Sun Star Bacolod - - Top Stories -

THE Ba­colod City Po­lice Of­fice (BCPO) has asked the City Coun­cil to de­clare the Com­mu­nist Party of the Philip­pines and New Peo­ple’s Army (CPP-NPA) as per­sona non grata.

In his let­ter dated May 2 ad­dressed to Vice Mayor El Cid Fa­mil­iaran, BCPO act­ing di­rec­tor Po­lice Colonel Henry Bi­nas, said that some lo­cal govern­ment units in the ar­eas of Lu­zon, Visayas and Min­danao al­ready de­clared the CPP/ NPA as per­sona non grata.

He said the dec­la­ra­tion was made cit­ing the con­tin­ued acts of vi­o­lence, ter­ror­ism, vi­o­lent extremism and other forms of law­less­ness, op­pres­sion, and ha­rass­ment of the com­mu­nist in­sur­gents to the peo­ple.

“Said acts are man­i­fes­ta­tion that the com­mu­nist in­sur­gents only bring ex­treme poverty and mis­ery to the peo­ple,” he added.

Bi­nas has asked the City Coun­cil to pass a res­o­lu­tion on their reg­u­lar ses­sion on Wed­nes­day.

For his part, Fa­mil­iaran said the BCPO’S re­quest was al­ready re­ferred to the com­mit­tee on po­lice mat­ters.

He said it will de­pend on the de­lib­er­a­tion of the City Coun­cil next week.
