Palparan ‘homecoming’ shows arrest was staged
Jovito Palparan’s transfer to military HQ is “daang matuwid-style” VIP treatment for human rights violators. This homecoming is a grave insult to the families of the victims of extrajudicial killings, human rights abuse, torture and disappearances.
This shows that the “arrest” of Palparan was only a show staged to salvage President Aquino’s popularity. The script: Palparan was to be arrested only to be taken home again under the special care of his fascist gang. Mr. Aquino should be held accountable for coddling Palparan and continuing the fascist rampage against the people under his Oplan Bayanihan.
