Journalist file complaint against repression
JOURNALISTS FROM Altermidya, Pinoy Weekly, Kodao Productions and Bulatlat filed a complaint at the Commission on Human Rights on July 30 against National Task Force to End the Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) and Philippine National Police for subjecting them to continuing harassment.
The complaint includes the recent confiscation of thousands of copies of Pinoy Weekly Magazines by the police last July 26 at the office of Kadamay in Villa Lois, Pandi, Bulacan. The police made it appear that the magazines are subversive. A separate complaint was also filed by Bulatlat associate editor Danilo Arao for being implicated in a fabricated “Oust Duterte Matrix” last year.
Activist Rose Fortaleza was arrested during the incident for purportedly disseminating subversive documents. She was brought to a precint and was charged with disobedience to persons in authority.
