Surface NDF Consultant Rudy Calubad
The Southern Luzon
Command (SOLCOM) of the AFP has yet to face the consequences of its
continued denial of the illegal arrest of NDF consultant Rogelio "Rudy"
Calubad. He was arrested by elements of the SOLCOM and ISAFP last June 17
in Calaug, Quezon province. He was abducted and taken by the military,
together with his 29 year old son. To this day, Calubad and son are still
SOLCOM chief commanding officer General Pedro Cabuay still denies the
irresponsible deeds of his troops. Witnesses strongly condemn the forceful
illegal arrest and abduction. All circumstances are pointing to SOLCOM
and ISAFP elements as perpetrators.
His family drowns in pain as they are haunted by nightmares. Images of
torture and possible execution are too much to bear for his family and
friends, while SOLCOM officials denies the abduction.
Why does General Cabuay condone his troops to abduct NDF leaders? Why does
he ignore the continued disappearance of an NDF personality? Why are they
afraid to surface Calubad? Is it because the NDF consultant is in a very
bad state because of physical abuse and torture he had suffered in the
hands of the military? Are Calubad's bruises too much to show to the media
and the public?
