Chapter 36:

Ben-Zayb’s Afflictions

(The Summary of “El Filibusterismo”)

The Governor-General prohibits any mention of the events that have taken place at the wedding fiesta of Juanito Pelaez and Paulita Gomez.  News circulates that a band of tulisanes have attacked a friar country house. The robbers who are caught describe a Spanish mestizo as the one who ordered them to attack the city at a designated signal.  The description given by the robbers perfectly fits Simoun.
