Hindi dapat kay Communist Party of the Philippines founding chairman Jose Ma. Sison nakatutok ang gobyerno sa pakikipagusap sa rebeldeng komunista upang makamit ng bansa ang napakatagal nang hangad na kapayapaan.
Idiniin ito ni Senador at dating Philippine National Police chief Panfilo Lacson matapos magpakita ng malinaw na indikasyon ang Malacanang ng muling pag-upo sa negotiating table sa usapang pangkapayapaan.
Kabilang sa mga positibong hakbang ng Malacanang ay ang pagbuo ng panel na makikipag-usap sa mga rebelde, partikular sa mga hindi nakikinig kay Sison.
Ayon kay Lacson, matagal na niyang isinusulong ang nabanggit na sistema kasama ang localized peace effort para direkta umanong makakakapagpalitan ng kondisyones ang magkabilang grupo.
“Such a move is long in coming. I have always believed that this is the better way to deal with the five-decade insurgency problem,” pagbubunyag ni Lacson.
It is high time the government focused its peace efforts with communist rebels on those who do not listen to Communist Party of the Philippines founding chairman Jose Ma. Sison, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said Tuesday.
Lacson said such efforts, coupled with localized peace talks, is the better way to end the five-decade-old insurgency problem as the strength of New People’s Army rebels varies in various localities.
“Such a move is long in coming. I have always believed that this is the better way to deal with the five-decade insurgency problem,” said Lacson, who has dealt with the communist New People’s Army as a member of the now-Philippine National Police which he headed from 1999 to 2001.
“I have been batting for localized peace talks and in fact strongly suggested the same to former Peace Adviser Jesus Dureza and Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III in one committee hearing of the Senate Committee on Peace and Unification chaired and presided by Sen. Gregorio Honasan II,” he added.
In an interview on DWIZ, Sen. Lacson answers questions on: – Senate-HOR meeting to end the budget impasse
– complaint filed by former Ombudsman and SFA vs Chinese leader before ICC
– measures to prevent future water crises
– localized peace talks with CPP-NPA
Kailangan nang kalampagin ng Department of Justice (DOJ) ang hudikatura upang mabatid kung ano ang kinahantungan ng asuntong tumutukoy sa New People’s Army (NPA) bilang terorista.
Ginawa ni Senador Panfilo Lacson ang panawagan sa ahensiya bunga na rin ng walang humpay na panggugulo ni Communist Party of the Philippines founding chairman Jose Maria Sison sa gobyerno, limang dekada nang nakalipas.
“(CPP founder Jose Maria Sison) has been at it for the past 50 years. So many lives lost already. DOJ should follow up with the court the proscription case vs the NPA as a terrorist group as per Section 2 of Republic Act 9372,” bahagi ng panawagan ni Lacson sa post niya sa kanyang Twitter account.
The Communist Party of the Philippines’ “priority” to oust a sitting President in 2019 should be an added reason to tag the New People’s Army as a terrorist group, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said Thursday.
Lacson said so many lives had already been lost in the 50 years that the CPP and its armed wing, the NPA, had been trying to overthrow the government.

– killing of Mayor Antonio Halili

In an interview on DZBB, Sen. Lacson answered questions on:
– dialogue between President Duterte and Catholic Church leaders
– continued support for President Duterte; adjustments his administration can make in the next 4 years
– more crime prevention, police visibility needed
– need to reassess the economy, including external factors
– consistency and having only one standard in fighting corruption
– continued jueteng operations
– localized peace talks with CPP-NPA-NDF
– fighting terrorist groups
– developments in the West Philippine Sea
To me, it makes a lot of sense. I have actually been asking myself for the longest time why we need a third country facilitator and venue to talk peace with our fellow Filipinos. For one, it entails more expenses, not to mention inconvenience.
Those who are in self-exile may only need a safe conduct passage from the government to move freely and safely during the whole duration of the peace talks. I don’t think their self-proclaimed “belligerency status” will suffer or get affected if we do not involve a third, neutral party or country.
Therefore, I fully support President Duterte in his assertion that we hold the peace talks with the Communist Party of the Philippines/New People’s Army/National Democratic Front and other rebel groups right here in our country.
