Former CPLA commits to peace process

FORT BONIFACIO, Taguig City – The former Cordillera People’s Liberation Army (CPLA) now members of Cordillera Forum for Peace and Development (CFPD) continue to commit to peace process by integrating its former members to the Philippine Army.

On June 26, the Army will open a special Candidate Soldier Course to absorb 168 CFPD members.

Army Chief Lt Gen Noel A Coballes shall welcome these new aspiring soldiers with the hope that this will precede more successful mainstreaming and integration of the former rebels.
Meanwhile, the CFPD leadership exerted efforts to consolidate some of their firearms for turn in as agreed between the 5th Infantry Division and the CFPD.

In December last year, CFPD members surrendered 51 assorted high-powered firearms to the government in the presence of former Army Commander now Chief of Staff AFP Lt Gen Emmanuel T Bautista.

While the CFPD stand true to its commitment to the peace process, the Army as well, continues to strengthen its roadmap towards lasting peace in the country through its Internal Peace and Security Plan (IPSP) “Bayanihan”.

The Philippine Army calls for other insurgent groups to lay down their arms and instead, support the peace and development programs of the government.
