Slain rebel identified

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

The cadaver of the New People’s Army combatant who was killed in the August 10 encounter with 94th Infantry Battalion soldiers in Sitio Bulasot, Brgy. Buenavista, Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental, was claimed yesterday by his family.

Brig. Gen. Inocencio Pasaporte, 303rd Infantry Brigade commander, identified the slain rebel as Anthony Ariola, alias Val, a member of the NPA guerilla Central Negros 2 unit.

The encounter on Wednesday that led to the seizure of a rebel camp, and was followed by another gunbattle in the same area, Pasaporte said.

In the two encounters, 94IB soldiers recovered two M16 assault rifles, two .45 caliber pistols with ammunition, assorted medicines and personal belongings, as well as subversive documents.

The 20 armed rebels encountered by 94IB soldiers were also tagged by authorities as behind in the ambush of policemen in February at Brgy. Biao, Binalbagan.

Pasaporte lauded the civilians for their timely information that led to the successful military operations against remnants of the NPA operating in the area, which he blamed for atrocities committed against civilians and state troopers in central Negros.*
