“Ang Phil Army ay nakikiramay sa pamilya ng mga nasawing miyembro ng CPP-NPA [Communist Party of the Philippines-NPA] na nabiktima ng maling paniniwala,” it said in a statement.

(The Philippine Army sympathizes with the families of the fallen members of the CPP-NPA [Communist Party of the Philippines-NPA] who were victims of false convictions.)

“We are calling for the remaining members of the CPP-NPA to surrender and live a peaceful life with their family. The government thru the NTF-ELCAC [National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict] will ensure their transition and integration back to the communities,” the army added.
