She was arrested last  Oct. 14, 2019, but was only announced by the military on Wednesday (Oct. 16, 2019).
Gina Ciano has a standing warrant of arrest for murder with a PHP200,000 recommended bail issued in 2017 by a regional court in Isulan, Sultan Kudarat,  Lt. Col. Roberto C. Go Jr, the commander of the Army’s 37th Infantry Battalion said.
Lt. Col.  Go led the arrest operation in Barangay Sangay, Kalamansig, Sultan Kudarat where Ciano’s house was located.

Ciano, who did not resist arrest, was unarmed when the search warrant was presented by law enforcers.
It was said that Ciano was also a member of the Center for Lumad Advocacy Networking Services (CLANS), a white area committee of the NPA’s Guerrilla Front 73 operating in the hinterlands of South Cotabato and Sultan Kudarat.

The Guerilla Front 73 is under the Far South Mindanao Regional Party Committee of the NPA in the Soccsksargen region.

Ciano is now detained at the jail facility of the Sultan Kudarat Provincial Police Office in Isulan.
