SPARU leader, political organizer yield


Two alleged rebels belonging to the New People’s Army Special Partisan Unit (SPARU) and organizing team surrendered to the Regional Mobile Force Battalion 6 in Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental, regional police spokesperson, Lt. Col. Joem Malong, said last night.

Malong identified them only through their aliases as Ka Morgan, a SPARU squad leader, and also affiliated with the Armadong Unit Pampropaganda of the NPA South West Front, and Ka Pia, also a member of South West Front SPARU Political Organizing Team.

Both rebel personalities, who are in their 50s, surrendered without firearms on Sept. 5 to the 604th Company of RPSB 6, Malong said.

Exhaustion, deception and living miserably in the mountains have driven the two NPA rebels to abandon the armed struggle, she added.

Malong also said they are expected to avail of cash and livelihood assistance under the Enhanced Comprehensive and Local Integration Program of the Department of Interior and Local Government.

Twenty-six former members of the NPA Militia ng Bayan, who surrendered to the 94th Infantry Battalion in Guihulngan City, Negros Oriental, already availed of P260,000 worth of livelihood assistance from the Department of Trade and Industry.*
