NPA leader nabbed in Las Piñas

By

MANILA, Philippines—A  top-ranking communist rebel with cases of kidnapping and murder was arrested at a shopping mall in Las Piñas in a joint operation by government forces Tuesday, the military said.

Army spokesman Major Harold Cabunoc said NPA leader Reynante  Gamara alias Mike, was arrested at Star Mall at about 1p.m., on a warrant issued by Mauban, Quezon Judge Rodolfo Obnamia Jr. Police also arrested his companion, a certain Santiago Balleta.

Gamara led the group of NPA rebels who abducted Private First Class Eriberto Eclavea in a farm house in Cagsiay Tres, Mauban town in 2007. He also allegedly ordered the killing of the said soldier through the ‘Kangaroo Court’ system of the rebel group.

In 2008, a fellow NPA member of Gamara testified against him, confirming his involvement in the crime. He also said he led Eclavea to what would be his own shallow grave.

    bakit ba may NPA pa hanggang ngayon? eh 1991 pa bumagsak yung komunismo sa Russia mismo. Yung China nga capitalist market na ngayon eh. 

    sana naman magbalik-loob na tong mga to para makausad na ang bansa natin. naiiwanan na tuloy tayo ng mga kapit-bahay nating bansa dahil umaasenso sila bilang mga kapitalistang bansa.
