NPA Rebels Surrender to Philippine Government Troops
« on: November 12, 2010, 05:46:57 AM »
Forty-nine communist New People’s Army (NPA) members, including seven leaders, yielded to the government troops from Oct. 1 to date following intensified military operations and nation-building activities all over the country.

Army spokesman Col. Antonio Parlade said on Wednesday the most recent was the surrender of an NPA leader identified as Ronald Balko Pundong, alias Brian, a former medical and team leader of Team Abe, Squad Premira, Platoon Mazda, Guerrilla Front 71, Far Southern Mindanao Regional Committee, in Sarangani province on Oct. 23.

Reports reaching the Philippine Army headquarters revealed that Pundong, plagued by his conscience, opted to surrender upon realizing that the organization he considered as enemy is the same one that helped his wife recovered from illness.

Last Oct. 7, the Peace and Development Team of the 73rd Infantry Battalion conducted a medical and dental civic action program (MEDCAP) in Sarangani province which helped civilians in the area, including Pundong’s wife.

Meanwhile, another surrenderee further exposed the NPA’s continued recruitment of minors in the organization. A certain Kitkity Suyam y Laos, alias Ronnie, 24, a regular member of the Kometing Larangan Gerilya (KLG) Marko, Ilocos-Cordillera Regional Committee (ICRC), revealed that he was recruited by the group of communist leader Lupito Wigit Dawala, alias Tangkib, way back in 2003. Laos was only 17 years old then. - PNA
