Erin Tañada urges probe into Hacienda Nene’s security personnel
Former Quezon 4th District Representative Erin Tañada called for an an independent probe into the killing of nine sugarcane farmers in Sagay City last October 20.
Hacienda Nene’s hired gunmen supposedly rained bullets upon the farmers while they were resting during the night.
The Quezon politiko said Hacienda Nene’s security personnel must be investigated.
“Authorities should also immediately investigate the hacienda owner’s security personnel and find out if policemen and military personnel are among its roster,” Tañada said.
“This is necessary to guarantee an impartial and thorough investigation, amid allegations by the police and military that some peasant groups have links to communist rebels,” he added.
