How can something so routinary such as the detention of one man accused of horrific crimes against humanity be so complicated and fussy as to compel the realignment of the cosmos and tripping over of the government all over itself to suit his convenience and preference? This will serve as a bad precedent and example for all those who can wreak evil and get concessions along the way.
Palparan’s transfer to Philippine Army Custodial Center, based on alleged threats that have been proven in court today to be all speculative, does not answer the question of why a civilian should be detained in a military facility. Why, for heaven’s sake, in all places his old stomping grounds the headquarters of the Army?
It just doesn’t make sense.
Palparan and his gang, as well as his padrinos in high places, will be having a bacchanalian party tonight and high fives among themselves because the system has again worked in favor of the rich, powerful, influential and with connections.
Yet again, what do we seek: justice for the victims or convenience for the accused? Indeed there is so much to be distressed, yet so much to fight for.#

Palparan’s homecoming to military custody shows arrest was staged – AnakbayanFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 15, 2014
Jovito Palparan’s transfer to military HQ is Daang Matuwid-style VIP treatment for human rights violators. This homecoming is a grave insult to the families of the victims of extrajudicial killings, human rights abuse, torture and disappearances.
This shows that the “arrest” of Palparan was only a show staged to salvage Aquino’s popularity. The script: he was to be arrested only to be taken home again under the special care of his fascist barkada. Aquino should be held accountable for coddling Palparan and continuing the fascist rampage against the people under his Oplan Bayanihan.
