Kailangan nang kalampagin ng Department of Justice (DOJ) ang hudikatura upang mabatid kung ano ang kinahantungan ng asuntong tumutukoy sa New People’s Army (NPA) bilang terorista.
Ginawa ni Senador Panfilo Lacson ang panawagan sa ahensiya bunga na rin ng walang humpay na panggugulo ni Communist Party of the Philippines founding chairman Jose Maria Sison sa gobyerno, limang dekada nang nakalipas.
“(CPP founder Jose Maria Sison) has been at it for the past 50 years. So many lives lost already. DOJ should follow up with the court the proscription case vs the NPA as a terrorist group as per Section 2 of Republic Act 9372,” bahagi ng panawagan ni Lacson sa post niya sa kanyang Twitter account.
The Communist Party of the Philippines’ “priority” to oust a sitting President in 2019 should be an added reason to tag the New People’s Army as a terrorist group, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said Thursday.
Lacson said so many lives had already been lost in the 50 years that the CPP and its armed wing, the NPA, had been trying to overthrow the government.

Mr. President, I’m not interpellating on the budget of the Offce of the President. This is just a very quick manifestation and I’d like to take advantage of the presence of Executive Secretary Medialdea. I would like to issue an appeal to him not to endorse the anticipated recommendation of Secretary of DBM Ben Diokno to call for a special session.
Because looking at the schedule, Mr. President, after this agency, the Office of the President, we still have to tackle some big ones. Department of Tourism, Department of Public Works and Highways, Department of Justice – at least the Bureau of Immigration, Commission on Audit, Comelec, Ombudsman, DOH, DND, DILG. And even if the President calls for a special session, even if we extend our session for another five days, for another week, it is impossible, Mr. President, for us to enact the budget bill before the year ends.
So I’d like to again reiterate of course with the concurrence of this body, I’d like to make that appeal. Quoting Jesus Christ: ‘the Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak,’ Mr. President.
Thank you Mr. President, and may we have the commitment of the Executive Secretary… that he will not endorse and he will block, as a matter of fact, Mr. President?
