Eastern Mindanao Command Condemns NPA Set-up of Road Blockade

NSFA, Panacan, Davao City – The AFP’s Eastern Mindanao Command condemns the road blockades set-up by the NPA on Sunday, April 3, 2016.

This is a cowardly act for an armed group pretending to fight for the rights of the people. Their action of setting up a road blocks in Barangay Rojales, Carmen, Agusan Del Norte, Impasug-ong, Bukidnon and Talisayan, Misamis Oriental are forms of intimidation and coercion victimizing peace loving people. It is a contradiction of what the CPP-NPA are claiming that they are fighting for the rights of the people. This is a dastardly act of projecting an image of strength at the expense of peace-loving communities. The conduct of road block is a desperate move after the NPA’s series of setbacks as a result of law enforcement operations and withdrawal of support of a number of their members and supporters in Northern and Southern Mindanao. With this, Eastern Mindanao Command will exert its effort to rescue the abducted PNP and Army personnel without compromising the rule of law, respect of human rights and adherence to International Humanitarian Law. Further, in coordination with the PNP, EMC will pursue the filing of appropriate charges against the NPA perpetrators relative to the abovementioned incidents.
