Journalist Slams Jim Paredes for Malicious Tweets on SAF 44
Veteran journalist and columnist of The Manila Standard Jojo Robles hits hard on Pro-Yellow defender and one of the detractors of Pres. Duterte, musician Jim Paredes when the APO member insinuated on Twitter that Pres. Rody Duterte ordered the reopening of the Mamasapano case to make the public forget about the killing of South Korean businessman Ick Joo.
Jim Paredes posted on Twitter the following statement "Is Digong meeting Mamasapano families so we forget the strangled Korean and Palpak Bato? The statement of Paredes caught the attention of Jojo Robles and responded on Facebook by stating that "You'd have to be stupid or really Yello (or stupid AND Yello) to believe that."
According to Jojo Robles on his Facebook Page, Pres. Rody Duterte has been questioning the Mamasapano tragedy long before the former Davao City Mayor assumed the presidency and made a promise during the election campaign period to help the kin of the SAF 44 troopers get justice.
Pres. Rody Duterte made the revelations of re-opening the Mamasapano case on the eve of the second anniversary of the massacre, the first under Duterte admin. The President issued the directive before the relatives of he Fallen SAF 44 victims.
Jojo Robles explained that Pres. Rody Duterte has been questioning the conduct of Oplan Exodus which has the go-signal of former President Aquino. He also promised during the campaign period that once elected as President he will reopen the case and give the Medla of Valor o all of the slain troopers.
Here's the Complete Statement of Jojo Robles:
Is the president's call for a revisiting of the Mamasapano Massacre a diversionary ploy, to make us forget the killing of a South Korean businessman? You'd have to be stupid or really Yellow (or stupid AND Yellow) to believe that. Consider:
Duterte made the revelation on the eve of the second anniversary of the massacre, the first marked during his presidency. He issued the directive before the relatives of the SAF 44. Did Duterte choose the date of the massacre? I don't think so.
Duterte has been questioning the conduct of Oplan Exodus long before he was president. As a candidate, he promised to reopen it and to give the Medal of Valor to all the slain troopers during the campaign. That's exactly what he did yesterday.
Was the declaration just pulled out of a hat, because of the Korean's killing? Only if you took some powerful drugs a long time ago which are still taking effect today, when you are no longer a member of the Apo Hiking Society.
