At the hearing of the Senate Committee on Public Order and Dangerous Drugs, Sen. Lacson stressed the need for proactive measures to prevent the recruitment of students, especially minors, to the New People’s Army by its legal fronts.

Yung point ko lang, magkaroon tayo ng proactive move para matigilan ang ultimate objective ng nagre-recruit na isali sa NPA. Pag naroon at armado na, nasa point of no return kasi pwede makasagupa ng sundalo at pulis.”

“This is (an) internal security and law enforcement problem. Balik tayo sa battle for hearts and minds.”

Ping: Lahat Na Lang ng Presidente Gusto Patalsikin, NPA Dapat Nang Tawaging Terorista

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.

Lacson: CPP ‘Priority’ to Oust Sitting President in 2019 an Added Reason to Tag NPA as Terror Group

NPA

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.

“(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,” Lacson said in a post on his Twitter account.
