EconomyEditor's PickCongressmen oppose religious group’s indictment

September 20, 2022

SEVERAL lawmakers on Tuesday filed a resolution asking the Commission on Human Rights to condemn the state’s terrorist-financing charges against members of a religious group. 

House Resolution 393 called on the agency to issue a condemnation against the Department of Justice’s (DoJ) indictment of nuns and other staff of the Rural Missionaries of the Philippines. 

Party-list Representatives. Arlene D. Brosas, France L. Castro and Raoul Danniel A. Manuel, who filed the resolution, said the charges had been trumped up. 

Last month, DoJ charged 16 members of the religious group for allegedly funding the Communist Party of the Philippines and its armed wing, the New People’s Army. 

The Anti-Terrorism Council has labeled the communist party as a terrorist organization. — Matthew Carl L. Montecillo
