Female NPA rebel quits futile armed struggle

The government offer of Peace is open to everybody in the armed struggle as long as they would lay down their arms and submit to the government authorities.
This what happened to an active rebel fighter of the New People’s Army (NPA), Platoon Glenn Marie Tamboong (GMT) who surrendered her M16 rifle on Monday to the Army's 2nd Infantry “Jungle Fighter” Division in Barangay Batongbuhay in Sablayan, Occidental Mindoro.

“The female fighter, who is known as alias “Laura” in the underground movement, operates in the northern areas of Mindoro Island as a "lead extortionist,” according to Lt. Col. Mario Lito Retirva, Commanding Officer of the 2ID’s 76 Infantry Battalion (76IB).
Alias “Laura”, of the New People’s Army (NPA) Platoon Glenn Marie Tamboong (GMT)  the terrorists' lead extortionist, gives up the rebel movement’s futile armed struggle and surrenders her M16 rifle to the Army's 2nd Infantry “Jungle Fighter” Division (2ID) in Barangay Batongbuhay, Sablayan, Occidental Mindoro (PNA)

Retriva said as per Laura’s revelation to the government authorities “the NPAs are making false promises to cover up the rampant corruption within the organization" which is among the major reasons why she quit the futile armed struggle.
Laura also revealed that the NPA has been very active in recruiting and encouraging the youth to abandon their studies and their families and join the rebel group’s armed movement against the established Philippine government.

“The statement of alias Laura supported the security sector’s claims during the recent series of public hearings at the Senate,” Retirva said.
With the new development, Col. Antonio R. Lastimado, Commander of the 203rd Infantry Brigade, which has operational jurisdiction over Mindorocalls out for the remaining rebels in hiding to surrender to government authorities.

"Lay down your arms, return to mainstream society and enjoy the benefits and grants provided under the government’s Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program," Lastimado urged the NPA terrorist rebels.

"This (Laura’s) surrender is a clear indicator that the NPA terrorists’ senseless armed struggle is close to its end as shown by the influx of surrenders across the different provinces in the country,” he added.
