Declare rebels persona non grata, DILG advises LGUs
by DILG release

The Department of the Interior and Local Government lauded the growing number of local government units that have declared the Communist Party of the Philippines-National People’s Army-National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF) as persona non grata and encouraged others to do the same.

Sec. Eduardo M. Año said the declaration by the LGUs is a significant victory for the government’s drive to extinguish communist terrorism and the groups that work behind it.

“Declaring CPP-NPA-NDF as persona non grata is a bold move and we commend them for their support to President Duterte and the national government’s efforts to rid our country of these communist-terrorist groups,” Año said.

He said this is timely, with the upcoming midterm elections, because this means that the NPA would not be able to intimidate voters in these areas to vote for their preferred candidates.

“The government cannot do this alone. The LGUs declaring the CPP-NPA-NDF as persona non grata is an assurance that we have allies in this war against insurgency,” he said.

He said that as persona non grata in various LGUs, the CPP-NPA-NDF’s chances of recruiting new members and acquiring strength and financial leverage get slimmer, giving the government and its forces an advantage.

“The recruitment style of the CPP-NPA-NDF revolves around the poorest communities of the country which they can easily lure for their cause. As persona non grata, they cannot continue growing their numbers and territory  as makes it easy for the long arm of the law to corner them,” Año said.

The DILG chief said the DILG is optimistic that the number of LGUs declaring CPP-NPA-NDF as persona non grata will continue to rise as the government is relentless in its efforts to end insurgency in the country.
