Sorsogon Rally Decried the Killing of 2 Former Rebels



CAMP ELIAS ANGELES, Pili, Camarines Sur-Former rebels carrying placards and posters crowded the main streets of Sorsogon City, last Tuesday, February 25 to strongly condemn the killing of rebel returnees staged by the Communist Terrorist Group (CTG).


The indignation rally also denounced all forms of violence, and atrocities committed by the CTG members.


It can be recalled that Antonio Benzon and Michael Donaire both former rebels were liquidated by the armed insurgents few days ago in Casiguran and Barcelona town, Sorsogon province respectively.


According to the protesters, the killing of former rebels who were already considered as non-combatants is a violation of the International Humanitarian Law (IHL).


Joint Task Force Bicolandia (JTFB) under MGEN FERNANDO T TRINIDAD AFP urges all Bicolanos to be more vigilant and to religiously participate in the campaign to end the Local Communist Armed Conflict as part of their social responsibility to attain genuine peace in Bicol region.


The JTFB leadership also encouraged the remaining CTG members to stop causing threat and suggesting fear against their fellow Bicolanos; and for their supporters to rethink in helping this communist group whose objectives were patently that the 5-decade armed struggle remains futile, whereas instead of helping the people build a community conducive for peaceful living, it turns on the contrary.


Furthermore, the JTFB leader emphasized that the government is more than ready to welcome the CTG members who will decide to return to the folds of the law especially now that they can avail numerous programs under the implementation of Executive Order No. 70 (EO 70) or the Whole-of-Nation approach to attain sustainable peace and to end Local Communist Armed Conflict.
