QUEZON—New People’s Army rebels in the province have started sending letters to local candidates to collect so-called “permit to campaign” (PTC) fees in exchange for unmolested campaign activities inside areas that the rebels consider as strongholds.

One mayor, who requested he not be identified for security reasons, said he has received a letter from the NPA inviting him to a meeting about PTC fees.

The mayor said the letter, though, did not specify how much the NPA is demanding. Col. Generoso Bolina, spokesperson of the Southern Luzon Command (Solcom), appealed to candidates not to pay the PTC fees.

The Communist Party of the Philippines, however, denied in a statement that guerrillas are collecting PTC fees. Delfin T. Mallari Jr., Inquirer Southern Luzon

    MGA MILITAR at nga mga bataan nila ANG GUMAGAWA NIYAN NAGPAPANGGAP NA npa. SILA rin yong mga napapadala ng sulat at ng nanghihingi ng revolutionary tax kuno, tapos magpepress relases sila na NPA ang gumagawa. Ginawa nila yan sa bayan namin at mga kababayan ko mismo, at natuklasan na hindi naman pala mga taga labas ang gumagawa kundi mga bugoy bugoy ng militar.
