3 Ifugao towns denounce rebels
by Marcelo B. Lihgawon / PIA

TINOC, Ifugao – Three municipalities of the province passed resolutions showing dissatisfaction about the presence of communist terrorist groups (CTGs) and other illegally-armed groups in their communities.

Members of the Sangguniang Bayan of Hungduan passed Resolution 2019-044 declaring the CTGs as persona non grata and strongly opposing the entry and access of other illegally armed groups in all barangays of the municipality.

The resolution stated that since the early 1990s, the united efforts of the municipal and barangay officials and stakeholders have averted communist insurgency and established the municipality as a peaceful and non-violent town.

“The unlawful activities perpetrated by the communist insurgents who created an atmosphere of fear, suspicion, tension, and terror among the residents, tourists, and visitors hampered the economic growth and development in the region and stagnated social and economic developments in the locality,” the resolution added.

The SB of Tinoc passed Resolution 514-2019 denouncing the presence of CTG to uphold peace and order in the municipality.

Concerned agencies said reports of CTG sightings in the different barangays called for the passage of the resolution to avoid further encounters and maintain the peaceful situation in the community.

In Mayoyao, the Municipal Peace and Order Council (MPOC), Municipal Anti-drug Abuse Council (Madac), and the Liga ng mga Punong Barangay (LMPB) approved a resolution prohibiting the entry of Communist Party of the Philippines-New Peoples’ Army (CPP-NPA), National Democratic Front, and other lawless elements in the municipality.

The body considers the entry of CPP-NPA in the municipality as a threat to the peaceful living of the community for it will draw the Armed Forces of the Philippines to come as well, which could bring forth encounters between the two forces. 

“The municipality does not want to recollect and experience again the gruesome incidents brought by the clash of two opposing forces where civilians became victims and in constant danger,” the resolution stated.

In support to the joint-resolution of the MPOC, Madac, and LMPB, the sangguniang bayan passed a resolution denouncing the presence and activities of CTGs to preserve the peace and order situation in Mayoyao.
