MANILA – One of the doctors belonging to the so-called Morong 43 filed a formal opposition to the promotion of two military officers allegedly involved in the torture of the health workers.

Dr. Alexis Montes filed May 17 his opposition to the promotion of Gen. Jorge Segovia and Col. Aurelio Baladad before the Commission on Appointments. Montes is one of the 43 health workers arrested by combined elements of the military and police on February 6, 2010 and charged with illegal possession of firearms and explosives. Most of them were released in December of the same year after President Benigno Aquino III was compelled to order the withdrawal of charges due to mounting protests.

Segovia, then commander of the 2nd Infantry Division of the Philippine Army, is set to replace Lieutenant General Arthur Tabaquero as Eastern Mindanao Command (Eastmincom) chief. The new post promotes him into the next higher rank of lieutenant general. Then colonel Baladad, meanwhile, has been promoted to brigadier general.
