Duterte says NPA a terrorist group composed of bunch of criminals
“Sawa na ako sa pininira nila ng property, pagsunog ng equipment … and their killings of innocent people … may four-month old pa…,” the president said at a press conference in Davao City.
Duterte said he will issue a proclamation declaring the NPA as a terrorist organization.
PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte said he will proclaim the New People’s Army a terrorist organization, and crack down on leftist groups such as the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan for conspiring with communist rebels.
“Beginning now, there will be no more talk about rebellion because rebellion is a [bailable] offense. We will file terrorism, murder and arson charges,” Duterte said in Filipino at a press conference in Davao City Saturday.
Calling the NPA “a bunch of criminals,” the President said he is no longer inclined to continue the peace talks with the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, the political arm of the Communist Party of the Philippines.
“I’m sick and tired of their destroying property and equipment… and their killing of innocent people, including a four-month-old girl,” Duterte said, referring to a Nov. 10 communist ambush in Talakag town in Bukidnon in which a baby was killed.

The Chinese government on Thursday turned over 3,000 units of assault rifles as part of its continuing “military assistance gratis” to the Armed Forces of the Philippines.
Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said the Chinese weapons were supposed to go to the military, but President Duterte felt the police needed them more.
“We are lucky that the Chinese government provided the firearms,” Lorenzana said at a news conference, where stacks of rifles were on display.
The M4 rifles will be turned over to the Philippine National Police for the use of its special units and not for policemen on foot patrol carrying out the government’s war against illegal drugs, according to AFP chief of staff Gen. Eduardo Año.
