MANILA, Philippines — The sister of actress and philanthropist Angel Locsin was again accused of being a member of the New People’s Army, this time by an alleged former rebel.

“Gen Parlade is not lying. Ella Colmenares, the sister of Angel Locsin. was an NPA in Quezon, na-meet ko siya,” Jeffrey Celis, aka Ka Eric said during the Senate hearing on the alleged red-tagging activities of military officials.

Celis was referring to Armed Forces of the Philippines Southern Luzon Command chief Lt. Gen. Antonio Parlade Jr.

“Si Ella Colmenares, umalis ‘yan ‘di na siya mapipigilan so bumalik siya sa open mass movement pero CPP pa rin siya, she’s operating underground at alam ko nasa MAKIBAKA (Malayang Kilusan ng Bagong Kababaihan) siya sa Gabriela,” Celiz added.
