PIA Press Release

4ID sets anti-terror measure, disallows PUJs inside camp

by Rutchie Cabahug-Aguhob

Cagayan de Oro City (18 October) -- Passenger jeepneys will no longer be allowed inside Camp Edilberto Evangelista, home of the Philippine Army’s 4th Infantry (Diamond) Division (4ID) located in Patag, Cagayan de Oro City.

“We are enforcing this new camp regulation considering the safety of our personnel and those living inside the camp and because of intelligence reports that attacks on military and other government installations will be carried out by the terrorists,” Brig. Gen. Jose T. Barbieto, 4ID Commanding General, said.

Following the models of Camp Emilio Aguinaldo, home of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) in Quezon City and Fort Andres Bonifacio, home of the Philippine Army in Taguig City, these passenger jeepneys will be allowed only up to the main gate of Camp Evangelista, he said. Prior to this, the jeepneys’ prescribed route covered the camp’s main roads.

To help alleviate the inconvenience brought about by this new anti-terror measure, however, 4ID will be assigning military vehicles to shuttle commuters within the military installation.

Citing the recent terror bombings that rocked Central Mindanao and the experience of the 6ID, PA headquarters in Awang, Maguindanao which was attacked by foreign suicide terrorists in 1997, Barbieto stressed the need to enforce stricter measures in 4ID to prevent similar attacks.

He said the spate of bombings serves as another wakeup call that terror never sleeps and so the fight against terrorists must be relentless in terms of the vigilance of the people.

In fact, he said, the recent attacks only served to strengthen the Government’s resolve to wipe out evil as the public is assured that the authorities are on target and it is only a matter of time before the terrorists/bombers are brought to justice.

Barbieto then appealed for the cooperation of all those affected by the enforcement of the camp regulations to be with him in the campaign against terrorism. (PIA 10) [top]
