10 NPA rebels surrender in South Cotabato




And it seems they continue to flock to the government side.
The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has reported that ten (10)more New People’s Army (NPA) rebels which includes three (3) unit leaders have surrendered to government authorities in South Cotabato.

Because of the series of negotiations the rebels decided to voluntarily surrender along with their firearms after reportedly getting tired of their uncertain cause, this according to Lt. Co. Lino Capellan, the spokesperson of the Police Regional Office (PRO)-12.

The returnees signified their intent to surrender last June 15, in Sitio Datal Kadi, Barangay Tasiman, Lake Sebu town in South Cotabato.
“They were processed and later received by personnel from the South Cotabato Police Provincial Office through assistance from concerned local officials,” Capellan said in a statement.
The process of surrender was supported by the PRO-12’s intelligence unit, Philippine National Police intelligence group and Special Action Force, National Intelligence Coordinating Agency, and the Army’s 5th Special Forces Battalion.

The former rebels includes three-unit officers, a community teacher, and six members of field units under the NPA’s Guerilla Front 73 (Musa)-Far South Mindanao Region.
The returnees also surrendered with their arms which includes an improvised M203 grenade launcher loaded with a 40mm rifle grenade, a homemade M16 rifle, three caliber .357 revolvers, a Springfield caliber .45 pistol, a caliber .22 revolver, a homemade single-shot caliber .45 pistol and a homemade single-shot caliber .357 pistol.
