Armando Sumayang, Jr. Command - NPA-Southwest Front Negros
September 6, 2011

The following are the tactical offensives of the New People’s Army (NPA) under the Armando Sumayang , Jr. Command, Southwest Front in the month of August, 2011.

August 19- The NPA executed the order of the People’s Court (2008) for the Death penalty against Raymundo ‘Monding” Agaze of Brgy. Pinggot, Ilog, Negros Occidental on the Rape case he committed against his house helper who was a minor. The punishment against Agaze was carried on 8 AM at Sityo Makilo, Brgy Camansi, Kabankalan City.

In 2006, the victim and her parents together with the parents of the accused filed the Rape case at the People’s Court. The Court issued a subpoena and later a warrant of arrest against the suspect. The Rape case was taken up by the Court with the presence of the victim and the accused. Monding admitted that he raped the victim and promised to pay for moral damages and pledged not to commit a crime again. The initial settlement of the case resulted to the suspension of the death penalty.

However instead of paying in 2008, Monding attempted to kill his victim’s father by shooting. Because of this the local Peoples Court elevated the death sentence against Monding to the Regional People’s Court. The higher court automatically reviewed the case and upheld the decision of the lower court for the death sentence.

August 15, 2011- The NPA burned the motorcycle of a member of the 47th IB Phil Army in Sitio Cambogui-ot, Brgy Camindangan, Sipalay City.

August 12, 2011- An NPA team harassed members of the 47th IB PA, stationed at the house of a certain JR in Sitio Linumsan, Brgy Camindangan, Sipalay City. Shocked and caught by surprise the soldiers scampered in different directions leaving their firearms.

Balibagoso, spokesman of the 47th IB and Col Sumagaysay were quick to declare that the incident was a “chance encounter” to cover up their dismay.
According to the locals who witness the incident, five members of the Phil Army were killed and were brought to their detachment and another three were carried to a vacant lot in Sitio Cambinunyag near the house of the lunatic Rodolfo Alemen Jr. Later a helicopter picked up the bodies that even made an emergency landing in Valladolid for refuelling.

August 5- An NPA team initiated a partisan operation against members of the 47th IB in Sitio Bactolon who were on a drinking spree with Redhorse beer in a Videoke bar owned by Roderick Samulde. The site is just half a kilometer away from their detachment in Sitio Camansi, Brgy Camindangan.

Two members of the 47th IB PA from the detachment were wounded including Sumalde who was a civilian intelligence asset of the Army. On the part of the NPA, one sustained a minor wound but recovered fast to join the harassment operation of August 12.

Balibagoso and Sumagaysay again made fun of themselves by declaring that the NPA has many casualties as a result of an encounter. There was no chance encounter last August 16 in Sitio Balambang, Brgy Camindangan, Sipalay City. Therefor there is no truth to the claims of Balibagoso of NPA casualties that one he named as Ronald Lahaylahay Capitanea ( see a separate statement and audio-picture by Ronald). The truth is, members of the 47th IB stop a group of civilian teen agers and without any warning started shooting indiscriminately. The terrified youngsters run for their lives. The continuous firing by the soldiers despite that there was no exchange of fire lead us to believe that their intent is for misreporting spent bullets for savings in order to sell later. If you have lots of “savings” the NPA will be very glad to buy! Is the a certain “Ka Allan” the alleged informer of Sumagaysay did not send you an SMS message on the plan of attacks of the NPA? Maybe you have not given him any load or his batteries drained out.

Sumagaysay even went to the extreme of issuing a statement that a certain Ka Edna died and as buried in Dong-e and was offered a 21 gun salute by the NPA. Then later he said a certain Ka Bimboy died. These are just the series of lies and tall stories by the military to save their faces and the failures of their anti people and expensive military operations.

OPENSIBA SA AGOSTO 2011
Ang masunod amo ang mga natigayon nga taktikal nga opensiba sg New People’s Army sa idalum sg ARMANDO SUMAYANG, JR. Command Southwest Front sa bulan sg Agosto, 2011:

Agosto 19 – Ginpatuman sg NPA ang madugay na nga mando sg Korte sg Pumuluyo (2008) nga pagsilot sg kamatayon kay Raymundo “Monding” Agaze sg Brgy. Pinggot, Ilog, Negros Occidental sa kaso nga RAPE batuk sa ila timbang nga isa ka menor de edad nga babaye alas 8:00 sa aga sa Sityo Makilo, Brgy. Camansi, Kabankalan City.

2006 pa sg ginsampa sg biktima kg ginikanan sg biktima sa Korte sg Pumuluyo ini nga kaso kag sg iya mismo pamilya. Ginsubpoena kg ginpapanaugan sg Warrant of Arrest ang suspetsado. Gintalakay ang kaso upod ang biktima kag akusado. Sa dalagan sg pagtrial sg kaso, gin-ako ni Monding ang kaso kg nagpangako nga bayaran ang moral damages sa biktima kg nagpangako nga indi na magsulit pa. Bangud sini, ginsuspende ang pagpanaug sg silot nga kamatayon.

Apang imbes magbayad, sg 2008, gintinguhaan ni Monding nga patyon ang amay sg biktima paagi sa pagtiro, Bangud sini, ginmando sg Korte sg Pumuluyo sa Larangan ang pagpanaug sg silot kamatayon nga ginpasaka sa Rehiyonal nga Korte sg Pumuluyo. Automatic ginreview sg mataas nga Korte sg Pumuluyo sa Rehiyon ang amo nga kaso kg diri gintib-ong sg Rehiyonal nga Korte ang desisyon sg Korte sa Larangan.

Agosto 15, 2011 – Ginsunog sg tim sg NPA ang Motor sg isa ka katapu sg 47th IB Phil. Army sa Sityo Cambogui-ot, Brgy. Camindangan, Sipalay City.

Agosto 12, 2011 – Ginharass sg 1 ka tim sg NPA ang nagaistasyon / nagaduyan sa balay ni Jr nga mga katapu sg 47th IB PA, sa Sityo Linumsan, Brgy. Camindangan, Sipalay City. Sa kakibot sg nagaduyan nga mga Army, nagdinalagan sila nga wala sg mga pusil.

Ginapagwa ni Balibagoso nga Spokesman sg 47th IB kg ni Sumagaysay nga kuno chance encounter ini agud hinabunan ang ila kahuy-anan sa ini nga hitabo. Kag suno sa mga masa nga nakakita, 5 ka Phil Army ang patay nga gindala sa isa nila ka detachment kag may 3 nga gintuwangan pakadto sa bakante nga bahin sg Sityo Cambinunyag malapit sa anay balay sg ila ido buang nga si Rodolfo Alemen, Jr. kag didto ginkuha sg ila helicopter nga pag-abot sa Valladolid nag-emergency landing bangud nahubsan tughong.

Agosto 5 – Gintigayon man sg tim sg NPA ang partisan operation batuk sa mga katapu sg 47th IB sa So. Bactolon, halos tunga sa kilometro halin sa ila Detachment sa Sityo Camansi, Brgy Camindangan batuk sa mga nagainom Red Horse Beer nga militar sa sulod sg Videokehan sg nasamaran nga si Roderick Samulde.
2 ka katapu sg 47th IB PA nga nakadestino sa ini nga detachment ang pilason kg si Eric Samulde nga civilian intelligence asset sg Army. Sa bahin sg NPA, may isa nga nakibyasan apang karon mayo na kag nakaupod man sa harassment sadtong Agosto 12.

Kaladlawan ang ginapagwa ni Balibagoso kg Sumagaysay nga kuno mga casualties sg NPA tuga sg mga engkwentro. Wala sg natabo nga chance encounter sadtong Agosto 16 sa Sityo Balangbang, Brgy. Camindangan, Sipalay City. Gani, indi matuod nga may patay sa NPA nga amo ang ginapagwa ni Balibagoso kg isa kuno diri amo si Ronald Lahaylahay Capitanea (may separado nga pahayag kg audio-picture si Ronald). Ang matuod, mga pamatan-on nga ila ginsita amo nga nagdinalagan ang ila ginpaarakan sg lupok nga daw mga “praning” bisan wala naman sg nagabalos sa ila. Seguro nagpadamo sila lupok para may isavings naman sa ila bala. Kun may ara kamo savings, baklon namon! Wala na gid nakatext or call sa inyo si Ka Allan nga inyo inpormante nga mag-atake ang NPA? Base wala load, o low battery na.

Desperado na gid si Sumagaysay sa pagpahayag nga may Ka Edna nga napatay nga ginlubong sa Dong-e kg may 21-gun salute pa kuno. Kag sg ulihi si Ka Bimboy naman. Isa lamang ini sa mga serye sg linubid nga istoryang kabutigan agud bawion nila ang ila kapyerdehan bisan pa sg tuman ka daku nga gasto nila sa ila wala’y pulos nga operasyon militar.
