Suspected NPA fighter falls

From the Visayan Daily Star (Mar 11): Suspected NPA fighter falls

Another suspected New People's Army red fighter, allegedly one of those who participated in the attack and burning of a military outpost in northern Negros, was apprehended Saturday by the police in Brgy.Punao, San Carlos City, Negros Occidental.

Fermin Vaflor Jr., alias Ka Jun Jun Alles, was arrested by virtue of arrest warrants for arson and robbery with homicide issued by San Carlos Regional Trial Court Judge Kathrine Go.

Supt. William Senoron, director of the Regional Intelligence Unit 6, yesterday said Vaflor, who used to be a member of the TMX platoon of the Northern Negros Front, was denied bail by the court.

The arrest of Vaflor, who had been lying low after the issuance of an arrest warrant against him and his comrades, for the raid of the Polopangyan detachment and the summary execution of its commander, SSgt. Efraim Bagonoc, came almost three weeks after Joel Danioso, an alleged commander of the NPA Yunit Militia, was also arrested for similar offenses in Brgy. Winaswasan, Calatrava.

After an arrest warrant was issued against him, Senoron said, Vaflor was re-assigned to the South West Front of the NPA. Since he could not adjust to his new assignment, Vaflor went inactive in the revolutionary movement, returned to Brgy. Punao, San Carlos City and worked as a truck driver, before his arrest.

Police Inspectors Rannie Bantolio and Efren Yu-ing led the combined police teams that included the Regional Intelligence Unit 6, in the arrest of Vaflor, who has been turned over to the San Carlos City police jail for detention.
