Informant receives P3.2 M for arrest of NPA leader
by Harley F. Palangchao

The informant who helped police arrest an alleged elite member of the New Peoples Army in the Cordillera during an operation in Baguio in November 2012 has been rewarded for his deed.

The Philippine National Police general headquarters reported Monday the informant received the P3.2 million reward money for the arrest of alleged NPA leader Grayson M. Naogsan.

Naogsan, alleged leader of the NPA’s Ilocos-Cordillera Regional Committee, was arrested during police and military intelligence operations in a mall in Baguio almost two years ago.

The arrested suspected rebel leader is the son of Simon Naogsan, a government engineer who became a top rebel leader in the Cordillera.

The younger Naogsan earlier carried a reward of P700,000 under police and military Joint Order 10-2009 dated April 23, 2009. The bounty for any information leading to his arrest was increased to P3.2M under AFP/PNP Joint Resolution 72-2012 dated Aug. 28, 2012. 

The monetary reward given to the informant came from the PNP Confidential Intelligence Fund.

According to the PNP general headquarters, Naogsan gained notoriety for his involvement in a number of atrocities perpetrated by the NPA in the Cordillera.

From 2003 up to 2012, Naogsan has been involved in raids and ambuscades of government troops, resulting to the death of 23 soldiers and members of the Citizens Armed Forces Geographical Unit, the death of a barangay councilwoman, and wounding of 30 other government troops including a policeman.

Some 61 assorted firearms were also carted away by the NPA.

Criminal charges were filed against Naogsan and his companions. Ten warrants, mostly for murder, were subsequently issued by various courts for his arrest.
