Today, another prominent artist, UP Professor Dr. Jun Cruz Reyes complained of possible military surveillance consisting of an unidentified man who took his pictures using a cellphone, the casing of his house in Sta. Elena, Hagonoy, Bulacan, and a report from a friend saying that he is in the "order of battle" of the Philippine Army.

The military has denied any intentional surveillance or inclusion in the order of battle of Lumbera and Reyes.
