Put more pressure
on Reds, Army urged


The Army’s 302nd Infantry Brigade has been ordered to exert more pressure on New People’s Army rebels operating in the 2nd and 3rd districts of Negros Oriental, and the 6th district in Negros Occidental, to address the armed communist conflict as soon as possible.

The order was issued by Maj. Gen. Eric Vinoya, 3rd Infantry Division commander, to Col. Noel Baluyan and battalion commanders under his command, during his visit to the 302nd IB headquarters on Wednesday at Camp Leon Kilat in Tanjay City.

This was also after the arrest on Feb 8 of Reynaldo Camacho in Bohol, who used to serve as head of the Regional Finance Tax Implementing Group of the Komiteng Rehiyonal Negros, Cebu-Bohol and Siquijor.

The apprehension of Camacho and his wife, Carmelita, yielded three guns and two explosives, among others, according to the military and police.

The 47th Infantry Battalion stationed in Bohol is under the supervision of the 3ID.

In a dialog with the 302nd Infantry Brigade personnel, Vinoya, who formerly served as Joint Task Force Negros commander, took notice of the brigade’s achievements, expressed his hope to see similar or better outcomes, during his stint as 3ID commander.

Baluyan supervises the internal security operations of the 11th and 15th Infantry Battalions in Negros Island.*
