PAMALAKAYA calls for immediate release Greco Regala and other activist leaders in Caraga
Regala, 52, is a member of PAMALAKAYA-Caraga who was arrested in Tubay, Agusan del Norte, along with Piston’s Isias Genorga and Gina Tutor of Gabriela, in simultaneous police operations in the province yesterday.
A Facebook post from the PNP-Caraga said that Tutor, Genorga, and Vilma Dalangin were arrested in a joint police-military operations, over “murder” charges.
Regala was not included on the PNP’s list of arrested activists in their statement, and his charges remain to be unknown as of posting.
“We strongly denounce this another series of PNP’s arresting spree in Caraga region. Regala, along with other activists arrested over trumped-up charges should be freed immediately and unconditionally,” PAMALAKAYA said in a statement.
“Regala is an active member of our regional chapter in Caraga involved in local campaigns, including the protection of municipal waters against illegal fishing and other destructive projects,” PAMALAKAYA added.
