Statement of the Government of the Philippines peace panel in talks with the Communist Party of the Philippines/New People’s Army/National Democratic Front on the arrest of retired Major General Jovito Palparan Jr.
Posted on Tuesday, Aug 12th, 2014
The government peace panel for the negotiations with the Communist Party of the Philippines/New People’s Army/National Democratic Front welcomes the arrest of retired Major General Jovito Palparan Jr., today, International Humanitarian Law Day.
The arrest is a triumph of law enforcement and the Philippine justice system. Although it has taken three years to capture him, the apprehension of Palparan demonstrates the determination of the State to enforce the rule of law and negate any assertion that this administration tolerates impunity.
This should encourage us to trust that our democratic institutions are working vigorously and conscientiously to uphold human rights and protect every Filipino from the abuse of power and authority.
