Iginiit ni Senator Panfilo Lacson na mayroon siyang alinlangan sa draft report ng Senate committee sa panel draft report ng national defense and security tungkol sa red-tagging makaraang makita ang ilang inconsistencies sa listahan ng Armed Forces of the Philippines sa mga estudyanteng lumahok sa New People’s Army.
“Yung draft namin doon sa committee report is almost finished. Now, I’m having second thoughts and I have to review it again and ask the military to validate further the presentations that they made in this regard,” saad ni Lacson, chair ng panel.
“Kasi nga they based their decision in suspending or terminating ‘yung UP-DND accord on what appears now to be false information. They included personalities na sinabing captured or killed in action by the military, ‘yun pala nandyan buhay at hindi naman pala na-capture at all,” punto pa nito.
Maaalalang buwan ng Nobyembre at Disyembre nang magsagawa ng mga pagdinig sa umano’y red-tagging sa ilang indibidwal.
Para kay Lacson, ang ilang inconsistency sa inilabas na listahan ng AFP Information Exchange Facebook ay “reason enough for the committee to take a second look at the presentations and the testimonies that the military or their witnesses made during the two-day red-tagging hearing.”
“I think it is prudent now for Secretary Lorenzana to at least suspend the termination of the UP-DND accord and hold a dialogue… in the meantime mas maganda munang i-suspend ang termination ng UP-DND accord and go back to the drawing baord, hold a dialogues, and thresh out differences between UP, PUP, and the DND establishment,” lahad pa ni Lacson.
