On December 14 or two days before the ceasefire between the NDFP and GRP, 10th ID spokesperson Maj. Medel Aguilar claims to have arrested an NPA leader and four others in Brgy. Upper Suyan, Malapatan, Sarangani Province. This is a patent lie and a disservice to the current ceasefire agreement. The so-called NPA leader and members named Tuning Mungkil, Joel Mungkil, Benito Balbino, Ricky Mungkil and Anthony Salway never joined any unit of the New People's Army and have never been members of the underground revolutionary movement.

However, the ABC will guard against operations of the 41st and 50th Infantry Battalions, be these under the guise of defensive patrol operations, that intrude into areas of Red political power and influence. Capt. Edward Sia-ed, 503rd Brigade Spokesperson, earlier said that they will conduct patrol operations despite President Aquino's SOMO declaration, and currently, the 41st and 50th IB are taking forward positions that are clearly not defensive actions.

In a repeat performance of a similar zarzuela earlier this year, the 5th ID last November 8 staged another signing ceremony with the Kalinga provincial government declaring the province "insurgency-free."

This latest stunt of the 5th ID, particularly the 501st Bde, intends to increase the involvement of the local police and government units in the counter-insurgency operations, camouflage the frantic tactical shifting of troops, and hide from the public the dismal failure of the extended Oplan Bantay Laya II.
