As of this writing, Ka Angel and Ka Lottie Manalo and their families, including volunteer helpers and their families, with young children, remain walled in at Ka Angel’s house.
Once again thumbing its nose at the law, INC continues to ignore a court order issued on December 16th by the Hon. Edgar Dalmacio Santos, Quezon City RTC Judge, Branch 222:
- INC has not removed structure blocking access between homes.
Judge Santos ordered INC to “dismantle and remove”, any wall or structure erected between the homes of Ka Angel and Ka Lottie, “at its expense to allow access by the occupants of both houses to each other” (ref. item #1). Not only has INC not complied with this order, there are no signs it plans to comply, ever.
Note that the barricade was seen by Quezon City Branch Sheriff Neri Loy who was dispatched by Judge Santos immediately after the Dec 16th hearing to continue with the previously ordered ocular inspection.
- INC has not removed guard house and portalet.
INC also refuses to comply with directive to “remove guardhouse, portalet and the guards posted at gate no. 3 of No. 36 Tandang Sora Avenue, Quezon City” (ref. item #2). These structures continue to stand tall and proud right outside the gates. The guards are still there also.
- INC has not turned over the electric meter.
INC continues to ignore Judge Santos’ order to “turn over the electric meter” (ref. item #4), an order meant to restore power at the residences of Ka Angel and Ka Lottie.
In another display of a recalcitrant and treacherous streak of character by INC, on the morning of Dec 15th, when Branch Sheriff Loy saw that the INC construction workers were building metal sheet fences to barricade the homes at #36 Tandang Sora, he asked them to stop what they were doing. They did so briefly but as soon as the Sheriff, barangay and police officers have gone, the workers continued to erect the fences, saying they were just “following orders” (in Tagalog, “sumusunod lang sa utos”).
INC displays Above-the-Law Attitude AGAIN.
In what has become a recurring theme of late, INC Leaders have once again manifested to the world their appalling arrogance. The high and mighty cannot be made to bend to the law of the land, judicial orders be damned. Never mind the public pronouncements of INC spokesperson Edwil Zabala that INC will face this fight in the “proper venue” (court) and “proper forum” (legal) and in a Christian way “dictated by good manners”. Good manners? Defiance of a court order is good manners? Display of arrogance is good manners?
And pray, tell us, what is so Christian about the way our leaders have been treating the children of the late Executive Minister and grandchildren of God’s Last Messenger? Is the INC now bent on embracing a completely new ideology centered on hypocrisy? On one hand, proclaiming love and compassion for fellowmen against the backdrop of “Kabayan ko, Kapatid ko” (or “My Countrymen, My Brethren” outside of the Philippines), while on the other, these same leaders are non-stop in aggressively oppressing not only the family of the late Bro. Erano G, Manalo but also those who come to their aid, including a brother who recently died from a heart attack. Three weeks before, doctors were barred entry at 36 Tandang Sora by INC lawyer and security personnel. Excuse me, but where in the Good Book can your actions be considered Christian? Shameful, yes, but Christian? No way!
More construction on Dec 21st to block windows.
On Monday, Dec 21st, intent on suffocating the siblings, the INC construction crew, with their faces still hidden, came back and performed more atrocities. They covered with metal sheets the windows and air conditioning units of both Ka Angel and Ka Lottie’s homes, blocking light and air from coming into the homes. See our article on this entitled Free Ka Angel and Ka Lottie Manalo!!!, complete with pictures.
Demand to Vacate from INC Legal.
On Monday, Dec 28th, a demand letter was sent by INC lawyers Santos and Cuevas to Ka Angel and Ka Lottie to vacate #36 Tandang Sora. Knowing fully well that this action does not have the force of law behind it, especially since the property ownership issue is still outstanding, these lawyers carried on with their intimidation tactics anyway.
Sanggunian, admit it, you got caught with your hand in the cookie jar! In order to steal property that doesn’t belong to you, you falsified a legal document (Deed of Sale), brought someone back from the dead (Ka Edward Hemedez) and forged his and his wife’s (Ka Lottie’s) signatures! Since you know the court (aka “the proper forum”, “the proper venue”), will not let you get away with this, you resort to terrorizing the respondents instead!
As to the other false claims in your letter, rest assured we shall respond to them in the proper forum and venue!
Questions Still Awaiting Answers from Ka Eduardo.
Ka Eduardo, you claimed in one of the worship services you officiated, that you know EVERYTHING that is going on in the Church. That, indeed, you call the shots on anything and everything that concerns the Church. Do you know about this? Did you order this? Ka Angel, your good-natured brother, insinuated in one of the interviews, that you may not be aware of this latest act of cruelty, especially the desecration of what used to be your parents’ home! Ref. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFncOQXc2mc We ask you now to tell us the truth. Did you or did you not order this??? The whole world is waiting for your answer.
A Call for Help.
In the meantime, we call on EVERYONE, especially human rights advocates, people with principles, people who fight for the oppressed, people with good hearts, Iglesia ni Cristo or not, if you are in a position to help the Manalo siblings, please do so. This is not just our fight. This is everyone’s fight. Help us stop these inhumane and vicious acts! If we do not help each other fight the influential and the powerful, today it’s them, tomorrow, it may be you. Please help us and act now!
