GPH undermines basic peace agreements, refuses to respect and comply with JASIG

LUIS G. JALANDONI
Chairperson, NDFP Negotiating Panel
31 October 2011

In response to the statement of the Government of the Philippines (GPH) Negotiating Panel, dated 21 October 2011 but sent out only on 24 October 2011, the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) Negotiating Panel states the following:

1. The release of the 13 NDFP Consultants and JASIG (Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantees) protected persons who are now in the custody of the GPH is an obligation of the GPH in compliance with the JASIG. It is not a precondition that is unilaterally imposed by the NDFP. And neither is it a mere confidence-building measure that is one-sidedly subject to the arbitrary exercise and abuse of discretion of the GPH. The unlawful arrest, detention and prosecution of these JASIG-protected persons are blatant violations of the JASIG, the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHRIHL), and the laws of the GPH itself. Their immediate release is being demanded by the NDFP as a matter of legal right, to uphold justice and the rule of law.

We view with the gravest concern the retaliatory acts of the US Aquino regime on the Al-Barka incident where 19 officers and soldiers of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) were killed.

We are one with the Moro people, who are most affected, in condemning these retaliatory moves of a government whose policy is purportedly “all-out justice”.

Communist Party of the Philippines

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) has accused Benigno Aquino III and his top military officials of committing war crimes during an encounter between government troops and NPA guerrillas in Tineg, Abra on October 10.

The CPP said soldiers of the 41st Infantry Battalion led by Cols. Eliseo Posadas and Noel Baluyan violated international humanitarian law and the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHRIHL) when they went ahead and slaughtered the NPA fighters who were overpowered and rendered incapable of fighting. They also peppered with bullets and hacked with machetes the bodies of the fallen NPA fighters.
