Former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has appealed to the military to avoid joining the alleged extrajudicial killings being conducted by the police.
Trillanes, a former rebel soldier, said the military should stick with fighting the armed combatants instead. The latest appeal was aired in a latest Facebook post of the former lawmaker.
“I am calling on the AFP to stop joining the EJK operations of the PNP. You are better than this,” he wrote on Facebook.
“Just stick to the combatants. Beat them and the front orgs would become irrelevant,” he said.
Trillanes also gave an unsolicited advice to the police force to slow down their operations.
“As for the PNP, magdahan-dahan kayo dahil duterte cannot protect you ‘pag wala na sya sa pwesto,” he said.
Trillanes made the appeal after nine activists were killed while several others were arrested in police and military raids in Calabarzon last weekend. The crackdown happened two days after President Duterte ordered security forces to kill armed communist rebels during an encounter.
