NPA rebels burn rubber firm's vehicle in Zamboanga Sibugay

MEMBERS of the New People’s Army (NPA) burned a vehicle of a rubber company in Zamboanga Sibugay on Wednesday, March 8, authorities said.

Zamboanga Sibugay Police Director Romulo Cleve Taboso said the incident happened around 11 a.m. Wednesday at Purok 3 in the village of Lacnapan, Kabasalan town.

Taboso said the NPA rebels drove the vehicle owned by MJ Rubber Company to a riverbank and torched it there.

The rebels owned up the torching through a letter they left in the area, signed by NPA’s Zamboanga Peninsula Regional Operations Command spokesman Ka Mario Jose.

No one was reported killed or injured during the incident.

Investigation showed the NPA rebels torched the vehicle as the owners of the land being cultivated by the rubber firm have filed complaint with the NPA’s court, Bagong Hukbong Bayan, against the company.

The NPA rebels fled to the town of Bayog in Zamboanga del Sur, the police said.
