INQUIRER.net stands by its journo
INQUIRER.net continues to recognize the role our valiant men and women in the armed forces play in protecting our country. But we condemn the threat of Lt. Gen. Antonio Parlade Jr. to sue our reporter Tetch Torres-Tupas for her report on the petition filed at the Supreme Court entitled “Tortured Aetas seek SC help against anti-terror law.” In the Facebook post of Parlade on Feb. 3, 2021, he accused our reporter as a propagandist.
INQUIRER.net takes vigorous exception to the apparent red-tagging of our reporter and expresses alarm over Parlade’s attempt to sow fear, stifle dissent and curtail her right to make truthful and objective reports. We unequivocally support our reporter and uphold her integrity.
