NUPL on Palparan’s statement that charges were illegally filed

On the statement made by Ret. Maj. Gen. Jovito Palparan through lawyer Atty. Jesus Santos — whose authority to represent the retired general is suspect — that the filing of the cases against him was done illegally, the National Union of Peoples’ Lawyers (NUPL), private prosecutor of the Cadapan and Empeno families, through its Secretary General Atty. Edre Olalia said:

General Palparan has the gall and temerity to claim that the charges against him were done illegally. That is farthest from the truth. He is turning things upside down.

It’s the height of hypocrisy to wrongly claim that he is the victim while he is known to have routinely and cavalierly deprived many of their basic rights as human beings when they were summarily killed, disappeared and tortured.

The mothers of the two University of the Philippines (UP) students went by the book and are enduring the tedious and even frustrating process to hold him accountable. His credibility is so low that his every word is suspect.

Come out of your putrid sewage hole and see the light. Join your avid fan former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in jail. Stop putting your attorneys on the spot to take the fall for you even as they trifle with the emotions of the suffering mothers by recklessly springing bare claims their young and abused daughters are still alive.”

Atty. Edre U. Olalia, 0917-511-3373
NUPL Secretary General,
