Brandon LeeChinese American and former San Franciscan Brandon Lee, marked an enemy of the state by the Philippine government, says this accusation is false, as he is there only as a humanitarian worker.

A member of the League of Filipino Students, an organization dedicated to helping the poor of the Philippines, Lee became heavily involved in community work in the Philippines after attending San Francisco State University. According to ABS-CBN News, the Philippine military has connected Lee to the rebel group New People’s Army.

Supporters claim that these allegations were made to justify illegal arrests..

“These allegations are false. I think it deliberately means to silence the community work we do and at the same time it attempts to condition the minds of the people to legitimize surveillance which leads to human rights violations,” Lee said.

You can read why Lee fears for his family’s safety in  ABS-CBN news.
