Bayan Muna Rep. Cullamat's Daughter Dies in an Encounter with Philippine Army

One of Makabayan Bloc's congressman's daughter was involved in an encounter with the government troops in Marihatag, Surigao Del Sur. 

Bayan Muna Representative Eufemia Cullamat's youngest daugther dies in an encounter with the Philippine Army's 3rd Special Forces Batallion (3SFBn). 

Rep. Cullamat's daughter was positively identified by former rebels who personally know her as Jevilyn Campos Culla aka Reb. He was an alleged member of the SYP Platoon, Guerilla Force 19 under the leader of Ka Coby, or Marion Himo Jr. 

The encounter between government forces and the terrorist New People's Army happened at Brgy. San Isidro, Marihatag, Surigao del Sur yesterday, November 28, 2020. 

Based on initial report the encounter with the Philippine Army and the NPA rebels lasted for about 45 minutes before the 30 rebels withdrew, leaving behind one of their comrades who died in the encounter. 

Rep. Cullamat's daughter, Jevilyn, who is only 22 years old, served as a medic of the aforementioned NPA unit in Mindanao. 

The controversial partylist group, the Makabayan Bloc, in which Bayan Muna as one of its founding member now represented in the Lower House by Rep. Eufemia Cullamat, has been in the hot seat during the past few days after former NPA cadres accused them as members of the legal front of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP). 

Bayan Muna and the Makabayan Bloc made some headlines on social media but often neglected by the mainstream media because their alleged connections with the CPP-NPA. 

During the Senate hearing in line with the government's efforts to identify organizations closely linked with the CPP-NPA-NDF, the leaders of Makabayan Bloc keeps on denying their involvement with the communist movement but at the same time considered the NPA's as not "enemies" of state. 

Although not preseent in the previous Senate Hearing, Rep. Eufemia Cullamat has been receiving criticisms on her stance related to her affiliation with the terrorist organization. 

In the next few days, another Senate hearing on the topic of establishing the link between Makabayan-bloc and the other progressive groups and the CPP-NPA is set to be scheduled next week. 

Rep. Cullamat and Bayan Muna Party-list have yet to issue a statement regarding the incident involving the daughter of Cullamat allegedly fighting against government forces.
