AJLPP Express Dismay On Cardinal Rosales’ Statements Against Human Rights

AJLPP-New York | The Alliance for a Just and Lasting Peace in the Philippines (AJLPP) based in the United States express its utmost dismay when they heard that Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales of the Catholic Church in the Philippines blamed both the US-Arroyo regime and the revolutionary forces in the Philippines as guilty of extrajudicial killings, enforced disappearances, and frustrated assassinations of hundreds upon hundreds of Filipinos.

Mario Santos, AJLPP National Corodinator stated that: "We were furthered alarmed and dismayed when he (Rosales )called these political killings as “gatingga (Tagalog for a “mere speck”.)

We found this statement as profane, gross and revolting as the abuses of the Catholic Church in the United States that they tried to cover up and now that are trying to pay. What Manila Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales implied that military forces could engage in the aforesaid human rights violations on the false assumption that their revolutionary opponents do likewise is so unwise and unjust.

Hicks’ (now) disqualified lawyers accused the presiding judge, Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Coleman of making up the rules as he went along – there is nothing new in the ‘legal’ proceedings at Guantanamo Bay! more...  0 Comments
