2 former rebels yield in Eastern Visayas

ANOTHER two alleged members of the New People’s Army (NPA) have surrendered to authorities in Eastern Visayas.

Alias Libor, 43, and alias Nic, 23, said they “want to cut their ties with the rebel group and help the government to end the local terrorism” during their surrender Tuesday, July 20, 2021, in Basey, Samar.

In the information released by the Police Regional Office-Eastern Visayas, alias Libor also turned over a caliber .45 Springfield armory pistol, one magazine assembly, and five pieces of live ammunition for the same caliber of firearm.

Authorities identified the surrenderers as former squad members of the sub-regional committee Sesame in the region.

Their surrender was facilitated by the 805th Maneuver Company of the Regional Mobile Force Battalion.

The two former rebels are now under the custody of the company for proper documentation while they will be availing themselves of the National Government’s Enhance Comprehensive Local Integration Program. (SunStar Philippines)
