NSFA, Panacan, Davao City – The Eastern Mindanao Command slammed the Communist Terrorist Group’s (CTG) continuous use of minors in their effort to overthrow the government, after a 16-year old member of their group surrendered to authorities on the evening of November 16, 2019, at St. Peter, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon.

“This is a clear gross violation of children’s rights. Do not rob their future; allow them to explore their potential freely and let children be children,” Lt. Gen. Felimon T. Santos Jr., Commander of Eastern Mindanao Command said.

The minor who is considered under the Children Situation in Armed Conflict (CSAC) was identified as alias BULAW, a member of an NPA group being monitored in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon.

In his surrender, he brought with him a cal. 30M1 Carbine rifle and a hand grenade.

Accordingly, he was deceptively invited to undergo an orientation on his rights as a youth. However, he came to know that he is being forced to join the armed group. He tried to leave the group but was threatened.

He was able to run away from the group after five months of being with them.

The surrender of the minor was properly coordinated with the local Social Welfare Office for proper disposition and psychosocial intervention.
