Who Kills Who?
The Philippine National
Police (PNP) Task Force Usig, this early in the day, has come up with the
conclusion that “purges” within the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP)
may be behind the killings of political activists and supporters of
cause-oriented groups. This “finding” of Task Force Usig glosses over the
motive and circumstances of the killings, which point to the Armed Forces
of the Philippines (AFP) as the most likely perpetrators of political
killings. The speed with which the PNP has arrived at this “analysis” of
the cases puts a cloud of doubt on whether there will be real justice for
the victims of political killings under the Arroyo administration – now
numbering 603 by Karapatan’s records.
Salungguhit literally means to
underline; figuratively, to
underscore or highlight.
