Malacañang has scoffed at Communist of the Philippines (CPP) founder Jose Ma. Sison’s comment that he’ll return to the Philippines on his personal phrases and never on President Rodrigo Duterte’s say-so.
Presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella mentioned Sison’s remarks, which had been made in on-line interviews, present his “apparent disconnect” with communists in the nation “who seem to have deteriorated from ideologues to plain criminals and extortionists.”
“It is unfortunate he needs to be coaxed to return to his homeland, while his wounded comrades in the mountains in the Philippines are left dying only for our soldiers to rescue and accord medical care,” Abella mentioned in a press release.
The Palace official it was apparent that Sison “took to the soft life in Europe” while leaving fighters of the New People’s Army to take care of themselves.
“No wonder they are only too eager now to demand their unearned portions,” he mentioned.
Sison, who lives in exile in The Netherlands, mentioned he’ll return to the nation “if deemed necessary by the revolutionary movement.”
He made the remarks after Duterte dared him to return to the Philippines to battle his battles.
The President has claimed that Sison has colon most cancers however the communist chief denied it.
