CAMP AGUINALDO, Quezon City – The Chief of the Armed Forces of the Philippines Human Rights Office (AFPHRO) dismissed the Communist Party of the Philippines’ claims that the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) does not have jurisdiction over the communist groups and cannot act on the submitted destructive incidents committed against civilians by the CPP-NPA-NDF.
Colonel Joel Alejandro Nacnac, Chief of the AFPHRO, also belied the statement of the CPP that they have remunerated victims of atrocities by the terrorist group New People's Army.
"What they are perceiving are far from reality. The victims of their destructive armed struggle decry for justice," Colonel Nacnac said.
"Owners of property destroyed by the NPA do not know where to file complaint for they are not aware of RA9851 and the CHR’s role in assisting them as victims of IHL violations. But this time, victims will be assisted because we already submitted the cases to the CHR. Hindi dapat pangunahan ng CPP ang gagawing imbestigasyon ng CHR. Tinatakot ba nila ang CHR," Col Nacnac added.
