Read the Complete Statement of Atty. Trixie Cruz Angeles:

Nuong August 1, nag file ang PNP-CIDG sa DOJ ng mga reklamo for violations of the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act; the Act providing for Special Protection of Children in Situations of Armed Conflict; the Revised Penal Code provision on kidnapping; the Special Protection of Children Against Child Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination Act; and the Philippine Act on Crimes Against International Humanitarian Law, Genocide and Other Crimes Against Humanity.

Four days ago, nag issue ng subpoena ang DOJ kina Nery Colmenares, Sara Elago at Tom Villarin. Pinangalanan din sa subpoena sina Charlie del Rosario, Bianca Gacos, Jayroven Villafuente Balais, Vencer Crisostomo, and Einstein Recedes.




Si Crisostomo, Anakbayan chairperson. Si Recedes, Anakbayan secretary general.

At kahapon nag issue ng statement sina Colmenares inaakusahan ang PNP-CIDG ng pagimbento ng charges laban sa kanila. Ika nila, wala naman daw ebidensya na involved sila duon.

Ang nag reklamo, yung ina ni Alicia Lucena, at isqng rebel returnee.

Ano ang Trafficking of Persons?

Ang batas na ito originally nagpupuntirya ng mga nagrerecruit sa paraan ng panlilinlang, ng mga tao na kadalasan nagiging prostitute o alila. Nguni’t dinagdagan ito ng batas para masakop ang pag recruit ng mga sasali sa armadong aklasan.

Mabigat ang penalty nito, 20 years imprisonment at fine ng 1million pesos.

Masasama ba ito sa RA 10592? Posibleng hndi kasi, special law po ito at di governed ng Revised Penal Code except suppletorily.
