‘Frequency disturbing’: DOJ backs moves to pass Red-tagging law

MANILA (UPDATE) – Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra on Thursday backed moves by lawmakers to pass a law defining and criminalizing Red-tagging, saying the frequency of complaints related to it has become disturbing. Guevarra said the absence of a red-tagging law means individuals accused of being members of the communist insurgency can only file complaints for harassment, defamation, unjust vexation and violation of privacy laws against their accusers.
