High ranking personality of ICRC of CPP-NPA surrenders to AFP-PNP in Bontoc, Mountain Province

CAMP MELCHOR F DELA CRUZ, Gamu, Isabela – The 1st Deputy Secretary of the Ilocos-Cordillera Regional Committee (ICRC) CPP-NPA, Jacinto Faroden alias “DIGBAY” voluntarily submitted himself to the members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Philippine National Police (PNP) today, September 10, 2020 in Bontoc, Mountain Province

The surrender was made possible through series of negotiations that started as early as March of 2019 by the intensified joint efforts of AFP and PNP composed of the 54IB, 5MIB & 503IBde all of 5ID, PA and the Police Regional Office Cordillera.

Brigadier General Laurence E Mina PA, Commander of 5ID commended the involved troops for their perseverance that lead to the eventual surrender of Ka Digbay. This significant achievement will surely affect the ICRC leadership specially its members in Ilocos and Cordillera Regions. BGen Mina also expressed his gratitude to Jacinto Faroden (Ka Digbay) for his decision to surrender.


“This brave act of a top ICRC leader is a welcome development and an encouragement to the remaining NPAs to lay down their arm and live in genuine peace. If a top cadre like Ka Digbay gave up with the organization that he thought could bring social justice and equality for all then why others could not? And so, I enjoin the deceived NPAs to follow the move of Ka Digbay and choose to live in the right path."
