Joma Sison may be cringing in the comforts of his home in the Netherlands, when this fact was reported to him.
It only shows the statement of the government through President Rodrigo Roa Duterte is true – the Joma Sison led Communist Party of the Philippines- New People’s Army (CPP-NPA)is now a considered a "failed rebellion."

Government considers the recent surrenders of the CPP-NPA fighters and their supporters as a strong indication that they are now convinced that only the government with all its policies can provide them with the necessary means to better their lives and those of their loved ones.

"And we expect the number to taper down as it should be the case, again, others variables remaining constant," the AFP spokesperson said.
