 coverage of taxpayer-supported promotion at the expense of all alternatives. That’s plenty of head-start, money-in-the-pocket advantage for parties and people that don’t need any more free immunities, powers, privileges and money denied all others. Now it’s time to play fair and let voters know that there are, in fact, options. Much, much better, and not-corrupt options. Liberty or Bust!

  4. A great idea! There is absolutely no need to incarcerate HRC's so-called "super predators" now that they can be adequately supervised on the streets by the BLM czars.

  5. One of the only qualms I have with this article is in the first paragraph, that heroin use is especially dangerous because it is highly addictive. All opioids are highly addictive. It is why, after becoming addicted to pain medications prescribed by their doctors for various reasons, people resort to heroin. There is a much deeper issue at play, and no drug use should be taken lightly in this category.
