Philippines: Court drops terrorist tagging case vs. UN rapporteur on rights of indigenous peoples; 3 others also cleared
Author: Lian Buan, Rappler, Published on: 8 August 2018
"Manila court clears 4 in DOJ's terror tag request," 08 August 2018
The Manila Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 19 cleared Satur Ocampo, Rafael Baylosis, Jose Melencio Molintas, and United Nations (UN) Special Rapporteur Victoria Tauli-Corpuz from the government petition seeking to declare them and hundreds of others as terrorists.
But Branch 19 Judge Marlo Magdoza-Malagar will proceed with the main content of the petition that seeks to declare the organization Communist Party of the Philippines–New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) a terror group...
The 4 who were cleared were among the 649 names that the Department of Justice (DOJ) submitted to the court as alleged members or leaders of the CPP-NPA who should be declared as terrorists alongside the organization itself.
Despite this, the tagging of the 4 as terrorists "has already put their lives and security at risk."
