Nr1026:Cojuangcos must be made responsible for Ric Ramos' murder

Cojuangcos must be made responsible for Luisita union leader’s murder – Rep. Beltran

Anakpawis Representative Crispin Beltran today said that Rep. Noynoy Aquino’s statement that his family should not be responsible for the brutal killing of Hacienda Luisita labor leader Ricardo Ramos should not be believed.

“Rep. Aquino is trying to cover up for what the Cojuangcos have done and continue to do against the workers of Hacienda Luisita. It’s crucial that the circumstances surrounding and leading to the murder of Ric Ramos be determined, and we are confident that the Cojuangcos will also be found accountable for the murder.”

The veteran labor leader turned legislator said that since the public’s attention has been deflected from the hacienda Luisita issue in the last few months, the Cojuangcos have taken advantage of the situation and initiated steps to undermine the union and the union members’ unity. It will be a grave dishonor to the memory of Ric Ramos and the other martyrs of the Hacienda Luisita massacre to allow the Cojuangcos to escape responsibility for the killings.” #
