The National Task Force to End Local Communist and Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) on Saturday warned members of the Supreme Court Employees Association (SCEA) and Judiciary Employees Association (JEA) about possible communist infiltration within their ranks.
Presidential Communications Undersecretary and NTF-ELCAC spokesperson Lorraine Badoy explicitly named SCEA president Erwin Ocson and Sandigan ng mga Empleyadong Nagkakaisa sa Adhikain ng Demokratikong Organisasyon (S.E.N.A.D.O.) president Rosel Eugenio as Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army-National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF) operatives.
Badoy said the two are running the government unions to help the CPP Central Committee and its founding chair, Jose Maria “Joma” Sison, suppress the bureaucracy.
She said it is part of Sison’s plans to destroy the country’s democracy and push a shift to communism.
“I know it is a shocking revelation from the NTF-ELCAC. You thought you already knew Ocson, that he’s with you and you trust him,” Badoy said in Filipino.
She noted that the communist groups and their allies are planning to overthrow the government by penetrating the operations of workers’ unions.
In her previous statement, Badoy said the labor group Confederation for Unity, Recognition, and Advancement of Government Employees (COURAGE) is a recruitment agency of the CPP-NPA-NDF
“Eugenio and Ocson are leaders of COURAGE and leaders as well of the underground illegal organization linked to it, which is the Makabayang Kawaning Pilipino or MKP that advances, supports, colludes, conspires, collaborates in the overthrow of government via armed terrorism of the CPP-NPA-NDF,” she said.
Badoy said Ocson’s “spurious” public service and refusal to condemn the atrocities committed by the CPP-NPA-NDF is a clear validation that his loyalty belongs to the communist groups.
“In other words, Ocson is using all of you,” Badoy told the government unions.
She further disclosed that part of the monthly dues of SCEA and JEA members are redirected to the funds of COURAGE.
“If you ask for a clear accounting, you will know the distressing truth that the money you have worked for, the money from our countrymen, is being used to destroy our country,” Badoy added. SOVEREIGNPH
