• Binay sees resumption of talks with communists


    VICE President Jejomar Binay believes that the release of four policemen abducted by the New People’s Army (NPA) in Agusan del Norte province will lead to the resumption of stalled peace negotiations with the Communist Party of the Philippines/National Democratic Front (CPP/NDF).

    Binay said the “good gesture” of the NPA “will pave the way for the continuation of the peace talks.”

    The Vice President was in Butuan City to award land titles to residents who were able to fully pay their obligations under the Community Mortgage Program of the Socialized Housing Finance Corporation.

    Personnel of the Philippine National Police (PNP) on Saturday thanked Interior Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas 2nd for the role he played in securing the release of the four policemen who were held captive by the NPA for 19 days in Eastern Mindanao.

    “Sec. Mar Roxas has shown exemplary leadership and statesmanship in working for the freedom of PO3 Vic Calubag Concon, PO1 Rey O’Niel Morales, PO1 Joen Zabala and PO1 Edito Roquino,” said Chief. Supt. Dominador Aquino Jr., the Regional Director of PRO 13 (Caraga).

    “His efforts greatly boosted the morale of the officers and men of the PNP,” Aquino added.

    The four police officers were freed by communist guerrillas on Tuesday and eventually turned over to government officials led by Roxas and PNP chief Alan Purisima in Agusan del Norte.

    Concon also thanked Roxas, Purisima and Presidential Adviser for the Peace Process Teresita “Ging” Deles for helping them.

      Peace talks with the NPA is an oxymoron. That group is bent on toppling the government thru armed struggle. What peace talks is Binay talking about. They also will want a piece of him. The best policy is to finish off this pest that China started and funded to subvert the Philippine Government beginning in the 70’s. Clear ang design ng mga communist – to subvert, promote dissatisfaction and weaken the Philippine Government for the time that they will take over our islands, shoals and natural resources. According daw to their ancients maps, the PHILIPPINES is their possession

    2. Mar Roxas had shown his leadership in securing the release of four policemen from NPA custody. Binay is again trying to be in the picture by predicting a redundant,piton of talks with NPA. As usual Binay wants to grab a piece of any action though he was not involved or not his function to meddle or interfere on like matters. Binay wants national media mileage of which he has no business at all!
