Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas II INQUIRER FILE PHOTO

“We will come after you,” Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas on Monday warned the gunmen who killed nine people, including a policeman, and wounded 12 others, mostly civilians, in an ambush at La Castellana town in Negros Occidental province early on Sunday.

The police and the military believe the gunmen were communist New People’s Army (NPA) guerrillas.

But Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. doubted the ambushers were communist rebels because civilians were not spared in the attack.

Marañon said the gunmen could be people “high on drugs.”

Speaking at the 22nd anniversary celebration of the Philippine National Police at Camp Crame, Roxas said the victims were just coming from a village fiesta early on Sunday when they were “mercilessly, brutally, ruthlessly attacked.”

Appalled by the incident, Roxas vowed to deliver justice to the families of the victims.

“I say this to all the lawless elements out there: You hit one of us, you hit all of us. We will all come after you,” Roxas said.

The military lambasted the NPA for the attack on “noncombatants.

Lt. Col. Arnulfo Burgos Jr., spokesperson for the Armed Forces of the Philippines, issued a statement yesterday, saying the attack was “clearly another violation” of the Comprehensive Agreement on Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law, as it was directed at civilians.

Noncombatants

Burgos said eight of the nine people killed in the ambush were considered “noncombatants.”

The eight were village peacekeepers and guards who helped to keep order during the celebration of a feast in Barangay (village) Puso, La Castellana.

They were returning to La Castellana from the feast with three policemen and civilians on a truck when gunmen hiding in a sugarcane field raked the vehicle with automatic gunfire.

PO1 Richard Canja was killed. PO3 Constantino Villagas and PO2 Jeffrey Alvarez were hit but returned fire. But outnumbered and outgunned, the two policemen retreated.

The gunmen ordered the civilians off the truck and, despite their pleas, shot them.

“Despite our openness to the rebels returning to the democratic fold, the NPAs continue to wage armed violence, disrupt the peace-building initiatives of the government and even disrespect the peace process by violating past ceasefire pronouncements,” Burgos said.

“While we support the efforts of the government for peace and development, our focused combat operations will continue to target those who continue to pursue armed violence that has caused suffering to our people and loss of innocent lives,” he said.

 

Task force

Burgos said the military and the local police had created Task Force La Castellana to go after the NPA guerrillas responsible for Sunday’s killings.

“Our troops in the area will strictly follow the rules of engagement and will respect and promote human rights in all our operations,” Burgos said.

Roxas said the ambush was a grim reminder of the dangers and sacrifices that policemen face whenever they carry out their duties as law enforcers.

In recognition of their role in protecting the communities from criminals, Roxas said the Aquino administration would finance training programs and buy new equipment for policemen.

“And it is with that that I dedicate this coming year… we can gather all the resources… that you might need so that you can competently, adequately and faithfully do your duties every day,” he said.

 

Numbers

To prevent a repeat of the ambush, Chief Supt. Agrimero Cruz Jr., Western Visayas police director, ordered local police in the region never to deploy fewer than 10 officers on security assignments.

“We cannot be absent in our security functions but we must ensure that our policemen have enough numbers to repel possible attacks,” Cruz said.

Col. Francisco Patrimonio, 302nd Infantry Brigade commander, said on Sunday that about 20 communist guerrillas ambushed the truck, but the NPA has not claimed responsibility for the attack.

But Governor Marañon called on the police to investigate the attack thoroughly because it might not be the work of the NPA.

Marañon noted that some of the dead appeared to have been finished off with shots to the head.

“It looked like the work of people high on drugs,” Marañon said.

“Finishing victims off, including civilians, with shots to the head does not sound like the usual work of the NPA,” Marañon said.

The victims

Killed in the ambush, besides Canja, were civilians Virginia Ordoñez, Ricky Dingcong and Lito Lucban, village guards Mario Ricablanca and Teotimo Esplegera of Barangay Puso, and village peacekeepers Ulysses Tamayor, Jonathan Mateo and Ramir Complesa.

Wounded besides Villagas and Alvarez were Jason Oximar, Victoriano Donasco, Jamil Roma, Bonifacio Bayate, Cristituto Perolino, Jerry Lacuedo and Roger Behar, and three others not yet identified. With a report from Nestor P. Burgos Jr. and Carla Gomez, Inquirer Visayas

    Mar Rojas would like to come across as a macho. Hey Mar why don’t you stand in front of the Ampatuans who are accused of the Maguindanao massacre and tell to their faces that you will personally see to it that they will be prosecuted and punished for their crimes. Every Filipinio already knows that the Ampatuans are guilty of the crime – kayo na lang sa gobyerno ang nagbubulag-bulagan at nagbibi-ngihan!

  • http://pedestrianobserver.blogspot.com/ Political Jaywalker

    If the police can come up with Coplan Armado (approved by murder suspect Dumlao who mysteriously was assigned with PAOCC an agency directly under the office of the president) using checkpoints to massacre a fellow police officer and army men in the company of jueteng lord do we expect peace and order after that? Seriously people, when the police are seen openly committing gruesome massacres  it only indicate breakdown of law and order.

    Ala ng ginawa ang Mar Roxas kung hindi manakot. Sa Pampanga, sinabi din niya yan sa mga pulis tungkol naman sa jueteng. Sabi, ‘you have one month to get rid of jueteng or else…’  that was at least 3 moths ago. Tuloy pa rin ang ligaya. Alang dating. 

  • kontra_boohaya

    Security mission no fewer than 10 cops while checkpoints to snag one of their own high ranking cop require no fewer than 25. Yan ang mga kapulisan natin.  Tutugisin ni Mar yan pag magaling na si Marantan lalo na may kulay droga ang mga sangkot sa krimen.

  • beerhunters

    the most plausible explanation is that it was the NPA who perpetrated this ambush, not drug addicts, as evidenced by their being well organized, in large number and the powerful weapons used.( it appears that Gov. Maranon, from his statement, is trying to steer the suspicion away from the NPA. Is he scared or in cahoots with or ingratiating himself to the NPA?) This ambuscade was done to show and report some accomplishment of the CPP Regional Party Committee for the upcoming national celebration of the founding anniverssary  of the CPP/ NPA which is near at hand, that is  March 30. Sorry to say that the NPA does not make any distinction between CAFGUs and Barangay Tanods.

  • Rovingmoron

    I wonder if the NPA had a hand in that ambush! Otherwise, they could have owned up the mabush, but until now the NPA has remained silent. Was it because they made a mistake ow what? In this way, the authorities are able to zero in as to who really did it?

    • JK1000

      The reason why they don’t release press release because most of the victims were civilians, it’s not good for their propaganda. Most of the victims were “Barangay tanods” and ex-NPA combatants.

     A shot to the head of the dead or dying is called “finishing”.  In some situation it is called “cleaning”. And NPAs are also known to do them if that is the issue.

    IT IS A LAND DESPUTE  AND THE NPA WAS PAID TO DO THE JOB.  NPA’s of today are comparable to the RONINs  of Japan during the times of the Samurai.   NPA’s of today  became hitmen to those who can afford.  From an idiological group,  to a criminal  hit squad.  The technique here is nonstop hot pursuit so that they cannot rest.  It is a waste of time arresting these criminals.

  • tukmoldinako

    napaka laki ba ng lugar nayan, kung may gagawin si Mar ay dapat ngayon na habang nandoon pa ang mga Gunmen na tawag nila, or else nakasibat na yan. Yan ang meaning ng gun ban, only the lawless have guts to have them. what did the soldiers,police do, may be nothing. 

    Dapat samantalahin ng police at soldier to scour the area in the ploy of making a hot pursuit, sigurado maraming baril na illegal silang mahuhuli, patagalin payan , wala na naman, history ulit.

    Yung mga nahulihan ng baril, kasuhan at ipakulong. Kaso mo puro report lang na may nakumpiskang baril, walang nakasuhan at nakulong. Kaya ang maga tao, hindi naniniwala sa mga report ng pulis, parang palabas lang na may gun ban at may nahuhuli.

    Dapat pa nga sa mga nahuhuli, kunan ng picture  at ilathala sa kanilang munisipalidad na ang mga taong ito ay nahulihan ng mga baril para malaman ng mga tao kung sino sino ito mga ito.Kahit ganun lang, shame campaign nalang ang gawin sa mga yan. 

    • ApoLapullapu

      Papaano kung umaksiyon sila kaagad? Baka lalabas  na hindi pala NPA kundi private army ng mga Sugar Barons ang mg ambushers.  Warn them to give time  to run away.  Hindi ba ang nagwarning elitista din?

      • tukmoldinako

        Maraming situation yan at ang isa ay ang sinabi mo na maaring totoo, hindi natin alam kung sino at kung ano ang pakay. Private army at gusto lang pasikatin ang kanilang lugar dahil di man lang sila nababalita. O may gustong iparating.

        Kaya kailangang kumilos ang PNP, o sundalo at ipakita sa tao ang kanilang sinceridad na katungkulan, protektahan ang taong bayan, mag imbestiga sa lahat ng kalapit barrio, ipakita ang kanilang presencia na silay gumagawa. Sa gawaing ito man lang ay baka makatagpo sila ng matapang na magsasalita, humihingi ng tulong o bagay na magagawa nila na makatulong sa mga namatayan at maibsan ang kanilang pangungulila o kaya sama ng loob. Diba malaking bagay yan sa mga naka tira roon.  Its like a tragedy to the civilian, its like a post move by the military to alleviate the citizenry and show to the people that they are ensuring safety in their place.  Wala ba tayo nun, part ng crisis management yan ah.
        thanks

    Before Sen. Roxas makes the stupid boast that he’ll run after these killers, before he has even established who these killers are, take note of our law enforcement’s track record:
        a.  Dacer and Corbito killers have not been identified
        b.  Mastermind of Ninoy’s killing has not been identified
        c.  Identity of the killers/maulers of actor Albert Anido have not even been guessed
    Our history (starting with the complicity of Aguinaldo in the killing of Bonifacio) is replete with unresolved murders — let’s learn from our past. Rather than making these boastful statements,
    let’s have more action and resolve — and let’s do these quietly.

      You are not familiar with travel in remote Philippine places. In there, the first thing that passes that will allow you a ride is luck. As you can see in the picture, it is a cargo truck they were riding. If it is a free ride for one then it is also a free ride for all.

  • Your_King

    The government warns gunmen they will hunt you down but there should be a fine print which states that you will be hunted down until you present your Aquino KKK membership card then you will be scot-free. But for everyone else you have to follow the rule…only KKK’s are exempt.

  • wakats

    Next time around, the police must not allow civilians to ride with them and unnecessarily put them in harm’s way.  Policemen in camps or responding to a plea for assistance/investigation are favorite targets of NPA for ambush.  New PNP directives ordered that not less than 10 police officers will respond to a security assignments – too small against the usual 20-man NPA hit force who oftentimes position themselves on high grounds ideal for ambuscade.

    The ill-equipped and undermanned police personnel should be given bullet-proof and heavily armored vehicles to give them a fighting chance against ambushes.
