Nanindigan si Lt General Antonio Parlade na hindi siya hihingi ng paumanhin sa sinabi niya sa aktres na si Liza Soberano. Magugunita na pinayuhan ni Parlade si Soberano na lumayo sa leftist group na Gabriela upang hindi matulad sa nangyari kay Jo Lapira, miyembro ng Gabriela at namatay sa engkuwentro sa militar.
“Let us not red-tag Liza Soberano. It’s not fair to her. She is merely supporting advocacy for women’s rights. She has to be protected in the exercise of her rights. Is she an NPA? No, of course not. Not yet. So let’s help educate her and the other celebrity targets of Malayang Kilusan ng Bagong Kababaihan (MAKIBAKA), the Underground Mass Organization hiding under Gabriela Women’s Party
Liza Soberano, there’ s still a chance to abdicate that group. If you don’t, you will suffer the same fate as Josephine Anne Lapira @ELLA, former Deputy Secretary General of Gabriela Youth of UP, Manila and defender of women’s rights, even against sexual predators amongst her comrades in the NPA unit she joined which is clearly stated in her handwritten letter addressed to a certain @EMIL…
It’s a pity she learned about non sense things like nabbing a firearm, exploitation while already inside the underground. It was too late, she is dead,” sabi ni Parlade.
Ayon pa kay Parlade, nagpasalamat pa raw sa kanya ang pamilya ni Soberano.
“The family thanked me. Atty. Lim thanked me and called me up that they’re sending the thank you letter and he told me that the family is thankful, why should I apologize. Again, I did not red-tag Liza Soberano… In fact, I got a call from Atty. Lim yesterday thanking me and informed me that they’re sending a thank you letter to me for informing them about the nature of this organization and which they don’t want their client to be associated with,” paliwanag ni Lt. General Parlade.
