“They assigned me a fairly furnished room with a bed, a dozen chairs, one table, a wash basin, and a mirror. The room had three windows: one without a grill which opened on a patio, another with a grill which looked out on the city walls and the beach and another which was the door closed with a padlock. Two artillery men guarded it as sentinels. They had orders to fire on anyone who might signal from the beach. I could not write nor speak with anyone except the officer on duty.”

THE ARBITRARY DEPORTATION TO DAPITAN

1. Rizal had published books and articles abroad which showed disloyalty to Spain and which were “frankly anti-Catholic” and “imprudently anti-friar”.
2. A few hours after his arrival in Manila “there was found in one of the packages a bundle of handbills entitled
in which the patient and humble generosity of the Filipinos is satirized, and in which accusation is published against the customs of the religious orders”
3. His novel El Filibusterismo was dedicated to the memory of the three “traitors” (GomBurZa), and on the title page he wrote that in view of the vices and errors of the Spanish administration, “the only salvation for the Philippines was separation from the mother country”.
4. “The end of which he pursues in his efforts and writings is to tear from the loyal Filipino breasts the treasures of our holy Catholic Faith”.
