Active CTG Member, Surrenders in Quezon



CAMP ELIAS ANGELES, Pili, Camarines Sur-The all-out campaign of the government against the Communist Terrorist Group (CTG) continues to yield positive results as another communist insurgent surrendered to the government Tuesday, January 14.


Johnro Asis AKA Jonel, 20 years old surrendered to the joint elements of 96th Infantry Battalion (96IB), 85th Infantry Battalion (85IB), Lopez Municipal Police Station and 2nd Quezon Provincial Mobile Force Company (2QPMFC) at Barangay Esperanza Ilaya, Lopes town in Quezon province.


It was learned that Asis, who is a member of Squad Uno, Platoon 1, Larangan 1, Komiteng Probinsya 1 of Bicol Regional Party Committee (BRPC) escaped from his group to seek help from government troops.


He also turned in a CZ rifle with four magazines and 159 rounds of ammunition.


His surrender comes after two armed encounters ensued between the government troops and CTG members in Camarines Norte province where a high-ranking CTG leader was killed and high-powered firearms were recovered.


Following his surrender, Asis will now be assisted by the military to be enrolled in the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) where he will receive appropriate cash assistance to help him reestablish his life.


Joint Task Force Bicolandia (JTFB) under MGEN FERNANDO T TRINIDAD AFP underscored that the military is committed to bring the armed CTGs who opted to continue threatening the peace and stability of the region on bended knees by enforcing full military force against them.


Furthermore, he once again encouraged the communist terrorists to follow the footsteps of the snowballing surrenderees who availed the government’s programs intended for them and are now enjoying a more peaceful life with their loved ones.
