NPA Rebels Torched Down a Mining Firm Facility in CamNorte

CAMP ELIAS ANGELES, Pili, Camarines Sur – Suspected NPA terrorists torched down a building owned by a mining company in Camarines Norte, at around 12:30am yesterday, a military official said.

Major Harold Cabunoc, Division Spokesperson, said that more or less 5 heavily armed NPA terrorist rebels burned down a building owned by El Dore Mining Corporation in Dumagmang village in Labo town.

Cabunoc said that no one was injured in the burning incident and that there was no estimated cost of damage reported.

“This could be another attack against business firms that refuse to give extortion money to the terrorist rebels. The 902nd Brigade is conducting a thorough investigation regarding this matter,” said Cabunoc.

Barely a month ago, motor graders owned by a construction firm were also burned down by NPA rebels in Camarines Sur followed by a bombing attempt against a Globe cellsite in Masbate Province.

Major General Ruperto Pabustan has direct all line units to remain vigilant and implement countermeasures to preempt the attacks against ‘soft targets’ such as government facilities, civilian-owned business establishments and unarmed soldiers.
