Philippine Army calls for vigilance

CAMP MELCHOR F. DELA CRUZ, GAMU, Isabela (September 26) -- In the wake of sporadic attacks on cell sites of a telecommunication firm in the Bicol region, a ranking official of the Philippine Army's 5th Infantry Division stressed the need for a round-the-clock vigilance among the civilian population to thwart any evil attempt to seize or destroy public utilities or infrastructure facilities.

Col. Maximo Caro, 5ID Chief of Staff, said that even the ordinary citizen could help the police and military in safeguarding or securing vital installations by being vigilant on the moves of suspicious characters in their own localities.

"Report to the military or police the presence of personalities whom you suspect is going to commit a crime or devious act," advised Caro.

Caro said the recent bombing of the cell cites of Globe, a private telecommunication company, was an evil act of terrorists which could have been prevented by the civilian sectors' vigilance. The terrorists bombed the Globe cell cites after the firm failed to pay revolutionary taxes demanded by terrorists.

He admitted that the government's relentless campaign against all forms of terrorism cannot succeed without public commitment in this struggle through sustained vigilance.

The military and police need the civilian sector as their partner in warding off terroristic acts that undermine peace and progress of a given community, he said. (PIA Isabela) [top]
