Former rebels and cadres of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army-National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF) are slamming Kabataan party-list Rep. Sarah Elago for denying anew her ties with the CPP-NPA-NDF.
“CPP operative Sarah Elago should stop playing the victim. No one will believe her even if she craves for sympathy,” said Jeffrey Celiz, also known as Ka Eric Almendras while with the NPA.
He said no one is red-tagging Elago and the rest of the Makabayan Bloc but former NPA members themselves.
“It is already the former rebels and former cadres who are directly identifying Elago and the CPP-NPA-NDF leaders for the various crimes of their evil conspiracy which these active CPP-NPA-NDF leaders and operatives like Elago continue to perpetuate, especially their complicity and conspiracy with the entire CPP-NPA-NDF party-list groups under what should be aptly tagged Kamatayan Bloc,” Celiz said.
Celiz, along with other former NPA members Joy James “Ka Amihan” Saguino, Daniel “Ka Steven” Castillo, Lady Desiree “Ka Shane” Miranda, Julius “Ka Virgo” Acyatan, and Kurt Russel “Ka Ugnay” Sosa, filed criminal cases against CPP founding chair Jose Marie “Joma” Sison, Elago and other communist terrorist group (CTG) leaders at the Department of Justice (DOJ) on Friday.
Luisa Espina, the mother of missing Polytechnic University of the Philippines Louvaine Erika, also filed raps against Sison, Elago, and their cohorts.
Louvaine Erika was recruited by militant group Anakbayan in 2016 when she was just 16 years old and has been missing since 2018.
They want Sison and other CTG leaders to be held accountable for violations of the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act and the Special Protection of Children Against Abuse, Exploitation, and Discrimination Act.
