CAMP SANG-AN, Labangan, Zamboanga del Sur – Four armed NPA Militia members surrendered to the Army’s 44th Infantry Battalion in Brgy Balagon, Siay, Zamboanga Sibugay 4:00 p.m. Wednesday July 10, 2019.

“Our initial custodial debriefing found out that they were no longer satisfied by the promises and lies of the Communist NPA Terrorist (CNT) in their community”, said Lt. Col. Don Templonuevo, 44th Infantry Battalion Commander.

“Ang ilahang saad sa amoha nga tagaan mi ug maayong pamoyo ug protektahan kami sa mga abusado nga sundalo, apan nabali ang tanan, sila man hinuoy mga abusado. Ang among kunsumo sa bukid, sila man hinuoy nakapahimulos”, ingon ni alias Carol.
(“They’ve promise us a peaceful life and protect us from the abusive soldiers, however it was the way around. They were the abusive. They consumed our foods in the mountain,” said alias Carol).

The four NPA Militia also yielded one homemade shotgun (pistoled), three handguns and ammunitions.

“We urge other NPA Militia and CNTs in our area of operation to cooperate and surrender. We also encourage the local chief executives to engage and lead the localized peace talks among communist NPA Terrorists to address the issues and problems peacefully”, said Brig. Gen. Bagnus Gaerlan, 102nd Infantry Brigade Commander which has operational jurisdiction of Zamboanga Sibugay.

“Rest assured that we will collaborate and support the activities of the local government in addressing peace and security in the area”, added Gaerlan.

Meanwhile, Major General Roberto Ancan, the 1st Infantry Division and Joint Task Force Zampelan (Zamboanga Peninsula and Lanao Provinces) commander, commended the efforts of the troops that led to the surrender of the four NPA Militia.

“We encourage other CNT members and Militia to surrender with their firearms, return to the folds of the law and benefit the Enhanced Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) of the government”, said Ancan.

“Based on Executive Order Nr 70, a Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC), we believed that the E-CLIP will be further enhanced and improved to be benefited by the former rebels in our country,” added Ancan.

“Convergence and synchronization of plans, programs and projects among the government agencies is vital and key to end the long decades of insurgency that only brought misery to our country”, Ancan concluded.
