Police announce surrender of ‘Ka Jordan’

SAN ANTONIO, Zambales—A man described by police as a communist rebel surrendered to authorities in the province on Wednesday (May 12).

The man, identified only as Ka Jordan, was a member of the communist group Bagong Hukbong Bayan, according to a report of the regional police office in Central Luzon.

In a statement, Brig. Gen. Valeriano de Leon, Central Luzon PNP chief, said Ka Jordan surrendered to authorities because of hardship and poverty in the rebel movement.

“The government has prepared a program for rebel returnees such as the Comprehensive Local Initiative Program wherein our brothers and sisters who are former members of the NPA will receive cash and livelihood assistance, housing, employment assistance, among others,” De Leon said.
