Eight persons nabbed during the police raid on the Peña ancestral home in Pulupandan, Negros Occidental, in 2013 have filed multiple charges against 36 persons, including Cruz, and other high ranking police officers and a government prosecutor before the Office of the Deputy Ombudsman for the Military and Other Law Enforcement Offices in Quezon City on May 19.

33 ex-rebels to get help

Thirty-three former members of the rebel New People's Army will receive financial assistance of P65,000 each today, at a turnover ceremony led by Gov. Roel Degamo, at the Negros Oriental Convention Center in Dumaguete City.

The Comprehensive Local Integration Program Committee for former NPA members, chaired by Degamo, had earlier processed the documents of the 33 former rebels, who are now qualified to receive the “Immediate Assistance and Livelihood Assistance”, of P15,000 and P50,000 each.

The CLIP seeks to contribute toward achieving the goal of permanent and peaceful closure of all armed conflicts with non-state armed groups. moremoremore
