In his counter-affidavit, Ladlad asked the DOJ panel to exclude the affidavit of Fuentes for “failure to disclose his true identity to the respondents” and all “so-called evidence which are incompetent, irrelevant, immaterial and hearsay.” He also moved to drop the case.
Fuentes removed his hat and sunglasses before the Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecuting panel last March 23. When television cameras showed the footage of Fuentes removing his disguise, Karapatan-ST volunteers immediately recognized him as “Omar”.
“Kumpirmadong siya nga (si Omar). Paano namin makakalimutan ‘yung ginawa niya sa amin noon?” Fernandez said. (It is confirmed that he is Omar. How can we forget what he did to us?)
Though the human rights group plans to return to Mulanay this week to resume the mission, he said no one wants to see Omar again. (Bulatlat.com)
