“TFDP CALLS FOR FAIR, IMPARTIAL AND SPEEDY DISPOSITION OF MR. TULAWIE’S CASE”

 

Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP), is calling for fair, impartial and speedy disposition of the case of Mr. Temogen “Cocoy” Tulawie. He was arrested on January 13,2012 at 11:45 in the evening by combined elements of Military Intelligence Group (MIG), Region 9, Special Action Force (SAF)and Police Intelligence (R2), in Catalunan Grande, Davao City.

 

TFDP, supports Mr. Tulawie in his quest for justice not only for himself but for all the people of Sulu province whose rights were violated. Being a human rights defender, it is his conviction to both God and the people to act against the human rights violations that endanger his life and that of his family.

 

Mr. Tulawie has an impressive record in human rights defense and promotion. He is the former provincial chairperson of the Consortium of Bangsamoro Civil Society (CBCS), a coalition of Bangsamoro civil society organizations (CSOs) within the province of Sulu. His works involves monitoring and documentation of cases of human rights violations affecting Muslim communities in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), especially in the province of Sulu.

 

The United Nations Declaration on Human Rights Defenders, adopted in 1998, enumerated some rights and protection accorded to human rights defenders, among others; to seek the protection and realization of human rights at the national and international level and to make complaints about official policies and acts relating to human rights and to have such complaints reviewed.

 

Under this declaration, the state is bound with the duties to protect, promote and implement human rights and to provide an effective remedy for persons who claim to have been victims of human rights violations.

 

With these safeguards, TFDP is certain that Mr. Tulawie will be afforded with impartiality by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the court will hear his case without prejudice considering that his private complainant is a prominent Governor of Sulu.

 

Uphold his integrity as a human rights defender!

TFDP GA Statement of Support for PALEA

We, delegates and participants of the 16th National General Assembly of the Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP), in renewing our commitment to human rights, particularly to its universality, as originally conceived in its establishment in 1974 by the Association of the Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines (AMRSP), unequivocably support the struggle of the Philippine Air Lines Employees Association (PALEA) for their right to full human development and a quality of life worthy of their dignity.

PAL’s plan to terminate more than 2,600 employees affecting three departments, which PAL labels as “non-core”, was based on the pretext of that “It was motivated by a pressing need to prevent further financial drain and thus, save PAL from eventual collapse.”  And that such a move“is necessary for to this very day, PAL’s economic downturn continues to threaten its survival.”

Beinte Singko-Festival of memories: Sr. Mariani Dimaranan, sfic

Sr_Mariani_smallOn September 21, 1972, President Ferdinand Marcos declared Martial Law. It was his way of quelling the rising tide of protest against the inequitable economic policy of his administration: “The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.”

Faced by this worsening threat to the life and existence of the multitude of Filipinos, the Biblical passage- “You cannot serve two masters at one and the same time… God and Money…”- must have plucked a main chord in the heart of Sr. Mariani Dimaranan, a religious Sister of the Franciscans of the Immaculate Conception (SFIC).

Her zeal for the Creator who created all peoples – men and women – in their Creator’s image knew no bounds. And mindful of the danger of her own life, she rose to defend and uphold the rights of all peoples.

Logo2_copy_smallChallenged by the galloping spread of human rights violations, the Association of Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines (AMRSP) established the Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP). Acknowledging Sr. Mariani’s evangelical option for the poor, the AMRSP fittingly recognized her as the TFDP Chairperson from April, 1974 to September, 1996.

Rising to her leadership role in the TFDP, Sr. Mariani very soon became identified synonymously with TFDP and a symbol of the collective courage of people who bravely stood for human rights and resisted state terrorism.

[Excerpts from the Foreword of Bishop Julio X. Labayen, O.C.D., D.D., Chairperson of TFDP Board of Trustees, in the book “Mariani, a woman of a kind” Published by TFDP in December 2002]
