WESCOM Condemns Murder of Former NPA Rebel in South Palawan

Published: Thursday, 07 December 2017

Camp General Artemio Ricarte, Puerto Princesa City -- Western Command condemns the killing of NPA surrenderer named JunJun Lacaran @JASON/ ARMAN who was shot dead by an unidentified assailant utilizing a short firearm around 10am on 07 December 2017 in Sitio Cabangaan, Barangay Samariñana, Brooke's Point, Palawan.

This Command condemns to the higest degree the killing of their own who only wished to live a new life with his family and loved ones.

The surrenderer was a member of Indigenous People who was recruited by the NPA terrorists with false promises. When he realized that life was more difficult in the mountains, he decided to return to the community to have a peaceful life, only to be murdered by his former comrades.

The murderous act committed by the NPA bespeaks only of their treachery and the terrorism they conduct by sowing fears to the society contrary to what they claim as a "pro-people" organization.

The treacherous act gives justice to the recent pronouncement by President Duterte that the NPA is a terrorist group.

The NPA criminal's killing of their own manifests their selfish agenda by preventing a new and good life to come upon their former members who decided to return to the fold of law and be reintegrated in the mainstream of society.

Their number and capability have been dwindling away due to the surrender of 79 members since 2013 and capture of more than 30 high powered firearms and other war materials that resulted from the focused and civil military operations of Team WESCOM.

Meanwhile, WESCOM shall continue with its relentless fight against communist terrorism and other threats in its Area of Responsibility. ###
