FILIPINAS: Nota de prensa del NDFP condena el asesinato de Felix Randy Malayao por esbirros del regimen genocida de Duterte.
PHILIPPINES: On the Brutal Murder of NDFP Consultant Felix Randy Malayao.
We, the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) Negotiating
Panel express our outrage and strongest condemnation on the brutal
murder of Felix Randy Malayao, a publicly known consultant of the NDFP
on political and constitutional reforms.
We condole with Ka Randy’s family, friends, comrades and colleagues as
we give him our highest honor for his invaluable contributions to the
revolutionary movement and the NDFP’s peace efforts.
He participated in the peace talks two years ago and was one of its
spokespersons during the formal negotiations. He was an indefatigable
worker in the service of the people and was ever ready to present the
side of the NDFP in fora, seminars and consultations on the peace talks
in the Philippines and overseas.
Ka Randy was a torture victim and a political prisoner for years under
the Macapagal-Arroyo regime. He had been acquitted of all charges and
was protected by the Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantee
(JASIG) as an NDFP peace consultant.
His killing may very well portent of worse moves against NDFP
consultants for the peace talks many of whom, such as Vic Ladlad, Adel
Silva and Rey Casambre, among others have already been arbitrarily
arrested and slapped with trumped up charges.
From unilateral cancellation by the GRP to the flip-flopping statements
of Duterte on the negotiations, the peace talks have been stalled as the
Duterte government treads the path of all-out war and persistent
attacks against the NDFP and its personnel for the peace negotiations.
Ka Randy’s brazen murder indicates an escalation of attacks against
peace consultants and serves as a further serious obstacle to the
resumption of the peace negotiations with the Duterte government.
The NDFP Negotiating Panel remains committed to the attainment of a just
and last peace in the Philippines through peace negotiations. The
militarist and terrorist government of Duterte, however, is hell-bent in
sabotaging the pursuit for just peace as it intensifies attacks against
the NDFP and enables brazen acts such as the murder of Ka Randy.
The heroes hall of the Philippine revolution welcomes Ka Randy. His
martyrdom and his untiring work will always be remembered and inspire
the struggle against tyranny and for a just peace.
