CPP Founder Joma Sison Humingi Ng Tulong Sa CHR Ng Mapatay Ang Mga Tauhang NPA Terrorist Sa Batangas!


Communist Party of the Philippines founding chairman Jose Maria Sison on Wednesday ask the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) for help over the deaths of 14 NPA terrorists in Nasugbu, Batangas.

"Human rights organizations should be able to go there and investigate whether there has been a real fight between the New People's Army and the reactionary army," said Sison.

He warned that there are many reports of killings in the country "and there are quick accusations the victims are NPA rebels but in fact they are civilians. We have the ring of falsity and lies coming from the Duterte regime. We should be careful and try to investigate the veracity of all these reports."

Military and police earlier said 5 NPA guerrillas were killed in Sitio Pinamuntasan, Barangay Aga in Nasugbu while another 9 rebels were killed in Sitio Batulao, Barangay Kaylaway. The government side reported five injuries. The injured rebels and government troops were brought to nearby hospitals.

Brigadier General Arnulfo Marcelo Burgos Jr., commander of the 202nd Infantry Brigade, said government troops recovered 12 high-powered firearms from the encounter site.

The military believes that the fatalities are remnants of the same NPA group that suffered heavy casualties during an encounter with the elements of the 730th Combat Group under Maj. Engelberto Nioda last November 20, 2017 at Baragay Utod.

News of the encounter came following President Rodrigo Duterte's decision to end peace talks with the communist movement, saying hostilities had continued during negotiations. The president also blasted the NPA anew for carrying out an ambush in Talakad, Bukidnon that left a 4-month-old baby dead, saying it was an "intentional" act.
