The Supreme Court (SC) has issued protection orders in favor of three cause-oriented groups which have accused the government of harassment after being tagged as being affiliated with communist rebels.

The high tribunal has issued a resolution which granted the petitions for the issuance of writs of amparo and habeas data sought by Karapatan Alliance Philippines, Inc., Rural Missionaries of the Philippines Inc. and General Assembly of Women for Reforms, Integrity, Equality, Leadership and Action (GABRIELA) Inc.

The writ of amparo is intended to protect the petitioners against threats to the lives, liberty and security.

While, the writ of habeas data directs the government reveal and destroy all files or records gathered against the petitioners and their members.

In the same order, the SC also directed the government respondents to respond to the petitions by submitting a verified return on or before June 13.

Those who have been named as respondents by the three petitioners are President Rodrigo Duterte, Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana, National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon Jr., Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo, Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief of Staff Gen. Benjamin Madrigal Jr., Brig. Gen, Fernando Trinidad, Maj. Gen. Erwin Neri, Maj. Gen. Antonio Parlade Jr., Lt. Gen. Macairog Sabiniano Alberto, National Intelligence Coordinating Council (NICA) Director General Alex Paul Monteagudo, NICA Deputy Director General Vicente Agdamag, Police Sr. Supt. Omega Jireh Fidel, and Undersecretaries Joel Egco, Severo Catura, and Lorraine Marie Badoy.

Meanwhile, the SC also directed the Court of Appeals (CA) to hold hearings on the petitions this June 18 and, after which, decide within 10 days.
