Former guerilla fighter surrenders to authorities in Aurora


BALER, Aurora — A former guerilla fighter voluntary surrendered to authorities in Aurora.

“Ka Totoy” is a former Vice CO of the Regional Yunit Guerilla and a resident of Baler town.

Police Regional Director PBGen. Valeriano De Leon shared that “Ka Totoy” turned-over one M16 rifle and one short magazine for M16A1 with three rounds of ammunition.

De Leon remarked that the continuous surrender of former rebels to the Philippine National Police and Armed Forces of the Philippines is a manifestation of the effectiveness of the whole-of-nation approach to end insurgency.

“This is through the Executive Order No. 70 of our government which institutionalizes the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC) being implemented in the region, as well as the unremitting efforts of Regional Task Force ELCAC,” De Leon said.
