2 rebels in Sagada surrender with weapons, ammunition
by PNA release

Two more members of the New People’s Army rebels have surrendered to government forces in Sagada, Mountain Province and turned over firearms and ammunition to authorities, a military official said.

“This is a clear manifestation that our strong collaboration with our stakeholders and the PNP is effective in our campaign to save our lost brothers by sending messages of peace through the programs of our government. Their surrender indicates the CNTs’ (Communist of the Philippines-NPA Terrorists) dwindling strength,” said Brig. Gen. Henry Doyaoen, commander of the 503rd Infantry Brigade.

The surrenderers were identified as alias “Jet,” 40, and a member of Squad 1, Kilusang Larangan Guerilla Marco; and alias “Tubay,” 47, a full-time Militia ng Bayan working with Kilusang Larangan Gerilya Marco.

Doyaoen said the two rebels turned over to authorities two M-16 rifles with live ammunition and a magazine.

Maj. Noriel Tayaban, 5IB information officer, said the two are undergoing a joint validation by the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police.

The issuance of the certification will begin the processing of their benefits under the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP).

The firearms they surrendered will also be paid based on the firearms remuneration program of the E-CLIP.

They will undergo orientation and custodial debriefing.

They will also be provided skills training by the government to equip them with the knowledge and be able to continue a life of peace.

In an earlier interview, Maj. Gen. Pablo Lorenzo, commander of 5ID, said the government is sincere in its effort to end the decades-long armed conflict.

President Rodrigo Duterte issued Executive Order 70, which mandates all government agencies to collaborate in coming  up with programs and projects to encourage NPA rebels to return to the fold of the law and receive services and support to make their lives better.
