A group of women claiming to be human rights workers from Southern Tagalog aboard a van were arrested in in a police checkpoint Palawan.
One of the women introduced herself as Glendhyl Malabanan, regional staff of Karapatan Southern Tagalog and a human rights worker for 10 years.
Malabanan insisted they were doing human rights work in Palawan investigating alleged human rights violations in the province.
Glendhyl Malabanan claimed the arresting police officers were violating their human rights for detaining them without legal basis.
In addition, the “human rights workers” claimed inviting media personnel to witness their arrest was also in violation of their human rights.
Malabanan claimed they were earlier apprehended in a checkpoint, told they will be brought to the city police headquarter (perhaps in Puerto Prinsesa) that’s why they went with police without resistance.
When they arrived the police station, lights were turned off for no apparent reason and then they boarded the vehicle again and off they were taken for a joyride. Finally, they passed through a second checkpoint. The next thing they knew, they were detained without knowing their violation except all these were attributed to them (pointing to the subversive paraphernalia and grenades laying on the paved road they disowned) which the police claimed they confiscated from the vehicle conveying Malabanan and company.
According to initial report from the FB Page “BUKAS ISIP”, Malabanan’s group were flagged in a PNP checkpoint in San Jose, Taytay Palawan for suspicion they were members of the NPA.
One of the woman companion of Malabanan was a bit hysterical, shouting to the female reporter taking a video at the time of the apprehension to stop what she’s doing, “Stop it Ate. I don’t deserve that!” the companion of Malabanan appealed.
However, Lt. Col. Harold Cabunoc of the Philippine Army claimed that a deep penetration agent of the AFP belied the claim of Gendhyl Malabanan and company were mere human rights workers.
As proof, Cabunoc posted the photos of Malabanan to show that she was lying through her teeth and that she is indeed a regular member of the NPA (New People’s Army).
Cabunco also identified the male companion of Glendhyl Malabanan in the Palawan incident as Domingo Ritas, a notrious NPA leader.
You may read the original article of Lt. Col. Harold Cabunoc below for details.
Nang mahuli sa AFP-PNP checkpoint si Glendhyl Malabanan, kasama ang kilabot ng lider ng teroristang NPA na si Domingo Ritas, agad nagpabebe ang mga front organizations ng CPP-NPA-NDF kagaya ng KARAPATAN, na mga human rights advocates lamang ang naaresto ng tropa.
Pero, ayon sa larawan na nasikwat ng isang deep penetration agent na nasa kanilang hanay, talagang bandidong mandirigma ang kanilang ipinagtanggol na amasona.
Hanggang ngayon, pinipilit ng mga komunista na linlangin ang taumbayan tungkol sa ugnayan ng front organizations at ng teroristang New People’s Army. Gamit ang batas, pinapakasuhan nila ang mga sundalo at pulis tuwing naaresto o kaya ay napapatay silang mga bandido sa mga lehitimong engkwentro. Sa ibang mga probinsya, persona non grata ang turing ng mamamayan sa mga NPA at sa unarmed support component nito kagaya ng KARAPATAN, ALCADEV, MISFI, Abakpawis, at Anakbayan.
Iisa lang ang pakay ng front organizations at ng armadong grupo: Pataubin ang gobyerno at papalitan ng mga komunista na nasa pulitika para maitatag ang diktaduryang komunistang gobyerno sa Pilipinas.
