A former anti-insurgency task force official has accused a judge of “lawyering” for communists after she dismissed a proscription case against the Communist Party of the Philippines and the New People’s Army.
In a Facebook post Friday afternoon, Lorraine Badoy criticized Manila Regional Trial Court Branch 19 Judge Marlo Magdoza-Malagar for ruling that rebellion and political crimes are not acts of terrorism.
Badoy called Magdoza-Malagar’s decision a “judgment straight from the bowels of communist hell.”
She then posted a hypothetical scenario: “So if I kill this judge and I do so out of my political belief that all allies of the CPP NPA NDF must be killed because there is no difference in my mind between a member of the CPP NPA NDF and their friends, then please be lenient with me.”
On Saturday, however, Badoy denied Badoy…making a hypothetical statement on killing Judge Magdoza-Malagar, calling it “fake news.”
Her earlier post was also no longer available on her timeline on Facebook.
However, she again claimed the judge was a “friend and defender of the CPP NPA NDF.”
She added that she wants to build an organization which will “start bombing the offices of these corrupt judges who are friend of terrorists — even if they kneel before us and beg for their lives…”
In a separate post Saturday evening, Badoy posed three questions which she said Magdoza-Malagar must answer.
“Questions we need to ask Judge Marlo Malagar: 1. Is it true your husband, Atty Leo Malagar, who is currently the 2nd Vice Chancellor of UP Cebu, was a cadre of the CPP NPA NDF in the Youth Sector? 2. Is he still active with the CPP NPA NDF? 3. How true is it that the ones who helped you craft your malodorous decision regarding the terrorist organization CPP NPA NDF were Edre Olalia, Sol Taule and Rachel Pastores?”
Badoy did not offer proof to substantiate her post, but said the questions were based on information given to her by an “asset.”
