CPP corrects Bato: NPA not involved in kidnapping

Although belated, the CPP would like to correct PNP chief Ronaldo dela Rosa regarding his baseless claims the New People’s Army (NPA) is involved in
kidnapping.

Dela Rosa made the claims last February 26 when he presented to the public a certain Donato Jacob whom he claimed is involved in a kidnapping case last December. Without providing proof, dela Rosa insisted that this Jacob is a member of the NPA.

Ka Joma Sison has already promptly dismissed dela Rosa’s claims as ‘fake news’. Indeed, the NPA does not know of this Jacob.

Dela Rosa made the baseless claims of kidnapping against the NPA then, with an overacting imagination, linked this to Duterte’s PR-campaign to depict the CPP
and NPA as terrorists.

Dela Rosa, however, apparently knows for a fact that the NPA does not engage in criminal activities. On the same occasion, he appeared to be in disbelief that an NPA member is involved in kidnapping-for-ransom: “Meron silang (NPA) kidnapping, pero never may ransom” apparently referring to instances when policemen or soldiers are captured in encounters but later released.

As a revolutionary people’s army, the NPA rejects kidnapping-for-ransom and other criminal activities. This policy continues to be observed strictly.

Dela Rosa knows fully well that it is the members of the AFP and PNP who are often involved in kidnapping and other criminal syndicates. In fact, on the above mentioned occasion, he presented another kidnapping suspect who happened to be a former soldier of the AFP.
