DAVAO CITY (Mindanao Examiner / 13 Jul) – Maoist rebels freed a kidnapped village leader and his son they accused as behind the murder of seven people in the southern Philippines.

Police on Thursday said some 30 heavily armed New People’s Army rebels seized the duo after they were implicated in the killings in the village of Manuel Peralta in Malita town in Davao del Sur province early this week.

The two men were put on trial by the NPA and they denied all accusations against them. Dozens of villagers also appealed to the NPA to free the father and son and said they did nothing wrong.
Police said the rebels belonged to the NPA’s Front Committee 71.

The NPA, which is fighting for a Maoist state in the Philippines, previously abducted and killed civilians suspected as military spy and abusive government officials and soldiers. (Romy Bwaga)
