Another Victim of Enforced Disappearance Abducted by Alleged CIDG Agents

A technical consultant for the farmers’ organization Life and Food for Leyte Evacuees (LFLE) Norberto Murillo was forcibly abducted this morning outside the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) building by three men who identified themselves as operatives of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG).

Murillo was abducted after having a meeting at the DAR to follow up on the papers regarding LFLE’s land claim for alienable and disposal land in Leyte. According to Murillo’s companion, LFLE Chairperson Paulo Dellosa the three men showed Murillo a warrant of arrest and introduced themselves as CIDG operatives after which they forcibly dragged Murillo to a waiting FX vehicle.

Dellosa immediately reported the case to human rights group Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP). As of the time of writing the identity of Murillo’s abductors and the detention area to which he was brought to remains unknown.

Murillo joins the long list of victims of enforced disappearance documented under Gloria Arroyo’s government. He was an active member of the progressive movement during the 80’s and early 90’s but has since left the mainstream to work with farmers organizations as a technical consultant helping them with their land issues.

LFLE which Murillo is currently working with represents farmers who were displaced from their farmlands in Leyte during the late 80’s due to the effect of former President Corazon Aquino’s “Total War Policy”; after being displaced from Leyte these farmers sought temporary refuge at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines under then University President Nemesio Prudente.

Irom Sharmila Video

Irom Sharmila is a young woman of Manipur who has been on a fast-to-death for nearly 7 years now. She has been demanding the removal of a brutal law from her land. Manipur is a north-east Indian state (bordering Myanmar), riven for decades by insurgency and armed separatist movements. The Government of India has attempted to control the situation militarily, granting drastic powers to the security forces. The Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act enforced in the region lets people be arrested, shot and even killed - on suspicion alone. But Sharmila is willing to stake everything -- even her life -- to restore justice and dignity to her people.
