BURAUEN, Leyte – Fifteen
(15) former rebels who surrendered during last year’s focused military
campaign against insurgents received the so called Basic Immediate
Assistance (BIA) amounting to P10,000.00 in a ceremony held at Brgy.
Roxas, Burauen, Leyte on Aug. 23, 2012.
Lt. Col. Joel Alejandro
Nacnac, Commanding Officer of the 19th Infantry (Commando) Battalion
disclosed that the BIA recipients were former members of Front
Committee-Leyte (FCL), the infamous New Peoples Army group operating
in the province of Leyte.
“These FR’s surrendered to
19th IB because they want to live in peace with their family. Indeed,
they have made the right decision, because the Philippine Army and the
Provincial Government of Leyte are sincere with the peace and
development stance so that remnants of NPA rebels fully abandon the
armed struggle”, Lt. Col. Nacnac said.
Each FR has its own story to
tell. A certain Peter said that he and his comrades would keep on
moving from place to place in the hinterlands of Leyte to evade
government forces. Unfortunately, he and a comrade were arrested in a
checkpoint operation of the Philippine Army. Likewise, a certain
Jocelyn, former NPA courier experienced hardships in the underground
movement that is why she decided to surrender to 19IB last year.
In behalf of the former
rebels, Miguel Payod extended his gratitude to the Provincial
Government of Leyte under the leadership of Gov. Carlos Jericho
Petilla, to the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office
spearheaded by the Mrs. Clotilde Malatbalat and to the Philippine Army
who worked together for the reintegration of the FR’s into the
mainstream of the society.
Last year, a total of
P685,000.00 were released by the Office of the Presidential Adviser on
Peace Process (OPAPP) through the Provincial Government of Leyte as
additional reintegration assistance to fourteen (14) former rebels who
surrendered to the military from years 2007 to 2010.
In his message, Gov. Carlos
Jericho Petilla who was ably represented by Hon. Carlo Loreto hoped
that the basic assistance and livelihood programs in store for the
FR’s can also be the foundation of their new lives.
With the Provincial Social
Welfare and Development Office, the Philippine Army’s Bayanihan
campaign in the province of Leyte shall intensify to convince rebels
to return to the folds of the law.

Make barangay execs
wage earners – Chiz
By Office of Senator Chiz
August 23, 2012
PASAY CITY –
Senator Chiz Escudero wants officials of the country’s 42,000
barangays to be given monthly salaries instead of just honoraria and
“Dapat naman siguro may
sweldo na sila at hindi honorarium lamang. Mas araw-araw ang trabaho
nila kaysa sa aming mga senador na four times a week lamang at may
pension pa kami pero sa mga nasa barangay ay wala at honorarium lamang,”
the senator said.
Escudero has proposed Senate
Bill 2868, which would increase the benefits of barangay officials and
provide the prevailing minimum wage in the region per month for
Sangguniang Barangay members, barangay treasurer, and barangay
The proposed bill also
provides a minimum wage rate plus 20 percent for the barangay captain.
The bill seeks to amend the
Local Government Code of 1991, which stipulates that a barangay
captain gets a minimum of a P1,000-honorarium per month while other
elected barangay officials get P600 per month.
“Our proposal is to
significantly increase the monetary compensation being received by
barangay officials. It would be the minimum wage rate in the region.
If the barangay is rich, they can give more. This is in recognition of
the fact that life is difficult nowadays. They are only receiving
allowances and honoraria. The problem with allowances and honoraria is
we can't use that as basis for pensions and retirement benefits of barangay officials,” Escudero said.
He noted that there are some
barangay officials who serve for three terms and sometimes for about
15 to 20 years.
“May tanod na 10 years, day
care worker na 15 years nang nagsisilbi. But after they serve the
barangay, they receive nothing. It’s simply because they receive
allowances and honoraria. If you convert it to salary, at least there
is a basis to compute their pension, their retirement benefits,”
While there is a proposal to
postpone the coming barangay elections next year, the senator said it
is time the government to review the use of barangay funds and come up
with a comprehensive law on the election of barangay officials and the
budget allotted to barangays.
Barangay elections are
scheduled on the first Monday of October 2013, five months after the
May mid-term elections. There is a proposal at the House of
Representatives, however, to move the barangay election on October

forces join commemoration of Aquino assassination – CPP
By CPP Information Bureau
August 21, 2012
The revolutionary forces
today join the commemoration of the 29th anniversary of the
assassination of former Sen. Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino on August 21, 1983
masterminded by the Marcos dictatorship and its fascist henchmen.
Aquino was among the several
thousand anti-Marcos political oppositionists killed, tortured,
imprisoned and abducted during the martial law years from 1972 to
assassination was among the historic watersheds leading to the fall of
the US-Marcos dictatorship," said the CPP. "The Aquino assassination
further militated the Filipino people. It highlighted the brutality of
the US-Marcos dictatorship and spurred the gigantic mass
demonstrations of workers, peasants, students, women and different
democratic sectors in 1983-1986."
"Ninoy Aquino was among the
prominent stalwarts of the anti-Marcos political opposition who
touched base with the CPP and consulted the revolutionary mass
movement in the struggle against the Marcos dictatorship," said the
CPP. "Aquino recognized the revolutionary forces as among the most
steadfast in the anti-dictatorship struggle."
"It is an outright
distortion of history for certain groups, especially those identified
with the ruling Aquino regime (by Ninoy's only son Benigno III), to
lay sole claim to the anti-Marcos movement and deny the crucial role
played by the CPP and the revolutionary forces in the struggle to end
the Marcos dictatorship," said the CPP. "The atrocious claims
repeatedly made by the military and certain reactionaries that the NPA,
and not Marcos, was behind the August 21, 1971 bombing of the Liberal
Party miting de avance in Plaza Miranda form part of such distortion."
"Despite being confronted by
Marcos' far larger AFP forces, the CPP reestablished itself in
December 1968, organized the New People's Army (NPA) in March 1969,
and persisted in underground work and revolutionary armed struggle,"
said the CPP. "Several years into Marcos' martial law, the US-Marcos
dictatorship had failed to stem the growth of the people's armed
struggle and had even become the the NPA's biggest recruiter by
negative example. The NPA would become the most formidable force
delivering the biggest blows against the Marcos dictatorship."
"Before and during martial
law, the forces of the national-democratic mass movement led numerous
demonstrations against the Marcos dictatorship, including the huge
student demonstrations of the First Quarter Storm of 1970, the
workers' strikes of 1974 which shattered the terror effect of martial
law, the nationwide student demonstrations from 1977 to the early
1980s, the workers strike movement and mass demonstrations from the
early 1980s to 1986, and the peasant marches and demonstrations of
1984, among others."
"In the mass uprising of
February 1986, national-democratic mass organizations were among the
first to march to EDSA and Mendiola and served as the core of four-day
million strong demonstrations leading to the ouster of the Marcos
dictatorship on February 25," recalled the CPP.

PO3 Erwin Navarro, in cooperation with Interpol Malaysia and the Royal
“I am happy to note that our efforts to curb human trafficking our
supported by our ASEAN neighbors. I am thankful that we were given
full cooperation by the Malaysian government,” the Vice President
He said the two victims, who were recruited by a prostitution
syndicate operating in Mindanao, are willing serve as state witnesses
against the syndicate.
Binay is the chairman emeritus of the IACAT. He is also the concurrent
Presidential Adviser on Overseas Filipino Workers’ concerns and the
chairman of the Presidential Task Force Against Illegal Recruitment (PTFAIR).
The Vice President also congratulated the Philippine Center on
Transnational Crime (PCTC) and the Zamboanga Sea-Based
Anti-Trafficking Task Force (ZSBATTF) for their continuous monitoring
of human trafficking activities in the Zamboanga City Wharf.
PCTC and ZSBATTF offloaded some 85 passengers headed for Malaysia in
three separate inspections in July.
“The offloaded passengers came from as far as Cagayan and Ilocos
Norte.” Binay said.
As of August 1, the anti-trafficking czar said there have been 11
human-trafficking related convictions with a total of 18 persons
“This brings to the total number of human trafficking related
convictions under President Aquino’s administration to 46 compared to
the 29 convictions of the previous administration over a six-year
period,” he said.
Moreover, Binay warned potential OFWs not to apply for jobs abroad
through recruitment agencies whose licenses have either been revoked
or suspended by the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (POEA) due
to numerous recruitment violations.
Government revoked the licenses of 20 recruitment agencies and
suspended 17 others due to violations, said Vice President Jejomar C.
“Since January, POEA has cancelled the licenses of 20 agencies for
premature collection of fees, overcharging, and reprocessing or
recycling of job orders. POEA also suspended 17 other agencies for
non-issuance of receipts, misrepresentation, falsifying or altering
travel documents, deploying workers to employers not accredited by
POEA, and failure to deploy workers within the prescribed period
without a valid reason.,” Binay said.

“I appeal to our kababayans to be careful in accepting job offers
abroad. Go through the proper channels and processes. This is the only
way that you could protect yourself from illegal recruiters and human
traffickers,” Binay said.
