The Bacolod City Police Office is requesting the Sangguniang Panlungsod to pass a resolution declaring the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army persona non grata.
In his letter to the SP, through Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran dated May 2, acting Bacolod Police Director Police Col. Henry Binas said their request is in line with their campaign against violence, terrorism and oppression by communist insurgents.
Binas cited the declaration of persona non grata against the CPP-NPA by some local government units in some areas in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
He said the declarations were made, citing the " continued acts of violence, terrorism, violent extremism and other forms of lawlessness, oppression, and harassment" of the communist insurgents against the people, acts that are manifestations that they only bring extreme poverty and misery to the people.
Familiaran said they referred the request of the police to the SP Committee on police matters, peace and order, and illegal drugs.
But, sad to say, all committee members were not present.
He said the chairman of the committee is Councilor Ricardo Tan, the vice chair is Councilor Dindo Ramos and Councilor Claudio Puentevella is a member.
Familiaran said the SP deferred the request of the police to the next session.*
