MANILA, Philippines – Ipinag-utos ni Pangulong Benigno Aquino III na itaas ang halaga ng reward money sa sinumang makapagbibigay ng impormasyon sa pinagtataguanng mga itinuturing na“high-profile fugitives” sa bansa.
“The President is displeased with the lack of progress in arresting high-profile fugitives. In order to assist the authorities in their task of capturing these fugitives, the President has ordered the following,” pahayag ni Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda.
Umaasa ang Department of Interior and Local Government na makatutulong ang ginawang pagtataas ng pabuya upang mapabilis ang paghuli sa mga taong may outstanding warrant of arrest.
“Umaasa po tayo na ang dagdag na pabuya ay makakatulong. Hindi natin sinasabi na ang pabuya ay iyon lang ang dahilan,” pahayag ni DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo.
Ang mga itinuturing na mga high profile fugitive ay sina Jovito Palparan, na mula P1M piso ay itinaas na sa P2M piso.
Sina Joel Reyes, Mario Reyes, Delfin Lee at Ruben Ecleo Jr. naman ay pawang may tig-P2M reward money sa ulo.
Ang mga lider ng Communist Party of the Philippines-New Peoples Army (CPP-NPA) na sina Benito Tiamzon at Jorge Madlos ay parehong may halos P6M piso pabuya sa sinumang makapapagtuturo ng kanilang pinagtataguan.
Ayon pa sa kalihim, iniutos na rin ng Pangulo na doblehin ang kanilang effort sa paghahanap sa mga naturang kriminal. (Ito Ang Balita ni Bernard Dadis/Marje Navarro, UNTV News)
MANILA, Philippines—The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) has called on the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) to turn over members involved in the Masbate mine blast.
After the CPP-NPA took responsibility for the incident, DILG Secretary Eduardo Año said the group should be held accountable for the death of football player Kieth Absalon and his cousin Novlen Absalon.
“Now that the CPP-NPA has accepted full responsibility for the senseless murder, it now becomes their duty to turn over the terrorists responsible for the deaths so that justice maybe served to their families and loved ones,” he said in a statement. Año also assured the safety of the suspects while undergoing trial.
“The ends of justice require that those responsible must be held accountable for their crimes against the people under the laws of the Republic of the Philippines,” he said.

MANILA, Philippines—The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) will file criminal charges against members of the New People’s Army (NPA) involved in the Masbate mine blast.
This was after the Communist Party of the Philippines and the New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) took “full responsibility for the tragedy”.
In a statement, AFP Spokesperson MGen. Edgardo Arevalo reiterated that the use of anti-personnel landmines — which is prohibited in the Philippines under the Mine Ban Treaty — is a war crime.
“We will continue to work vigorously with the PNP in the filing of criminal cases against the murderers and the violators of Republic Act 9851 for the CTG’s leadership who directed the wanton killing of hapless non-combatant civilians using land mines,” he said.
The NPA has planted an improvised explosive device in Brgy. Anas, Masbate City last Sunday (June 6) which killed football player Kieth Absalon, his cousin Nolven Absalon, and injured others.
CPP information officer Marco Valbuena, in a statement said the CPP-NPA expresses their deep remorse over the untimely and unnecessary deaths.
“The entire CPP and NPA take full responsibility for the tragedy. There is no justification for the aggravation this has caused the Absalon family,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Makabayan Bloc condemned the said incident and has called it a violation of international and humanitarian law.
“We condemn the military action by a unit of the NPA in Masbate City that caused their death and injuries to others for violating international humanitarian law. Our commitment to human rights binds us to condemn any and all acts that harm or kill unarmed civilians, non-combatants, and protected persons in situations of armed conflict,” it said.

MANILA, Philippines – Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Guillermo Eleazar on Tuesday directed all police units to be on alert for possible attacks by the Communist Party of the Philippines’ armed wing, the New People’s Army (NPA) following a series of attacks allegedly perpetrated by the group in Bicol and Quezon areas.
In a statement, Eleazar said the three separate attacks in Masbate City, Legazpi City and Buenavista town in Quezon are “clear indications that an order was issued to the NPA to step up their attacks to project strength amid the series of mass surrender of communist rebels and their supporters.”
“I have already ordered all police units and our personnel to be alert on possible NPA attacks in their respective AORs (Areas of Responsibility),” he said.
“I also expect police commanders to intensify the monitoring and intelligence-gathering against this communist armed group,” he added.
In Masbate City, a college football player and his uncle died in a roadside bombing and subsequent gun attack allegedly by the NPA.
In Legazpi City, four civilians, including a lawyer, were injured when communist NPA rebels purportedly ambushed a group of policemen who responded on the burning of a telecom cellsite.
In Buenavista, Quezon, a militiaman was killed while another one was injured when communist rebels allegedly ambushed a group of government forces who were on their way back from a gift-giving activity.
“Itong mga nangyaring ito ay indikasyon ng isang utos mula sa mataas na opisyal ng CPP-NPA-NDF na palakasin ang kanilang pag-atake. Kaya dapat lang na maging handa tayo at always on a defensive mode to prevent any of their plan,” Eleazar said.
The PNP chief said that part of his instruction is to ensure that the police station defense plan is activated especially in areas where the CPP-NPA-NDF are known to operate.
He added that chiefs of police should also coordinate with the local military forces in their areas for augmentation of personnel in case of any eventuality.
