Defense chief tells Palparan: You’re ruining AFP’s image

Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin says fugitive ex-Army Major General Jovito Palparan is destroying the image of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

“He should come out if he did not commit any wrongdoing, and face the music,” Gazmin told reporters during the launch of the “Bayanihan” music video at the Army Officers’ Club on Wednesday afternoon.

During the event, a four-minute video uploaded on YouTube was shown dramatizing the so-called “Army Transformation Road Map” (ATR) prepared by the Philippine Army. The video includes a photograph of protesters railing against Palparan.

“The message there is you don’t smear your own organization. You must surface and prove yourself to be innocent if you are innocent. Right now, he is a fugitive. He is destroying the image of the Armed Forces and not only the Army,” Gazmin said.

Asked if he was issuing a challenge to Palparan to surrender, Gazmin said, “Yes.”

“The Army is going toward a transformation. It is transforming into an organization that is very professional,” Gazmin said.

Palparan disappeared earlier this year after the Bulacan Regional Trial Court issued an arrest warrant for him in connection with the kidnapping of University of the Philippines students Karen Empeño and Sherlyn Cadapan in June 2006.

The tough Army officer, who has been implicated in several alleged extrajudicial killings, has been described by leftist militants as “the butcher.”

In the Arroyo administration, Palparan was called the face of the military’s counterinsurgency program.

Residents say there was peace and quiet in the neighborhood where Palparan used to live but there is now rampant criminality in the area after he went into hiding.

Video

The YouTube video features a young Army soldier and political satirist Mae Paner, aka “Juana Change,” who plays the role of a civilian wary of the military but later realizes the Army’s effort to “transform” itself.

A minute into the video, a photograph of protesters holding a poster of Palparan appears, then an Inquirer headline on the plunder case against retired Major General Carlos Garcia and a picture of Garcia himself.

The photographs are part of a montage of the Army’s alleged sins that make up Paner’s thought bubble in a scene where she is staring at the soldier with anger and fear.

The soldier, reading what’s on Paner’s mind, says to himself: “Unfair ’yan Ma’am. Hindi lahat ganyan. Hindi buong military masama. Sa katunayan marami po sa amin ang tuwid at marangal. (Not all are like that. The entire military is not bad. In truth, many of us are straight and honorable).”

The video, which was launched a few months ago, ends with Paner and the soldier becoming friends.

The “Bayanihan para sa Kapayapaan” music video featuring pop star Sarah Geronimo was also the Army’s way of stepping up its campaign to send the ATR message to the public in addition to calling state enemies to surrender and work for peace.

“So that’s Sarah Geronimo. I only know JLo!” Gazmin said, laughing.

    Good for Gazmin, good for AFP and good for the Philippines. 

    Good job Secretary Gazmin.

    he can surrender after the abn0y presidency. it is obvious that the real reason why palparan has been charged the capital offence of kidnapping is for him not to be able to post bail and rot in jail until his case has been resolved. this is the tactic used by this administration to persecute all gloria’s allies by charging them capital offence so as not to be able to post bail and just to humiliate them. how can you charge the general of the crime kidnapping when his acts even if proven true is merely “illegal detention” which is bailable. if the doj is really after justice palparan should have been charge to the crime of “illegal detention” which is bailable.

      Yes!yes!yes! patatagalin lang ang kaso , walang matibay na ebidensya, di makapag piyansa. kung susuko si Palparan na kakampi ni Arroyo, makakuha kaya siya ng tamang hustisya o puro paghihiganti lang ang aabutin nya. Baka i wheelchair din sya.

  • PutingAgila

    While PALPARAN ruins the image of the AFP, Gazmin could paint a new and better image of the Armed Forces of the Philippines by bringing to justice even it’s own erring members regardless of rank. Capture PALPARAN to reconfigure the damage he has done to the military.

  • dodong1

    Palparan replied ” i am not the only that ruined the image of AFP, there were general’s before me that already ruined the image, and i bet you there are more that are still active duty that continues to ruin the AFP..kaya stop preaching to the crowd and look around you..you do not need to single me out dahil hindi ako nag iisa sa sumira sa AFP.”..

  • EdgarEdgar

    After seeing trumped-up charges after charges filed against GMA only to be dismissed by COA and the Supreme Court, Palaparan has less reason to surface now. Voltaire Gazmin can talk all he wants but talk alone will not improve AFP’s image. Instead of spending too much time in parlors to keep his hair uniformly white, Voltaire should spend more time in the field and get to know his men and their needs. That has a better chance of improving AFP’s image than Palaparan who’s already so demonized and dehumanized by state propaganda and media.

    Palparan had done more for the pinoys than Gazmin. He defended the oppressed against the communists. The ones that destroyed the image of the AFP have not been charged, if charged, have been released. In fact, they were rewarded. How many of them are now holding high positions like senators and other high positions. Gazmin does not know what was and is going on at the AFP. He is just like a figurehead.

    Gen. Palparan was the most feared field commander by the Communist. He won’t face the music today because the government is too oppresive to him because of his affinity to GMA.

    Gen. Palparan, a true,loyal soldier to the constitution, he fought the enemy of the state. now in hiding, the present regime rejected his heroism and instead had him arrested because he was responsible for the dis appearance of UP(enemy of the state) students. Are we now a communist state ? Cory was responsible for the released of JOMA from jail. Delima is a relative to JOMA’s wife. and Ninoy was popularly known as Kumander Dante.

    A Second Brush with Palparan(2005)
    Two of those who were recently killed in Central Luzon have had brushes before with Maj. Gen. Jovito Palparan, the man the victims’ relatives and friends claim as behind the killings.
    The older Rivera, known to friends as Ka Kiko, died when unidentified men on board a white van strafed him and his friends, Dr. Angel David and Von John Maniti, while drinking coffee in a store in front of Rivera’s home in Barangay (village) Pulong Bato, same city.
    BULLET HOLE: Bayan Muna member Francisco Rivera and his friends were shot dead in front of this store in Angeles City, Pampanga. One of the bullets fired made a gaping hole in the wall.            
    All three died on the spot. Ka Kiko sustained nine gunshot wounds, most of which were at the feet and legs.He was one of the five persons murdered in the Central Luzon region in a span of 21 hours, Oct. 25-26.
    The alleged perpetrators, according to Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (New Patriotic Alliance or Bayan), were soldiers belonging to the 7th Infantry Division of the Philippine Army (ID PA) under the command of Maj. Gen. Jovito Palparan.

        Una sa lahat, dapat mo munang ayusin ang linya sa propaganda mo. Halata kasing imbento lang ng isang matayog na imahinasyon ang laman ng comment mo. Hindi pumapatay ang NPA sa mababaw na kadahilanan lang na “ayaw magbigay ng buwis, ayaw umanib o gustong tumiwalag”. Kung totoo yang sinasabi mo malamang matagal nang patay sina Mike Defensor at Rigoberto Tiglao at marami pang iba. Marahil matagal na ring patay ang maraming mga negosyante’t haciendero at malamang takot sana ang mga tao sa NPA. Ang pinapatawan lang ng ganitong parusa ay yun lang mga may malalaking kasalanan at nakagawa ng malalaking pinsala laban sa NPA, sa kilusan nila at sa mga taong sumusuporta dito na ayaw magbago matapos bigyan ito ng sapat na babala.

    Wanted Dead or Alive
    “SHOOT TO KILL”
    JOVITO PALPARAN
    Melissa  Roxas,  a  31-year  old  writer from  Los Angeles, traveled to the Philippines in 2007 to learn more about the country of her birth.One afternoon in late May 2001,  while watching television in a farmer’s home in a village in Tarlac Province, Melissa and two  of  her  companions  were  abducted  by  armed  and hooded men who dragged them into a van without a license plate.For  six  days,  Melissa say,  she was interrogated,  drugged, tortured and smothered to near death, with her interrogators trying  to  force her to admit she was a communist  guerrilla. When the interrogators learned  that  she was  an  American citizen,  she  told  the  committee,  the  torture  lessened. Although she continued to be tortured, her citizenship may have saved Melissa from death. Her captors later dropped her  off  at  a  relative’s  house  in  the  capital.

    Marcellana and Gumanoy were the 28th and 29th victims of summary execution in the province of Oriental Mindoro under the Macapagal-Arroyo government. Witnesses point to the “Bonnet Gang,” a paramilitary group linked with the Philippine Army’s 204th Infantry Battalion of which Col. Jovito Palparan Jr. is the commanding officer. Many of the recent killings in the island were also attributed to the group.The bodies of Marcellana and Gumanoy were found mid-morning April 22 2003 in Bansud, less than 24 hours after they and nine others were abducted.  Five of them, including Marcellana and Gumanoy, were separated from the    group.

      Communism/Socialism is an ideology. It’s not illegal or wrong per se. In fact, there are major European countries that have parliaments dominated by socialist parties.

      On the other hand, criminal activities are illegal and wrong per se, including murder and extortion. AFP and the CPP-NPA, over the past decades, have consistently been accused of these crimes. 

      Now, here we are with the likes of Palparan killing students from one of our best universities, students that represent our future (yes, they appear to have left-leaning backgrounds). How can you wish for a murderer to be president just out of fear/hatred of a simple ideology?

    Ang issue ng human rights ay hindi maaaring ihiwalay sa context ng class struggle sa lipunan. Kahit pa sabihin ng AFP na sinsero at seryuso ito sa pangangalaga ng “human rights”, pero kung ang prinsipal na karakter nito ay nananatiling pagiging isang coercive apparatus ng ruling class upang i-suppress ang lehitimong pakikibaka ng mga mamamayan ay patuloy pa rin ang pagkakaruon ng kaso ng human rights violations na gawa ng state forces. Ang armadong pwersa ay haligi ng estado; ang estado ay makinaryang ginagamit ng mga ruling classes upang panatiliin ang paghahari nito sa lipunan, ang pananatili ng status quo; at hanggang nananatili ang paghaharing ito ng iilan ay nananatili din ang paglaban ng mga mamamayan laban dito. Naipakita na yan sa kasaysayan, naipakita na sa ating karanasan, maaari ninyong bolahin ang inyong mga sarili pero hindi ang bayan.  

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_UN2K2XHKOVVMXAWURS4WJBHVAI David

    Ganito rin ang nangyari noon matapos manalo si Cory. Tinawag pa ang AFP noon na “New Armed Forces of the People” o NAFP. Pero anong nangyari? Mas naging laganap pa ang human rights violations at dumami ang mga death squads.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_UN2K2XHKOVVMXAWURS4WJBHVAI David

        hahahahaha..”yung boss sa Netherlands ang kinakain steak” ??? Ganun? Ang Netherlands ay traditional na kanlungan ng mga political refugees kahit pa noong 15th century. Si Sison, Jalandoni, et al. na political refugees at under sa suporta’t proteksyon ng Dutch government ay tinahasan ng Komite Sentral na doon isagawa ang peace talks–dahil sa pagiging neutral na bansa nito–at upang panguluhan ang internasyunal na pakikibaka ng mga aping bayan laban sa mga imperyalista. Isa rin sa tahas nila ang pagkukuha ng internasyunal na suporta para sa national-democratic movement sa Pilipinas kagaya ng PLO ng mga Palestino. Tumatanggap lamang sina Sison ng tulong pinansyal mula sa Dutch government at nagbibigay ng lecture para suportahan ang sarili, hindi kagaya ng mga black propaganda ninyo na namumuhay ito ng maluho. Sison ay hindi rin boss ng mga komunista dahil ang boss nila ay ang mga uring api. Hindi kagaya ng boss mo na mga kurakot na politiko’t heneral na maraming foreign bank accounts, mansions, luxury cars at limpak-limpak na perang “pabaon”.

    Mabuhay ang bagong AFP.  Maka-bayan, maka-masa at maka-karapatang pantao!!!
     I hope Secretary Voltaire Gazmin continue the good work of bulding a real professional AFP that will become true servants of the Filipino people.  We should have Filipino soldiers who are honest, and respectful of human rights.  It is these bad apples in the AFP that should be rooted out because we cannot win the hearts and minds of the people if our soldiers abuse, rob, kill, torture and maltreat our countrymen.  Remember if you kill or torture one person, your abusive behavior is the best way of discrediting and destroying the AFP and this only helps the enemy in recruiting these people who are disgusted with the abuses of these minority group of bad elements in the AFP.

    Magaling talagang magtago si General Palpakan. No wonder, paborito siya ni GMA noon at kung tutoong maraming takot sa kanya,bakit hindi siya humarap sa batas at patunayan na wala siyang kasalanan.  The disappearance of so many people under his watch must be exposed in court.  Ang problema lang sa Pinas ay puro mga tutulog-tulog ang naghahanap kay Palpakan dahil nasa tabi lang nila ay hindi pa nila makita. Kung susuko o mahuhuli si Palpakan, malaking dagok kay Gloria ito dahil marami itong alam na mga kasalanan ni Gloria.

    “He should come out if he did not commit any wrongdoing, and FACE THE MUSIC,” Gazmin told reporters”

    The call of Gazmin for Palparan to come out and FACE THE MUSIC is a Death Trap.
    If Palparan comes out, he will not Face the Music But he will FACE THE BULLETS.
    Palparan is Dead Man Walking.

  • opinyonlangpo

    What if Palparan was just following the previous admins policy towards grassroot insurgents allied to NPAs, just following orders. What is right then may be wrong now, and what is wrong now may be right in the future administration. Maybe Palparan is just protecting a bigger fish, or size-wise smaller fish.

    What is really the stand of AFP.
    When Palparan was in the forefront of fighting Communist or NPA, the whole AFP  was supporting him.
    He was lauded as hero.
    Now that the administration changed, Palparan is now a villain and a bad image to the AFP.
    Which is which. Just asking.

    Palparan will come out in due time , He is as gentleman as you are !

    I suggest the Defense Dept. should look into this ;

    1. Some of the AFP personnel are the major supplier of weapons and ammunition to NPA and Abu Sayyaf  (try to solve this problem )
    2. avoid buying  hand guns and automatic weapons for the reason stated on 1. ( there is enough hardware for our AFP ) 
    3. for 2013 budget AFP allocation is more than 100 billion ; use this for external defense such as ,.. patrol boats , battleship , attack helicopter , landing boats, fighter jets , artilleries and heavy machine guns  ,.. also beef up our forces in spratly island ( add 2 or 3 battalions ) and fortify our structures ,…. check for the needs of our forces for complement .

    plan to be self reliant and try to start local production of patrol ships .
