Four alleged members of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army (CPP-NPA) combatants, including a student from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) were arrested in Nueva Ecija last Saturday.



The rebels were identified as Yolanda Diamsay, alias Mariz; Eulalia Pangkaliwangan Ledesma; Rachel Ann Galario, alias Rose; and Elaine Edzel Amoching, alias George; they were allegedly conducting recruitment, propaganda activities, and extortion in the areas of Nueva Ecija.

According to the information provided by the Philippine Army, the PUP Student who was arrested was identified as Elaine Edzel Amocling. PUP is considered as one of the school included in the PNP list as being targetted by the NPA to recruit its members.



First Lieutenant Catherine Hapin, chief of the Public Affairs Office of Army’s 7th Infantry Division (7ID) said the suspects were arrested at Sitio 32, Barangay Agbannawag, Rizal at 3:40pm after receiving a report from the barangay about their activities.

“The government troops found two amazonas recruiting residents. One of them was caught carrying a rifle. Two other female rebels went out of a nipa hut nearby and were caught with firearms, various (pieces of) ammunition, explosives and improvised explosive devices (IEDs),” Hapin said.

Authorities from the Armed Forces of the Philippines recovered firearms, pieces of ammunition, gadgets and voluminous subversive documents from the rebels, who are now under the custody of the PNP-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group.
