PNP Chief - More than 300 gov't execs continue to pay campaign fees to NPA




The Philippine National Police said they are going to continue to monitor 300 more than 300 national and local government officials who have been included in the Department of the Interior and Local Government's (DILG) watch list for allegedly providing financial support to the Communist Party of the Philippines- New People’s Army (CPP-NPA), PNP chief, Gen. Oscar Albayalde said.
Since the Duterte administration has taken over, one of its mission is to see to it that there will be peace with the enemy of the state that is whether peacefully or not. The Communist Party of the Philippines and its armed wing New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) has not been cooperative, government has called a stop in all its peace negotiations with the communists.

Albayalde said there were 349 local and national government officials allegedly providing support to the CPP-NPA in the form of extortion money and permit to campaign fees.
Sa ngayon (right now) they are just being monitored. We have to get hard evidencepara dito (for this). These are all intelligence information that we get na meron tayong mga nakuhang information (we received information) that they give extortion money to the CPP-NPA kasi sa totoo lang mahirap, parang bribery, mahirap din i-prove na itong taong ito ay siyang nagbigay ng pera (like bribery, it's difficult to prove that these people gave money) because for all you know they will also deny this,” he told reporters in Camp Crame.
Asked if the list will be made public like that of the politicians involved in the trade of illegal drugs, Albayalde said its up to the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary whether he will publicize the names of the politicians or not.
The PNP Chief warned candidates, private individuals ,and juridical entities who willfully donate to the coffers of the enemies of the state of possible criminal liability :
-      violation of RA 10168 or The Terrorism Financing Prevention and Suppression Act of 2012; and
-       the act of giving any amount or item of value to the CPP-NPA is tantamount to disloyalty punishable under the Revised Penal Code.
-       
“If it is proven that the "fee" is made as part of a conspiracy to overthrow the government, the "donor" may be held liable as co-conspirator in the crime of rebellion,” said PNP Chief Albayalde.
The PNP chief said incumbent elective public officials campaigning for reelection remain to be government officials, thus, their culpability in this crime is further aggravated by violation of the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Government Officials.

CPP-NPA is a terrorist organization

Last on December 5, 2017,  President Rodrigo Duterte issued Proclamation 374 declaring the CPP-NPA as a terrorist organization under RA 10168.
The CPP-NPA is listed as a terrorist organization by the United States, New Zealand, European Union, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and the Philippines.
