Cardinal Tagle was already warned by the AFP in 2019 about the Caritas funds ending up in the hands of the TERRORIST CPP-NPA. The Catholic church did not take any action. Now his inaction may have caused him his job at the Vatican.

Among the church-based organizations supposedly being exploited by the terrorist CPP-NPA are the Vatican-based Caritas Internationale, Caritas Austria, Caritas Belgium, Bread of the World, Diakone Katasthropenhlife, Evangelisher Etwicklungsdient, Caritas Switzerland, Cooperation Assistance and Relief Everywhere, Oxfam UK and Oxfam Ireland.

According to Gen. Parlade, these are among the international church-based non-government organizations (NGO) that were unwittingly channeling funds to the terrorist CPP-NPA and its front organizations Kabataan, Anakpawis, Bayan Muna, Act Teachers, Gabriela (KABAG).

Parlade said the NTF-ELCAC already met with Caritas Internationale in Rome, Caritas Belgique and Manila Archbishop Cardinal Antonio Tagle, who is the president of Caritas worldwide.
At the local front, Parlade particularly identified the Mindanao Interfaith Services Foundation Inc. (Misfi) and Rural Missionaries of the Philippines (RMP) as among the NGO that received cash donations from international donors.

Parlade said the international church-based groups are being exploited by the terrorist CPP-NPA as they are blinded on where actually their donations end up, especially during disasters.
“Let’s say during calamities, when Caritas Internationale gives the go-signal, all chapters, say in Australia, Ireland and UK will donate… All of them will send donations,” Parlade said.
“Then, Caritas Manila would not know where these funds end up when downloaded. Incidentally, who ends up using these funds? Those members who are infiltrated,” he added.
Previously, Parlade identified several NGO based in the European Union and Belgium as donors of various CPP-NPA-linked groups, like RMP, MISFI, Karapatan, Ibon Foundation, Gabriela, Alliance of Concerned Teachers, Bagong Alyansang Makabayan and Alcadev.

He claimed that billions of pesos in foreign donations are ending up in the hands of CPP-NPA front organizations in support of the decades-old armed rebellion against the Philippine government.
