Ping Lacson slams Legarda for for saying that the CPP/NPA/NDF is “not an enemy of the State.”


Below is the statement of former senator Panfilo Lacson as against the statement made by Senate President Pro Tempore Loren Legarda for saying that the Communist Party of the Philippines/New People’s Army/New Democratic Front (CPP/NPA/NDF) is “not an enemy of the State.”



I could not agree more with the statement of the NTF-ELCAC.

Sen Legarda is a friend and I respect her opinion but I cannot for the life of me agree with her stand, apparently articulated by her statement that the CPP-NPA-NDF is not an enemy of the state. Simply put, an armed terrorist group —already designated not only by the government of the Republic of the Philippines but also by the European Union, the United States of America and four other countries (Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand)—is unequivocally an enemy of the state.


That being said, any attempt to amend the Anti-Terrorism Act is a disrespect to our comrades-in-arms as well as the countless civilians who fell victims to the atrocities of this terrorist group that has lost its ideological principles over the years - they murder, they rob, they extort, they harass and intimidate and worse, indiscriminately.


Having authored and sponsored and almost single-handedly defended the legislative measure in the Senate plenary, as well as in the battle for public opinion in many fora including the media, I will not hesitate to be part of the opposition to thwart moves to amend this law in its substantive form which no less than the Supreme Court has declared as constitutional.
