Davao City – ANAD Partylist expresses willingness to help arrested NPA leader Elizalde Canete, alias Ka Jinggoy of Local Terrorist Front 3, CPP-NPA-NDF Southern Mindanao Region should he decides to return to the folds of the law.
ANAD Partylist counts among its ranks several former NPA and MILF rebels who chose to reintegrate into and work within the mainstream of the society.
According to ANAD Partylist-Mindanao Coordinator and Spokesman Arthur Tariman, ANAD could help find ways to support the rehabilitation and retraining of the young rebel leader who was wounded during the encounter with the Army’s 8th Special Forces Company, 3rd SF Battalion on Jan. 30 afternoon.
On the other hand, ANAD also supports the call of Chief Supt Pedro Tango, Police Regional Office XI director, to let the court decide on the custody issue over Ka Jinggoy.
Partisan groups and individuals such as Karapatan and some bishops of the Philippine Independent Church (PIC) should refrain from muddling the custody issue as it is the exclusive domain of the court that has jurisdiction over Ka Jinggoy.
“They don’t have personality on the criminal cases Ka Jinggoy is facing in court, lest they are his lawyers, which is not the case. Their over eagerness on the issue only exposes their true color – that they belonged to the same organization which is the CPP-NPA-NDF,” Tariman stressed.
Reports showed that the court has already designated the military as temporary custodian of Ka Jinggoy while recuperating from his wounds at the military hospital in Camp Apolinario in Panacan here.
This early, Ka Jinggoy already showed sign that he would change heart and cooperate with the government. (ANAD PARTYLIST-MINDANAO NEWS AND INFO BUREAU)
