ECQ violator gets mauled in Cavite

The militant labor organization Kilusang Mayo Uno has condemned the brutal beating of a factory worker by police officers as he was arrested allegedly for violating community quarantine rules in Gen. Trias, Cavite.

“Kapag mahirap tulad ng manggagawang si Ronald Campo, inaaresto agad at inaabot pa ng matinding bugbog. Walang anumang katuwiran sa pambubugbog kay Campo. Dapat managot ang mga gumawa nito!” said KMU Secretary-General Jerome Adonis in a statement.

KMU slammed the double standard on the implementation of enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) rules, saying that this is not the first time police exercised brutality instead of compassion amid the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) crisis.

“Napakalinaw na hindi patas ang pulis sa sinasabi nitong pagpapatupad ng batas. Ang simpleng paglabag sa curfew o paglabas ng bahay ay walang batayang ligal para arbitraryong arestuhin ang sinasabi nilang lumabag sa ECQ. Samantalang si General Debold Sinas na malinaw na lumabag sa mga pamantayan ng ECQ ay mabilis na inabswelto ni PNP Chief Gamboa,” said Adonis.

KMU also called for the immediate investigation as to who were responsible for beating Campo, and urged authorities to file criminal charges to be filed against them.
