Alleged ranking CPP-NPA exec captured in Bohol

From GMA News (Jun 19): Alleged ranking CPP-NPA exec captured in Bohol

Government security forces have captured a suspected ranking official of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army in Bohol.

In a statement, the Philippine Army's 47th Infantry Battalion identified the suspect as
Pedro Lumantas, also known as Dadoy, Andoy, and Didoy, the alleged Deputy Secretary of the Bohol Party Committee, the Komiteng Rehiyon Southern Bohol.

Lumantas was captured by combined military and police operatives by virtue of arrest warrant for multiple murder charges while he was getting medical treatment for a gunshot wound at Ramiro Hospital in Tagbiliran City last June 16.

Lumantas has since been turned over to the police for proper disposition.

Authorities said Lumantas was allegedly involved in "a series of atrocities" in Cebu and Bohol, including the recent merciless killings of two members of the Citizen Armed Force Geographical Unit (CAFGU) last April and May.
