Malacañang on Thursday said there was nothing wrong with the simultaneous raids on the offices of several progressive groups.

“The government policy is always to investigate complaints on criminal activities, and if they have evidence, then they will take action,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said in a media briefing.

On Tuesday, the police swooped down on the office of the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan in Tondo, Manila, which led to the arrest of three activists for illegal possession of firearms and explosives.

Last week, the regional offices of the Bayan Muna party-list and Gabriela in Bacolod, Negros Occidental were also raided, resulting in more than 50 arrests.

“That is supposed to be the duty of the security, if they have basis for surveillance,” Panelo said.
