The Leonardo Panaligan Command (LPC) of the New People's Army rejected the offer of jobs and housing by President Rodrigo Duterte, if they surrender.
In a statement he issued, Ka JB Regalado, LPC spokesperson, dismissed the offer of Duterte as plain and simple deception.
In his visit to the wake of policemen killed in the Guihulngan ambush, Duterte said he will give jobs to NPA members who will surrender, that would include being soldiers after undergoing training, land, and a house. They can also keep their guns as souvenirs, he said.
Regalado maintained that the NPA will not surrender.
He also slammed the “bounty hunting” and the Comprehensive Local Intergration Program of the Armed Forces of the Philippines in Negros, spearheaded by Maj. Gen. Jon Aying, 3rd Infantry Division commander, and supported by Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr.
Regalado also accused the AFP , PNP and the Revolutionary Proletarian Army-Alex Boncayao Brigade of being behind the series of killings of civilians in Guihulngan City, Negros Oriental.
The killings in Guihulngan City, following the ambush of six policemen as claimed by LPC, alarmed progressive organizations in the Diocese of San Carlos, who are now calling for an indepth investigation of the murder incidents.*GPB
