Hontiveros slams termination of UP-DND accord : “I denounce the unilateral termination of the longstanding UP-DND Accord”


The decision of the Department of Nation Defense (DND) through Secretary Delfin Lorenzana is sending the shockwaves from all those who have been the so-called defenders of democracy.

Senator Risa Hontiveros has slammed the decision of the DND to abrogate the agreement which bars the members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and police officers from the Philippine National Police (PNP).

“I denounce the unilateral termination of the longstanding UP-DND Accord,” she said.

“Kung desidido ang administrasyon maghanap ng komunista, pagdiskitahan nila yung mga komunistang lantarang nanghihimasok sa West Philippine Sea,” Hontiveros said.

“Needlessly propping up the ‘communist bogeyman’ has always been an obscene vanity project and an excuse for their red tagging and disregard for basic human rights,” she said.

“The University of the Philippines is a bastion of student activism and its grounds must continue to be a safe space for dissent and peaceful assembly,” she added.

DND’s stand

SND Lorenzana said he found the agreement a “hindrance in providing effective security, safety and welfare of the students, faculty and employees of UP,” as he claimed the Maoist-led rebels have been using the university’s campus grounds as recruiting area for armed guerrillas fighting the government.

“In the pursuit of true national peace and development, it is time to terminate or abrogate the existing agreement with the end view of protecting and securing the institution and the youth against the enemies of the Filipino people without sacrificing the freedoms that we have preserved for about 30 years.”
