Security & Defense

Compostela Valley officials declared Friday (Jan. 25, 2019) the communist terrorists as “persona non grata” in the province.

The Communist Party of the Philippines, New People’s Army, and National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF) were officially condemned and deemed unwelcome in Compostela Valley because of their atrocities, criminal acts, and violations of international humanitarian codes.

“Many lives, livelihood and businesses were sacrificed because of this conflict that has been going on for years now,” Compostela Valley Governor Jayvee Tyron Uy said in his dialect during that Friday’s meeting of the Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC), which he also chairs.


The PPOC, which consist of leaders of sectoral groups and chiefs of government agencies, declared the CPP-NPA-NDF persona non grata in a resolution adopted that Friday.

Uy stressed that his constituents want to live in a peaceful, prosperous and happy community that is insulated from the brutal war that the communist terrorists have waged for decades. Philippine Information Agency
