Naaresto ang tatlong matataas na personalidad ng Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army regional committee sa ikinasang joint Army-Police operation sa Negros Occidental noong July 30.
Sa press release, sinabi ng 79th Infantry Battalion ng Army sa Negros Occidental na naaresto ang tatlong CPP-NPA personality sa Sitio Victory, Barangay Minapasok sa Calatrava.
Kinilala ang tatlo na sina Cristell Abordo alias Dulay, Mary dem Forones alias Nancy, at Rossine Enyong alias Lemay.
Nasabat din sa kanila ang isang 4 rifle; tatlong .38 revolver; apat na rifle grenades; walong cellular phones, medical supplies, at subversive documents.
Samantala, pinuri naman ni Lt. Col. Gerard Alvaran, 79thIB Commanding Officer ang matagumpay na operasyon.
“It is a clear manifestation that the people of Calatrava are really tired of being pestered by the presence of the CPP-NPA terrorists who extort money and recruit innocent citizens in their area,” aniya.
“While the joint AFP-PNP operations will continue to pursue these communist terrorists, I once again urge the victims of their deceptive recruitment in Northern Negros to return to the folds of the law, avail of the government’s Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) and live a normal life in the mainstream society with your families and loved ones,” dagdag pa nito.
