Brieffreundschaften mit politischen Gefangenen: Ella ist frei

Dear Medy, Ella and Pido,
These are really great news! 🙂
The ongoing protest has been successful!!
It is good that Ella can stay with you.
Hopefully, the test results will be negative.
We do not have mass testing in Germany, I assume they want to save the costs.
Bye,
Julia

Dear  Julia and Mia,
Warmest greetings!
I have very good news — Ella is free.  She was released from the Correctional Institution for Women yesterday.  Ella and I said: “we must tell Julia and mia at once.  They will be so happy to learn the good news.”  I also told Ella about the Balikbayan Box you sent and the letter and book for her.inside the box.  Ella is here and she wants to say to you — THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND FRIENDSHIP!  Ella says she will continue to write you when she is in her new place.
We in Metro Manila are still under lockdown because of covid-19  and so no one is allowed to travel coming in to and going out of Metro Manila.  Ella cannot travel to her family (they live in the Southern Tagalog region).  In the meantime, Ella will stay in our house in the corner.  I informed the barangay officials about this.  Tomorrow there will be mass testing for the virus here in the barangay. and maybe Ella will also be tested.
So until here and warmest regards from
Ella, Pido and Medy
