NTF-ELCAC Officers, Mocha Uson Sued Over Red-tagging

Karapatan Secretary General Cristina Palabay filed criminal and administrative complaints against three ranking members of the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict over their continuous red-tagging — the practice of labeling dissenters and activists as rebels, terrorists or enemies of the state.

Palabay, through the National Union of Peoples’ Lawyers, accused National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon, Lieutenant General Antonio Parlade Jr. and Communications Undersecretary Lorraine Badoy of violating the international and domestic humanitarian law for their repeated red-tagging.

Also named as respondent is Overseas Workers Welfare Administration Undersecretary Mocha Uson.

Palabay, who filed the complaint at the Office of the Ombudsman, also said red-tagging constitutes a violation of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act, adding the accusations cause undue injury to her and her colleagues from Karapatan.
