Murder raps filed vs.
10 NPA rebels
BY GILBERT BAYORAN
Ten suspected New People’s Army rebels believed to be behind the ambush-slay of three civilians and the wounding of three others on July 13 in Brgy. Salamanca, Toboso, Negros Occidental, were charged for multiple murder before the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office of Negros Occidental, police said yesterday.
Police Officer 2 Lyndon Tavarez, Toboso PNP investigator, said they expect to file additional multiple frustrated murder charges this week against the rebel ambushers, whose identities were not available as of last night.
The National Democratic Front-Negros and the Roselyn “Jean Pelle” Command had earlier issued statements, asking for forgiveness from the families of the ambushed civilians, claiming that it was a case of mistaken identity.
