Cover of original case filed against Dr. Rizal

"Office of the Secretary of the General Government of the Philippines.

Begun June 21 1892.

Hongkong, June 21, 1892. The Consul (with his signature.) Without fees." These two papers show that the arrest of Rizal was decided on before he left Hongkong, the excuse was trumped up later.
