PHILIPPINES: NPA carnage in Bukidnon bared

Gonzales looking into new mass purging by CPP-NPA

14 May 2006

NATIONAL Security Adviser Norberto Gonzales has started investigating the new wave of mass purging being carried out by the Communist Party of the Philippines.

Gonzales flew to Cagayan de Oro Saturday to talk with the relatives of some of the slain militants and those who have mysteriously vanished in Mindanao during the past few months. The Secretary expressed confidence that he would be able to gather information that could help authorities solve some of the slayings, which he believes are part of the continuous purging ordered by CPP founder Jose Ma. Sison.

Gonzales, also the chairperson of the Partido Demokratiko Sosyalista ng Pilipinas (PDSP), said there are indications that the underground armed communist movement has been killing members of the New Peopleâs Army and other militant groups in a bid to cleanse its ranks of infiltrators. He said Sison ordered the purge because he suspects that the NPA, the armed wing of the CPP, and other left-leaning groups have been infiltrated by government agents.

While this may be true, the PDSP leader said the CPP leadership should not execute its members on mere suspicion. He likened the purging to the mass executions carried out by the CPP in the 70s and 80s where thousands of its members suspected to be deep-penetration agents were killed.

âThis practice only shows the ruthlessness of communist leaders and their total disregard of human life,â? Gonzales said.

Only last Thursday, two Bayan Muna leaders were gunned down in Echague, Isabela. The killings were blamed on the military, but Armed Forces officials denied any involvement in the twin slays. Also last week, the family of Philip Limjoco, an alleged NPA member, was reported missing by his family.

Bayan Muna claimed that 91 of its members have been killed since 2001.

PHILIPPINES: Batasan 5 to land back in jailâGonzales

12 May 2006

THE party-list solons who belong to the extreme left - Bayan Muna, Anak-Pawis & Gabriela, will land back in jail.

This was according to National Security Adviser Norberto Gonzales, who yesterday expressed confidence that the government will be able to prove its case once the new rebellion complaint against the so-called Batasan 5 is filed in court.

Gonzales said the new information against the lawmakers is ready and will be filed soon. This time, he said the government will focus on proving that the party-list representatives are active members of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP)-New Peopleâs Army (NPA). The five lawmakers were earlier charged with being part of the grand conspiracy between the communists and rebel soldiers to topple the Arroyo administration.

âThey should not rejoice yet. They will be jailed again soon,â? Gonzales said upon returning from Saudi Arabia, where President Macapagal-Arroyo had a four-day state visit.

Gonzales, also the chairperson of the Partido Demokratiko Sosyalista ng Pilipinas, maintained that the case against the Batasan 5 is strong since there is sufficient evidence to ensure their conviction.

At the same time, lawyer Jose âNonongâ? Ricafrente, PDSP spokesperson and head of the legal department, said the Batasan 5 âcan be arrested by the authorities without the benefit of a warrant even before the new rebellion complaint against them is filedâ? because the case against them, rebellion, is a continuing crime.

âThey can be arrested without warrant at anytime because a rebel is a rebel even in his sleep. Rebellion is the only crime in our statute books described as a continuing crime where the principle of hot pursuit has been properly applied,â? Ricafrente said.

Gonzalesâ partymate made this statement as he lambasted Bayan Muna Rep. Satur Ocampo for calling the PDSP chairperson â?a top legal ignoramusâ? and âanti-due process.â?

âWho is Mr. Ocampo to call Secretary Gonzales a âlegal ignoramusâ? Instead of rejoicing prematurely and arrogantly calling people names, the Batasan 5 should be thankful that they enjoyed the safety and comfort of the House and are now out of confinement,â? Ricafrente said.

He advised Ocampo to âbetter reserve his punches and prepare for his defense in the proper forum.â?
