The Supreme Court (SC) has never called “red-tagging” as non-existent, said National Union of People’s Lawyers (NUPL) president Edre Olalia.

Olalia pointed this out as he corrected the statement made by Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Undersecretary Lorraine Badoy about the pending Senate bill which seeks to criminalize red-tagging.

Badoy has called the bill as “worrisome” since lawmakers are using the word “red-tagging” which she said “our Supreme Court, the highest court of the land, has already said doesn’t exist.”

“She got it all wrong and mixed up,” Olalia said.

“SC never said that,” he stressed.

The lawyer explained the Court of Appeals (CA) had made a ruling concerning the red-tagging of militant groups and is now “pending review by the SC.”

“If she was a lawyer, she would have been disciplined for wrong attribution and erroneous citation for cherrypicking out of context,” Olalia said.
