P15 ex-rebels
get assistance

Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. and Brig. Gen. Jon Aying, 303rd Infantry Brigade commander, led the distribution of P750,000 in livelihood assistance to 15 former New People's Army rebels, yesterday.

The group had earlier received P20,000 from the national government and the provincial government of Negros Occidental, from the Department of Interior and Local Government, Provincial Peace Integration and Development Unit action officer Ma. Lina Sanogal said during the orientation for Local Government Unit Partners on Comprehensive Local Integration Program for former NPA members in Talisay City Thursday.

Each of the 15 ex-rebels got P50,000 for the livelihood projects they proposed to the DILG.

In January, the 15 former rebels got P15,000 each from the Office of the Presidential Adviser on Peace Process, on top of P5,000 they received last year from Negros Occidental provincial government.

DILG provincial officer Maria Joy Maredith Madayag and Sanogal also assisted Maranon and Aying in the distribution of livelihood assistance to former rebels.*GPB
