Cagayan strengthens anti-insurgency, criminality drive

Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya (26 October) -- With the increasing incidents of attacks perpetuated by the New People's Army (NPA) rebels in the region, the Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) in Cagayan province recently provided funds for the strengthening of intelligence operations and acquisition of high powered firearms.

Governor Edgar Lara, also the PPOC chair said the initial amount of P250,000 has been allocated to strengthen the government's overall campaign against insurgency.

Lara also vowed to release P50,000 as trust fund for the Public Attorney's Office (PAO) to help prosecute cases filed against police and military who were being lodged with human rights and illegal detention cases after their operation.

Lara also urged various sectors in the region to vigilant and be supportive to the anti-insurgency efforts of the government.

The fund assistance was prompted by Philippine army report showing that the NPAs were on the move in strengthening their mass based support in remote villages in Cagayan through foraging, dialogues, recruitment and organization of sectoral groups for the past 18 months.

The report added that during the first two quarters of 2006, NPAs committed burning of the military's patrol base, harassment of the Army's intelligence safehouse, raid of small military detachments and a series of encounters and killing of a civilian whom they earlier abducted, all in Cagayan province.
