MANILA, Philippines – Pumalag ang Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) sa pagbanggit ng Makabayan Bloc sa Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Laws (CARHRIHL) sa landmine attack sa Masbate.

“RA 9851 is the correct legal platform where the families of victims and our government can assert and exact accountability and get justice. CARHRIHL is just an agreement, this is a law,” giit ni DILG Undersecretary Jonathan Malaya.

Ani Malaya na mas mabisa ang RA 9851.

Matatandaang inangkin ng rebeldeng grupo ang insidente kung saan nasawi sina college football player Kieth Absalon at pinsan nitong si Nolven.

Una nang umalma si Malaya sa Makabayan matapos hikayatin ang pamilya Absalon na maghain ng reklamo sa Joint Monitoring Committee (JMC).

“The JMC does not exist. Period. And even if it did, it had no investigative nor prosecutorial powers. It can only request for investigation to the concerned party,” punto ng opisyal.

Dagdag nito na hindi rin nirerespeto ng CPP-NPA ang CARHRIHL sa paggamit nito ng command-donated at contact-detonated landmines.

“CARHRIHL clearly prohibits the use of land mines against people especially civilians and yet the Makabayan Bloc wants the family to use this very same agreement to bring the perpetrators to justice,” ani Malaya.

“There is no rhyme nor logic.” RNT/ELM
