Stephen “ Steve” Tauli, 63 years old, a Regional Council member of the Cordillera Peoples Alliance (CPA) was mauled and abducted last night, August 20, 2022 at around 6-9 pm in front of a store along Ag-a Road, Brgy. Appas, Tabuk City, very near the CPA office-Kalinga by 5 armed men believed to be State security forces. The five armed men were also reported to have entered the vicinity of the CPA office.
Prior to this incident, Steve was subjected to redtagging, surveillance and harassment as has been experienced by CPA leaders and members. Last week, an NTF-ELCAC activityheld in the Kalinga State University had Eric Celis as a speaker in a forum that continued to rabidly redtag the CPA.
Steve is the husband of CPA Vice-chairperson Jill Cariño.
We urgently appeal for public support in the search for Stephen “Steve” Tauli. We call for the State for Steve to be immediately and unconditionally surfaced alive.
