CPP-NPA commit human rights violations
Davao City (17 October) -- The recent bombings perpetrated by terrorists and killings by the Communist Terrorists (CTs) of AFP and PNP personnel as well as civilians showed human rights violation to its fullest. Many people have been affected by their dire doings. Most of them are suffering and even lost their lives and property to include innocent lives of children due to their evil acts that only brought chaos and havoc. Affected families have been internally displaced and cannot restore their once normal lives.
The CPP/NPAs and other threat groups have been restless in spreading fear in the minds of the people who have stood against them or refused to give in to their terroristic activities. Many vital installations and establishments have been damaged and hampered. The normal operations of businesses and other economic entities are disrupted.
The self-proclaimed champion of the masses cannot deny that all those pronouncements are just for show but the reality remains that consideration for human rights is never and will never be a concern of the CPP/NPA in their pursuit to overthrow whatever government is in power.
The most recent violation of human rights committed by the CT's happened last 11 October 2006 when ten (10) CT members, led by a certain Commander Tiyoy (TN: Leo Hernane) abducted one Jefrey Basaca of Bgy. Tagdangua, Pantukan, Comval Province. Initial investigation disclosed that the victim was forced by the CT's into a white Van and headed towards Tagum City.
