AFP spreading baseless speculations about Ka Roger’s situation–CPP
THE Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today dismissed as “purely baseless” the speculations being spread by the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) about the supposed death of CPP spokesperson Gregorio “Ka Roger” Rosal.
“The AFP is obviously just spreading disinformation to the media to fish for fresh leads about Ka Roger’s present location and situation, in a desperate bid to monitor his movements and whereabouts,” said the CPP in a statement.
“It is outrightly hypocritical for the AFP to assure Ka Roger’s safety, when his family and friends have been the subject of continual surveillance and military operations for the past 15 years,” said the CPP.
The CPP noted that AFP surveillance of Ka Roger’s family and friends has recently intensified.
“In bringing up the situation of Ka Roger and purportedly offering assistance, the AFP is also trying to deflect issues and denunciations of its continuing fascist operations, the almost weekly extrajudicial killings perpetrated by its death squads, and its widespread violations of human rights.”
