All those involved must be held accountable and this practice that violates human rights must be stopped.

TFDP pertains to the case of Marites Dela Cruz Marquez (Sierra Madre in Tumbil, Barangay Umiray,  General Nakar, Quezon) and Rosario Marquez Loreto (Mataping, Barangay Umiray, General Nakar, Quezon) who were illegally arrested on September 26, 2014 at Barangay Sta. Ines, Tanay, Rizal Province. (http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/665395/doj-finds-arrest-of-women-tribe-members-illegal-orders-reinvestigation)

Marites and Rosario were arrested by combined elements of the 59th and 16th Infantry Battalions and local police of Tanay, headed by 2LT Ronnel Avanzado and Chief Insp. Reynaldo Francisco because they were suspected to be members of the New People’s Army (NPA), accused of kidnapping, robbery and murder.

Seek Truth. Work for Justice. Wage Peace.
Justice for the Fallen, Justice for All!

Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) stands for truth. We would like to know what really happened at Mamasapano. We would like to determine accountability and command responsibility for the loss of lives which now threatens the peace negotiations between the GPH and the MILF.

TFDP stands for justice. When accountability is determined by an independent body, then the wheels of justice can begin to turn. Justice not only for the Fallen 44, but Justice for All!

TFDP stands for peace and reconciliation. Moslem Mindanao has had wars and conflicts for more than forty years. The peace agreement between government and the MILF is another step towards the path of peace. We have no illusions that it will suddenly bring peace in the conflict-torn areas and communities, but waging peace and engaging in dialogue are infinitely better than shooting at each other. War makes victims of us all!

TFDP journeys with all peacemakers and peace builders. Mindanao will fully develop if we recognize the diversity of its peoples and their cultures. Shalom or wholeness of being comes from the acceptance of differences. Let not hatred and vengeance reign in our hearts! Silence is necessary to embrace the faith and fate of the other. Let dignity and human rights be our starting point.

TFDP recalls these words: Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me. With every step I take, let this be my solemn vow – to seek truth, to work for justice, to wage peace! Justice for the Fallen, Justice for All!

Case Title: Loreto & Marquez ARD TOR  
Case: Arbitrary Arrest and Detention / Torture
Name of Victims: Marites Dela Cruz Marquez (Sierra Madre in Tumbil, Barangay Umiray,                                           General Nakar, Quezon) and Rosario Marquez Loreto (Mataping,                                                   Barangay Umiray, General Nakar, Quezon)
Date of Incident: September 26, 2014
Place of Incident: Barangay Sta. Ines, Tanay, Rizal Province
Alleged Perpetrators: combined elements of the 59th and 16th Infantry Battalions and local                                       police of Tanay, headed by 2LT Ronnel Avanzado and Chief Insp.                                                   Reynaldo Francisco
Motive: Suspected members of the New People’s Army (NPA)

Account of the Incident:

Loreto__Marquez_ARD_TOR_2Two (2) women from the Agta indigenous group in Quezon were illegally arrested and charged with the kidnapping of a soldier named Master Sergeant Lino Hernandez.   

On September 26, 2014 at 9:00am, while waiting for a ride in Barangay Sta. Ines in Tanay, Rizal, Marites Marquez, 43 and Rosario Loreto, 37, were approached by a group of military personnel and police who were all armed and wearing civilian clothes. The two were ‘invited” for questioning and to validate their identity. The two women were accompanied by the security forces to the barangay hall where they met some barangay officials. Marquez and Loreto were interrogated for two days by the soldiers and the police. They were repeatedly asked the same set of questions to make them admit their participation in the kidnapping of Master Sgt. Hernandez and to being NPA members. The two however denied the accusations. The police and soldiers eventually decided to bring them to the Tanay Police Station. At this point, barangay officials questioned the law enforcers’ decision since there was no proof that Loreto and Marquez committed a crime, therefore, there was no reason to detain them. Eventually, they both agreed to sign a blotter, with the condition that the police and soldiers will release Marquez and Loreto after the interview and crosschecking.

On the following day, September 27, Barangay Councilor Liwayway delos Reyes went to the Tanay Police Station to fetch Marquez and Loreto and bring them back to their families. The police at the station ignored her plea.   

On September 28, Barangay Councilor Reyes informed Fr. Pete Montallana about the whereabouts and situation of Marquez and Loreto. Fr. Montallana went to visit the two at the Tanay Police Station.

According to Fr. Montallana, Marquez and Loreto were accused of kidnapping and serious illegal detention and robbery, in relation to the abduction of a soldier named Master Sergeant Lino Hernandez by the New People’s Army (NPA). He added that the military and police linked Marquez and Loreto to the case because the choker necklace (made out of black cloth) they wore around their neck during the arrest was the same type of necklace worn by the Agta NPAs who kidnapped Master Sergeant Hernandez.

Based on Court documents produced, Marquez and Loreto were arrested based on sworn statements submitted by Virginia Villa Filipino, Jonathan Villa delos Angeles, Corporal Louie G. Eresnido, Police Officer 3 Arnel Dimalag Baslan, Police Officer 2 Rolando Candido Opena and Police Officer Jay Ar Baccay Bernabeo.  

Marquez and Loreto denied all allegations against them. Before they were arrested, both sold vegetables, did traditional gold panning, and did household chores for a living.

Marquez and Loreto are temporarily detained at the Rizal Police Provincial Office (RPO) lock-up cell at the Taytay Police Station but may soon be transferred to the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) in Camp Bagong Diwa, Bicutan, Taguig with reference to the ‘Order’ dated October 27, 2014, issued by Presiding Judge Sheila Marie Alaan-Ignacio.

The charges with criminal case number 14-12346-M against Marquez and Loreto are filed at Morong Regional Trial Court Branch 80.
