The New People’s Army Saturday claimed responsibility for the death John Paul Sola in Purok Sta. Isabel, Barangay Camansi, Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental, 5 p.m. on November 17.
Sola is the grandson of former Kabankalan mayor Pablo Sola who was also killed in an ambush in May 1982.
The NPA Southwest Negros Front, in a press statement, said they imposed “revolutionary justice …against despotic landlord.”
Andrea Guerrero, NPA Armando Sumayang Jr. Command (NPA-ASJC), spokesperson, said "the suffering of residents of Sitio Lumbia, Barangay Camansi and nearby sitios of Barangay Tampalon, Kabankalan City has ended”.
"The NPA-ASJC implemented the decision of the people's revolutionary court against Sola on the basis of the long standing demand of the people for justice," claimed Guerrero, who enumerated alleged grave violations.*
