The New People’s Army (NPA) on Tuesday, February 27 confirmed that they are responsible for the kidnapping of the six individuals in San Francisco, Quezon province on Monday night
In an exclusive interview with DZRH’s Isyu, Ka Diego Padilla of the Melito Glor Command claimed responsibility for the civilians’ sudden abduction.
According to Ka Diego, the kidnapping was a form of punishment against those who have committed wrongdoings against the country and its people.
Ka Diego further noted that the abducted citizens, two of which are members of Citizen Armed Force Geographical Unit (CAFGU), will have to undergo trial.
If proven guilty they will have to answer to necessary punishments as stated to the justice system of the NPA and the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP)
“Ang gagawin ng mga kasama magkakaroon ng kaukulang imbestigasyon; kung mapatunayan na sila ay may sala sa taong bayan, may pagkakautang ng mga dugo sa mga mamamayan sila ay mapaparusahan batay sa hustisyang ipinatutupad ng Bagong Hukbong Bayan at Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas,” said Ka Diego.
