Rebels kill another civilian

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

Another civilian was shot and killed yesterday by a group of armed men suspected to be New People’s Army rebels in Sitio Huebesan, Brgy. Marcelo, Calatrava, Negros Occidental.     

Lt. Col. Jay J Javines, 79th Infantry Battalion commander, identified the victim, based on the investigations of the Calatrava police, as Renato Estrebello, 43, of the place.

The armed men, who introduced themselves as military men, dressed in black pants and sweatshirts, reportedly brought the victim outside his house, where he was executed by the suspects.

Javines said the victim succumbed to multiple gunshot wounds and died on the spot.

The motive behind his killing by suspected NPA members has yet to established by the Calatrava police.

Javines said the rebels want to discredit the Philippine Army by claiming to be military members.

But the local communist terrorist group wants to send a message to the people, that they should not cooperate with military or else they will be killed.

On August 7, five suspected NPA members also waylaid and shot Rodel Nobleza, a livestock buyer, in Sitio Kamao, Brgy. Marcelo, Calatrava.

Nobleza, alias Peter, succumbed to multiple gunshot wounds and also died on the spot, police said.*
