GABRIELA condemned the rape of a 21-year old woman by seven soldiers from the 9th IB inside a military camp in Masbate on February 12. The victim has identified the rapists as Cpl. Gilbert Quinito alias “Jeric” and six other elements of Bravo Company based in Barangay Puro, Aroroy, Masbate.

GABRIELA secretary-general Lana Linaban said that the concerned government agencies should immediately investigate this heinous crime. GABRIELA also warned the Armed Forces of the Philippines against intervening in the case to cover up the incident and protect the rapists among its ranks.
