    NUPL hails court order denying Palparan et al’s pleading to halt proceedings, Motion only obstructs and frustrates justice

    The National Union of Peoples’ Lawyers (NUPL) just received an Omnibus Order dated April 3, 2012 from the Malolos, Bulacan Regional Trial Court Branch 14 denying the “Omnibus Motion for Preliminary Investigation; to Quash or Recall Warrant of Arrest; Hold Departure Order; and to Suspend Proceedings” filed by the accused M/Gen. Jovito Palparan, Jr., M/Sgt. Rizal Hilario and S/Sgt. Edgardo Osorio in the case involving the disappearance of university students Karen Empeno and Sherlyn Cadapan.

    “We welcome the court’s order as it basically sustains our position all along and is in accord with the law and jurisprudence,” said the NUPL panel of private prosecutors, through Atty. Edre Olala. “It only further proves that Palparan et al. are just obstructing and frustrating justice at all costs,” Olalia added.

    In the same order, the court denied the “Motion for Reconsideration” of the Panel of Prosecutors regarding the issue of the propriety of the Court’s order transferring the custody of Lt. Col. Felipe Anotado and S/Sgt. Osorio.

    “We will study whether to ask for the motion on the continued detention in the Army of the two accused though,” said Atty. Olalia.

    Ret. M/Gen. Palparan and M/Sgt. Hilario are still at large since a warrant of arrest was issued against them on December 19, 2011.

    “The government must deliver on fugitives pronto and dispel pervading views that it is inutile and even held by the military at the nose instead of promoting known human rights violators one after the other like those in the torture of the Morong 43.” #

    By calling yourselves the ‘people’s lawyer,’ you have made a remarkable choice. You decided not to remain in the sidelines. Where human rights are assaulted, you have chosen to sacrifice the comfort of the fence for the dangers of the battlefield. But only those who choose to fight on the battlefield live beyond irrelevance.”  Supreme Court Chief Justice Reynato S. Puno, in his message to the NUPL Founding Congress,Sept. 15, 2007
