Rebels found getting into abortion
Tagbilaran City (30 December 2005) — TWO communist terrorists who were identified as Homer and Kaila aborted their child because the party doesn’t know about their relationship, thus reports Army Major Leandro Ayop, during the recent Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) at the Bohol Plaza Resort last week.
Major Ayop spoke for Brigadier General Juanito Gomez, commanding general of the Army 302nd Brigade based in Carmen Bohol.
The information was taken, according to Ayop, from the document examination (docex) gathered after the military got hold of a sack full of documents in a raid late November 13 in Bayawahan Sevilla, Bohol.
Aside from voluminous documents, rifles and assorted magazines and bandoliers, the raid on a hide-out, which was leaked by a former rebel fighter who wanted to join the mainstream, also yielded birth control pills.
Other similar mop-up operations of rebel camps abandoned or over-ran by the government forces have also yielded condoms and anti-pregnancy pills, telling yet another tale of how the rebels see relationships detrimental to the organization.
In addition, unconfirmed reports also bare of cases of sexual abuse committed by members of the Communist Party of the Philippines New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) who endure lonely nights away from families while pursuing the protracted war in the country sides.
Military intelligence said a certain “Ka Dexter” has been found guilty of raping comrade guerillas and still roams scot-free. Sources said he could have enjoyed the special treatment being one of the older members of the organization when it started recruiting in 1995 here in Bohol.
The recent docex confirmed earlier reports that the rebels have resorted to anti-life solutions to problems on unwanted pregnancies in the organization.
Even then, 302nd Brigade authorities said its current internal security operations now shift to convincing members of the communist movement to return to the folds of the law by way of face to face dialogs, radio programs and distribution of reading materials. This as the government prioritizes on local peace efforts while dealing with insurgency, said Maj. Ayop.
Believing still that the military action is not a perceived solution in Bohol, military elements have coordinated with the local government units in the conduct of civil-military operations putting the communication lines between groups open.
The move is seen as a palliative solution to the pending anti-terror bill in the Senate and finally hammering a peace accord.
This even with the recent calls of the NPAs to form an alliance with government detractors and anti President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo forces in efforts to topple the administration and derail the local peace efforts. (PIA)
