The New People’s Army carried out the death penalty imposed by the people’s court on a man for raping his own daughters, after years of inaction by the reactionary government.
Red fighters of the Mt. Amandewin Command (NPA-MAC) punished serial rapist Boboy Tapalla, 50 years old, of Carigara, Leyte last July 7 for sexually assaulting over several years four of his daughters as well his own sister who was mentally ill.
According to the NPA-MAC, Tapalla raped two of his daughters while they were still minors. One of them, aged 13, was last assaulted only February of this year. Two of them were impregnated by their own father.
For years the daughters personally filed cases at the offices of the reactionary government but their demands fell on deaf ears. Local police once attempted to arrest Tapalla but he was able to flee.
The daughters and other family members thanked the People’s Democratic Government and the Red fighters for for finally rendering justice on Tapalla.
The masses clapped in delight and assisted the Red fighters after the special operation to make sure they made their way safely back to their unit.
