Sa kasagsagan ng isyu tungkol sa red-tagging ay nagsampa ng kaso ang dalawang babaeng pinagsamantalahan ng kumander ng New People’s Army (NPA).
Nanawagan naman si Lt. General Antonio Parlade sa leftist / women rights group na Gabriela na kundinahin ang kahayupan ng nasabing kumander. Ayon kay Parlade, nagmamakawa siya sa mga opisyal ng Gabriel na magsalita laban sa NPA lider upang mawala na ang isyu tungol sa red-tagging.
“Gabriela & Gabriela Youth: Here are Other Two (2) Female Minor Raped Victims of the CPP NPA Commanders who needs your help.
“To Representative Arlene Brosas and Emmi de Jesus, Gabriela Youth and Gabriela:
You say you don’t support violence and that you advocate protection of women and children’s rights.
Two (2) more girls, the Correa siblings Realyn @Shane/Zian who was just 15 years old when she was raped by CPP – NPA Commanders together with her elder sister Ruffa @Eniel/Roselyn have come forward to tell their stories about how they were raped and molested while in the ranks of the CPP NPA in Leyte. Will you come forward too, to denounce these vicious CPP NPAs and defend these minors?
I beg you (I’m not threatening), please do. Then maybe all these issues on you being red-tagged by Jose Maria Sison will be over.” – Lt. Gen. Parlade
Narito naman ang reaksyon ng ilang kababayan natin sa social media post ng army official.
“Abolish the partylist system, that marginalized sector representive bulls*** is being used by the communist to infiltrate government and create lack of agreement or harmony in the bureaucracy.” – C. Guarin
“Time to stop these communists masquerading as “makabayans” and also time to get rid of party lists.” – R. Famorcan-Fernandes
“Tiyak kong di nila ga2win yon. Kung yong pagkondina in public/social media sa mga ATROCITIES COMMITED BY CPP NPA NDF ay di nga nila magawa, yan pa kaya? Ga2wa at ga2wa ng alibi ang mga yan para iwas pusoy.” – S. Medenilla
