NUJP deplores manhandling of mediamen covering INC protest


THE National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) on Wednesday deplores the assault on a cameraman of ABS-CBN network covering the protest action of the Iglesia ni Cristo near the EDSA Shrine. Melchor Pinlac said he was grabbed by the neck, punched on the jaw, body, and back of the neck as the crowd around him chanted, “biased, biased.” A reporter of GMA network’s station dzBB, Olan Bola, was also shoved around as he tried to stop the attack on Pinlac. “We demand that the police act speedily and directly should Mr. Pinlac and any other colleagues who may have been harassed or hurt during the protest choose to file a complaint,” said NUJP Secretary General Francis Mangilit.
