From the Mindanao Times (Jun 28): ‘NPA rebel’ apprehended

AN ALLEGED member of New People’s Army (NPA) was captured by the 8th Infantry Battalion in San Fernando, Bukidnon last week.
1Lt. Erwin Bugarin, the civil-military operations officer (CMO) of 8th IB, told TIMES yesterday that the troops sighted a group of civilians while conducting security patrol. The group was acting suspiciously and they appeared to be laying something in the area.

They then ordered the civilians to stopped and started frisking them. They later identified one of the men as a known rebel. They found in his possession ammunition, blasting caps, detonating cord and an improvised power supply in the suspect’s possession.
The captured rebel was already turned over to the San Fernando Municipal Police Station for proper disposition and filling of criminal case. It’s not clear what happened to the rest of the group.

“We will perform our task at hand to accomplish our mission in accordance to the rule of law, human rights and International Humanitarian Law, thus, promoting peace that is just and lasting,” he added.
