Propaganda article from the English language edition of the CPP online publication Ang Bayan (Jun 21, 2019): CPP welcomes call for UNHRC investigation
The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) welcomed the call of the United Nations Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) to conduct an investigation into the worsening human rights situation in the country under the Duterte regime.
Aside from widespread killings, state security forces also perpetrated various cases of illegal arrests, filing of trumped-up charges, legal harassment, threats, armed raids of communities, hamletting and occupation of rural villages, food and economic blockade, and so.
It stated that the investigation must subject to critical inquiry both Duterte’s drug war, as well as his counterinsurgency directive “to end local communist armed conflict” and its various components including Mindanao martial law, Memorandum Order 30, Oplan Kapayapaan, Oplan Sauron and Oplan Kapanatagan. These grave crimes must indeed be investigated, exposed and condemned. The Filipino people’s clamor for justice must be made known across the world, concluded the CPP.
