The Army’s 303rd Infantry Brigade yesterday condemned the latest atrocity perpetrated by New People’s Army rebels, who claimed responsibility for the killing of an off-duty government militiaman in Guihulngan, City, Negros Occidnetal.
The NPA Leonardo Panaligan Command had claimed responsibility for the killing of CAFGU member Rodolfo Yucaran on Sept. 23 in Brgy. Tacpao, Guihulngan City.
Col. Alberto Desoyo, 303rd Infantry Brigade commander, said yesterday “ these terrorist murderers are now in desperate times, killing an unarmed CAFGU member, which clearly violates the provisions of the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect to Human Rights and the International Humanitarian Law.
Desoyo said that Yucaran died from multiple gunshot wounds.
Police investigations showed that the victim was on his way to Sitio Bantayan in Barangay Tacpao, Guihulngan City, on his motorcycle, when he was waylaid, and shot simultaneously by four gunmen.
“I urge the people to condemn this inhumane act by the communist terrorist group. There is no room for terrorism if the intention, really, is to help the poor, to help the people.” Desoyo said.*
