SAN PEDRO CITY — A spokesperson of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) was arrested in Nagcarlan town in Laguna province on Sunday.

Frank Fernandez, NDFP-Negros spokesperson, was arrested at 5:16 a.m. in Barangay Calumpang, in a joint operation of the Philippine Army and Laguna police.


This was confirmed to the INQUIRER by three police officials.


One of the sources said Fernandez was arrested by virtue of an arrest warrant.

Fernandez’s arrest came days after NDFP peace consultant Renante Gamara was arrested in Imus City, Cavite last week.

President Rodrigo Duterte recently dismantled the government’s peace panel, which was headed by Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III.

Fernandez is the sixth NDF official arrested since the government terminated its peace negotiations with the Communist Party of the Philippines and the New People’s Army in 2017. /atm
