Army denies hand in Red-tagging of journos
CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – The Philippine Army’s 4th Infantry Division (4ID) has denied anew it has a hand in the Red-tagging of two journalists based here.
“We don’t do that because in the first place, we gain nothing from it,” said Brig. Gen. Franco Nemesio Gacal, 4ID commander, at a dialogue between the military and the local chapter of the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) on Wednesday, Sept. 4.
Journalists Cong Corrales, associate editor of Mindanao Gold Star Daily, and Froilan Gallardo, who writes for MindaNews and Philippine Daily Inquirer, were recently accused of having ties with the communist New People’s Army (NPA)./TSB
