BABAE KA CATEGORICALLY DENIES GABRIELA’S ACCUSATION

PRESS RELEASE

APRIL 21, 2007

“Another propaganda scheme of another leftist organization”BABAE KA CATEGORICALLY DENIES GABRIELA’S ACCUSATION  

 

WOMEN party-list Babae para sa Kaunlaran (BABAE KA) today categorically denied that it is a stooge of Malacañang even as it challenged Gabriela party-list to file a formal complaint.

 

Sally Dagami, BABAE KA chairperson, said that, “For the nth time, we want the Filipino people to know that BABAE KA party-list is not a Malacañang-backed organization. BABAE KA has not received a single centavo from the government.”

 

“Just like Akbayan’s, the accusation of Gabriela is another cheap-shot by another leftist organization that is aimed to generate media projection at our expense. The document that this so-called cause-oriented have shown publicly is a fabrication. BABAE KA knows nothing about this,” Dagami added.

 

Dagami stressed that she has never met an Assistant Secretary Marcelo Fariñas of the Office of External Affairs.

 

“I do not know Mr. Fariñas. In fact, this is the first time I heard of his name,” Dagami stated.

 

 Ruth Vasquez, BABAE KA president, said that, “Mukhang isa na namang kuryente ito, to borrow media’s parlance. Kinukuryente ng Gabriela ang media sa inanunsyo nila.”

 

“The document shown by Gabriela could be written by anybody. It could be a product of the dirty-tricks department of extremist organizations. Wala kaming alam sa mga pinagsasabi nila,” Vasquez explained.

 

Dagami challenged Gabriela to file formal complaints against BABAE KA “so that we could also file formal charges against the leaders of this group.”###
