RPOC condemns atrocities in 2 Mountain Province towns
by PIO release

The chairperson of the Cordillera Regional Peace and Order Council condemned the atrocities done by the New Peoples’ Army to government forces in Bauko and Tadian towns in Mountain Province that resulted in the death of two law enforcers and the wounding of nine others in separate incidents last week.

Baguio City Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan, RPOC-CAR chair, said the fleeing rebels’ use of improvised explosive devices against government forces pursuing them is a violation of prevailing international agreements on hostilities.

Domogan also expressed his sympathies with the families of the two policemen who were killed in the separate encounters, namely Patrolman Wilfredo Padawil of Sagada, Mountain Province and Police Cpl. Marlon Casil of Kibungan, Benguet who were killed in an encounter last March 28 in Sitio Malabagan, Bagnen Proper, Bauko, Mountain Province, and the explosion of a land mine at the boundaries of Bauko and Tadian towns last April 2.

“We want lasting peace to reign in our region. We do not deserve such atrocities that paint a bad image on the peace and order situation in our region,” Domogan said.

He also wished the wounded policemen’s speedy recovery.

Domogan urged civilians to immediately report to authorities the presence of suspicious-looking individuals in their community so police or military could act accordingly.

He said the community’s vigilance will help deter similar incidents from occurring.

The incident has resulted in decision to suspend tourism activities in Bauko.

Mayor Abraham Akilit issued an advisory informing the residents that while hostilities has not ended, tourism has to take a backseat.
