‘Only 50 of 100 RPA men
issued special gun permits’


In more than a decade of peace negotiations with the government, only 50 members of the Revolutionary Proletarian Army-Alex Boncayao Brigade have been issued special gun permits, out of 100 stipulated in the agreement, rebel spokesman, Victorino Sumulong, said.

Sumulong said the RPA-ABB members should not be arrested for carrying firearms, stressing that the disposition of their forces as contained in the peace agreement, has yet to be discussed.

The issue of the carrying of firearms by RPA-ABB members resurfaced after the arrest of two of its members in Silay City, who were charged in court for illegal possession of firearms. moremoremore
