Capture and Surrender Cause CPP-NPA-NDF to Self-destruct

Camp Evangelista, CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY ──The CPP-NPA-NDF is expected to self-destruct with the recent capture of Benito and Wilma Tiamzon at Brgy Zaragoza, Aloguinsan, Cebu City and the surrender of 72 NPA members to 4ID last 22 and 28 March, 2014, respectively.

As the current CPP-NPA Chairman and the Secretary General, Tiamzons’ arrest crippled the communist organization, no one is directing the armed groups operation while their centralized-type logistical management is also paralyzed since his wife Wilma used to manage it.

This incident resulted to the surrender of their 72 members who have realized that the rotten system of the CNN only suits their higher ranking cadres. While some of their members especially in Northern Mindanao are now establishing lines of communication for their safe passage and eventual surrender.

MGEN Ricardo R Visaya AFP, Commander, 4ID said, “The current situation of the CNN is likened to a car without a driver and without gasoline. These gains are proofs that they are becoming weak and whenever they perceived that they are at the losing end, they will again manifest their intention to negotiate and return to the negotiating table.”
“We will continue accepting those who would like to return to the folds of the law and be with their families. While for those who insist on staying in the mountains, we will let them rot there, like the dickens. It is now their choice whether they want to live happily with their families or die miserably and regrettably in the jungles. I have ordered our field units to continue their operations without let-up,” MGEN Visaya added.

MGEN Visaya further said, “We will keep on informing the people particularly their supporters that they are supporting the terrorists, an organization that will destroy their dreams and aspirations. Likewise, big companies and professionals who are giving in to the demands of the NPAs should also stop providing aid to these terrorists. Under the spirit of Bayanihan we will continue converging our efforts with all stakeholders, after all, we are fighting a common enemy who hinders us from bringing peace and development to this part of Mindanao.”
