6 of Morong 43 ‘back’ with NPA, Army colonel says

Six of the so-called “Morong 43” health workers have “rejoined” the New People’s Army (NPA) upon their release from detention two years ago, the Philippine Army said Thursday. This, the Army added, bolstered the military’s contention that they were communist rebels.

The commander of the Philippine Army’s 202nd Brigade, Colonel Ivan Samarita, said the six released members had since joined up with their comrades in the Southern Tagalog region.

“They are really NPA,” he told reporters at Camp Nakar in Lucena City.

He identified the six as Janice Javier, Franco Remoroso, and Yolanda Macaraig, now allegedly operating in Batangas; and Myrna Olarte, Romeo dela Cruz and Pearl Irene Martines, now allegedly operating in Rizal.

Samarita said the six were mostly working as medics in the health bureaus of the units they were assigned to, but “they are also becoming combatants.”

Asked if the government erred in releasing most of the Morong 43, he replied: “It’s really a political decision that we in the Armed Forces will have to abide by because it was already the President who said so, that the government wants to negotiate.”

The Morong 43 were health workers arrested in a military raid on a resort in Morong, Rizal, on Feb. 6, 2010. The military said they were communist NPA cadres training to make bombs.

    Good job NoyNoy Aquino!

    Because of your vindictive character, you released these “health workers”, just to spite GMA.

    O ano na ngayon?

    Totoo talagang may mental dysfunction ka.  At ang mental breakdown mo sa Massachussetts ay hindi haka-haka lang.

    Kung hindi ka naman talaga gag0 at sira ulo no?

        NPA sympathizer ka rin gaya ng abnormal na presidente?

      • daniboy2012

        OK ka na? eto ang sagot ko….hindi ako NPA symphatizer…kundi NPA Emphatizer tulad ng pananaw ng Mahal nating Pangulo. Ikaw alam mo ba ang ugat walang katapusang rebelyon ng mga NPA/CCP?. Ricky maghunos  dili ka….ang tanong ko pag me namamatay na mga NPA nagsasaya ka ba ..ako hinde…ke sundalo ke NPA….parang namatayan ako ng isang kapatid.

        What’s the difference between empathy and sympathy… not much isn’t it?

      • http://twitter.com/ultimateprime TheSqueezePlayer

         empathy is i feel you while sympathy means i’m with you. so npa sympathizers are actually members while npa empathizers are just feeling members. he he he

    MILF a known enemy of the state… Aquino gives them  5 million pesos.

    19 soldiers massacred in Basilan by MILF… Aquino orders court martial of his own soldiers.

    Captured NPA members– another known enemy of the state… Aquino orders their release.

    It seems that his “tuwid na daan” leads towards the impunity of the enemies of the state.

      and rather focuses on the enemies of the administration.

    pnoy bilis… ikaw, si llamas at de lima na ang humuli kay palparan dahil hindi talaga huhulihin ng mga sundalo yan dahil ang commander in chief nila mismo ang gumagago sa kanila. 

  • daniboy2012

    Bakit nyo sinisise ang Presidente …sa anim …sisihin nyo yong lawyers(liars), mga leftist activies…sila ang kumimbinse sa husgado na palayain sila. Sa tingin nyo yong 6 inamin nilang NPA sila. Combatant sila gagawin at gawin nila lahat ng paraan para makatakas.

    • KonsensyaNgBayan

      I agree with you daniboy2012, at kung may alam man yu’ong ibang 37 na may kasama silang suspected NPA na anim. May maglalakas loob bang magsasalita sa kanila na kung sino-sino sila, eh di magkakaroon din ng NPA style summarily killing!!…The Government just save 37 Lives and they can still save the other 6 through peace and order. Communism doen’t have any place in our society, only their leader’s fluorish and live in palace style while the foot soldiers suffers…Common people who suffer atrocities and injustice can voice out and tell proper channels in our Government now. We are far better than the last Government administration’s…

    siguro mas madaling matanggap ng mataas na opisyal ang political na disisyon kagaya nito pero kawawa naman yong mga ultimong sundalo na nasasabak sa labanan.

    This government really knows how to boast the moral of the soldier… (of course that’s a sarcastic remark…)

        hindi masusugpo ang rebelyon sa ating bansa hangga’t hindi nila nakakamit ang kanilang gusto. kahit mag-sitdown ang gobyerno sa mga rebelde wala pa rin patutunguhan ito sapagkat hindi ito ang gusto nilang mangyari..idolohiya ang ipinaglalaban nila dito. babalik at babalik sila sa bundok pag di nila nakamit ang gusto nila. try to give them to rule the country..kung di nila kagatin ito. ito ang gusto nila, wala ng iba..:)

      40 years rebellion and counting….extermination  ..pfffttt!!! your army can never defeat the NPA..thru blazing guns….their  footsoldiers are only following orders from their hardcore communist leaders. The only solution is thru negotiation and convince the Filipino communist to take part on a  peace political platform. When trust and respect has been built by both sides…thats the only time NPA will laydown their arms and end this rebellion.
