Eduardo Ano does not know what he is talking about. He just wants to do empty-headed psywar to disinform the public. He does not understand how as a recognized I am well protected by the Geneva Refugee Convention and by the European Convention on Human Rights whose Article 3 give me absolute protection from being put at any risk of being subjected to torture and other inhumane and cruel treatment.
The current false charge against me is far more baseless and ridiculous than previous false charges made against me. When the fake Inopacan massacre was supposed to have occurred in 1985, I was under maximum security detention and had no authority whatsoever in the CPP or NPA. As soon as I was arrested in 1977, I lost my position in the CPP and was held under maximum security detention by the military.
In the entire European Union and entire world, the Duterte regime is notorious as a murderous violator of human rights. The people of the world know how much the Filipino people detest the regime as tyrannical, treasonous, murderous, corrupt and deceptive. The whole world knows that the regime red tags, frames up and kills people with impunity. The Dutch government and EU will not violate international law just to accommodate a tyrant and mass murderer like Duterte.
PH asks EU to revoke Joma’s refugee status

MANILA, Philippines — The government is seeking the revocation by the European Union of Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founding chair Jose Maria Sison’s refugee status.
In an interview aired on Sunday over radio station dzBB, Interior Secretary Eduardo Año said that he had spoken with a deputy ambassador of the European Union to ask that Sison’s status as a refugee in the Netherlands be revoked so he could be extradited to the Philippines to face charges filed against him.
Manila Regional Trial Court Branch 32 Judge Thelma Bunyi-Medina ordered last month the arrest of Sison and some 30 others for multiple murder in connection with the 2006 discovery of a mass grave in Inopacan, Leyte.
According to Año, it was a “good development” to bring back Sison and the other communist leaders to jail.
He claimed that the European Union’s response to his request was, so far, positive, adding that the EU assured its cooperation with the government’s efforts. —Jeannette I. Andrade
