Despite an exhaustive online search of articles, e-library databases and websites, no mention of Reynaldo Arado can be found other than the lone mention of him in the Freedom Memorial’s Roll of Victims.[1] It is to be noted that Google’s search engine allows results to be displayed if even a single keyword (Reynaldo, Rey, Arado, etc.) hits when searched. The keywords were used alongside other relevant words (Martial Law, Marcos, human rights, etc.) but yielded no results other than the aforementioned page. Variations of spelling were likewise taken into consideration when searching up the name (Reynato, Reynado, Renaldo, Renato, etc.) but no results came up. All available books were checked to no avail as well.

Given the current situation of the country as Filipinos face the COVID-19 pandemic, conducting research, accessing sources and visiting archives have been made more difficult. At this time, it is not possible to construct a satisfactory profile on Arado that will do him justice. This profile will be updated as more sources become available. Nevertheless, Reynaldo Arado is given recognition as one of the motu proprio victims of the Martial Law period.
