Duterte: CPP-NPA is a terrorist group

Duterte: CPP-NPA is a terrorist group

THE Davao City Peace Committee (DC-Peace) is set to meet on Thursday, December 7, to discuss its next move after President Rodrigo Duterte signed a proclamation last Tuesday declaring the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army-National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF) as terrorists.

Under RA 10168, or the Terrorism Financing Prevention and Suppression Act, the financing of terror groups is prohibited and penalized.

"So as the President has stated before, he has finally classified the CPP-NPA as a terrorist organization within the purview of the Human Security Act", Roque said.

She said that if the President will officially release the document, she will ask the DC-Peace to convene and discuss the effects of the official document.

Citing the pertinent provisions of RA 10168, Roque said that a designated person is "any person or entity designated or identified as a terrorist, as one who finances terrorism or a terrorist organization or group under the applicable United Nations Security Council resolution or by another jurisdiction or supranational jurisdiction and pursuant to the proclamation which implements the Human Security Act".

Moreover, Polaris Greystone Financial Grp Limited Liability Company has 2.4% invested in Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW ). Chemical Bank increased Ishares Russell 1000 Growth Et (IWF) stake by 3,816 shares to 6,638 valued at $790,000 in 2017Q2.

The proclamation of the CPP and NPA as terrorist groups, which is in accordance with the Human Security Act (Republic Act No. 9372), also allowed Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea to instruct the Department of Justice to pursue charges against communist rebels, Roque said.

The announcement came a week after Duterte announced that the Palace was preparing a document formalizing the new status of the two groups.

According to Roque, there was no mention of the NDFP in the proclamation.

This after the national government gave the direction on the cancellation of the peace talks between GRP and the CPP-NPA-NDF.

Duterte, a former student of Communist Party of the Philippines founding chairman Jose Maria Sison, had sought to end the almost 50-year communist insurgency early in his term, even appointing leftists to his Cabinet as a demonstration of the two sides' warming ties.
