Binigyang-diin ng kampo ni Liza Soberano na hindi interesado sa politika ang young actress.
Ayon sa legal counsel ni Liza na si Atty. Juanito Lim Jr., sadyang ipinapakita lamang ng 22-year-old actress ang pagmamahal at respeto nito para sa mga kababaihan at kabataan bilang personal advocacy.
Ugat ng pag-alma ng kampo ni Soberano ay matapos maugnay sa rebeldeng grupo dahil lamang sa pakikiisa sa online talk ng Gabriela Youth.
Dito ay kanyang hinihinikayat ang lahat na huwag matakot magkaroon ng boses pagdating sa mga isyu lalo kung sangkot ang kababaihan at kabataan.
“Ms. Soberano remains to be apolitical. She does not support nor antagonize any person’s political views. The important point here is respect for others, a virtue she has conscientiously practiced all her life.
We, thus, call on everyone concerned to be circumspect in associating our client with their respective politics beliefs, whatever it may be,” saad ni Atty. Lim Jr.
Una rito, binalaan ni Lt. Gen. Antonio Parlade Jr. ng National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) si Liza at maging si 2018 Miss Universe Catriona Magnayon Gray hinggil sa ugnayan daw sa Gabriela Youth.
Narito ang bahagi ng pahayag ng nasabing military official sa NTF-ELCAC Facebook page:
“Let us not red-tag Liza Soberano. It’s not fair to her. She is merely supporting advocacy for women’s rights. She has to be protected in the exercise of her rights. Is she an NPA? No, of course not. Not yet.
Liza Soberano, there’ s still a chance to abdicate that group. If you don’t, you will suffer the same fate as Josephine Anne Lapira @ELLA, former Deputy Secretary General of Gabriela Youth of UP, Manila and defender of women’s rights, even against sexual predators amongst her comrades in the NPA unit she joined which is clearly stated in her handwritten letter addressed to a certain @EMIL.
The choice is yours Liza. And so with you Catriona. Don’t follow the path Ka Ella Colmenares (Locsin) took in the underground and NPA Quezon. I am sure Angel Locsin and Neri Colmenares will not tell you this.”
