MANILA, Philippines — Opposition Senator Francis Pangilinan has called for the relief of Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Southern Luzon Command chief Lt. Gen. Antonio Parlade Jr. for his recent remarks against an INQUIRER.net reporter. Pangilinan said on Thursday Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzna must also "show Parlade the door" after the latter's tirades against reporter Tetch Torres-Tupas, over her story on Aetas who supposedly endured torture from the military, and who filed a petition before the Supreme Court (SC). According to the senator, Parlade must suffer the same fate as AFP deputy chief of staff for intelligence Maj. Gen. Alex Luna, who was relieved after blunders on list of supposed former University of the Philippines (UP) students who joined the communist armed movement. "Enough of this unprofessionalism and lack of discipline with such baseless, erroneous public statements. Like AFP Intel Chief Luna, Lorenzana should show Parlade the door," Pangilinan said in a tweet.
