CAMP BGEN OSCAR M FLORENDO — The government’s campaign against insurgency achieved another breakthrough and further diminished the ranks of the New Peoples Army Ilocos-Cordillera Regional Committee (ICRC) after two of their ranking leaders surrendered to authorities in Ilocos Sur on July 20.

Chief Inspector Julius Suriben, chief of the PRO1 Regional Special Operations Group (RSOG), identified the NPA leaders as Samuel Compalas alias Dawing, 53, Team Leader of Party Group (PG) Polaris Team 2, Kilusang Larangang Gerilya (KLG) DE LARA of the ICRC; and Dominador Angdos, 47, Assistant Team Leader of PG Venus of the same committee.

The two voluntarily surrendered to joint elements of RSOG, Naval Intelligence and Security Group-Northern Luzon (NISG-NL), Candon City Police Station and Regional Mobile Group 1 at about 4:00 PM in Barangay San Juan, Candon City .

CSupt Ramon V. Gatan, head of the Region 1 police, said Compalas and Angdos are subjects of a standing warrant of arrest for murder issued by Honorable Judge Gabino Balbin Jr. of the Regional Trial Court Branch 23 in Candon City , Ilocos Sur (Criminal Case No. 1770).

Compalas is also wanted for another crime of murder (CC No. 1978-C), and for robbery (CC No. 2191) filed before the same court.

Before his surrender, Compalas was the target of PRO1’s COPLAN “DAWING” and has a monetary reward of P150,000.00 under Joint Order 10-2009 dated April 23, 2009.

Gatan said the series of surrender among the Communist Terrorists members and supporters shows that they are already fed up and dismayed with the false promises and horrible lifestyle of the underground movement.

The surrender of Compalas and Angdos was attributed to the massive information campaign and tactical operations conducted by anti-insurgency elements in the area with the cooperation of various sectors of the community.

Gatan encouraged other members and supporters of the New People’s Army to lay down their arms and return to mainstream society, even as he expressed gratitude to the people of Ilocos Sur for their unwavering support to the troops operating in the province.
