Authorities have confirmed that they are verifying information that leftist groups like Bayan, Akbayan and Bayan Muna are aiding CPP-NPA.

On December 5, President Duterte signed a proclamation declaring the Communist Party of the Philippines – New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) as a terrorist group. This also marks the end of any peace negotiations or talks with the group.

Military spokesman Col. Edgard Arevalo already gave a stern warning that terrorist group sympathizers will be apprehended, including leftist groups proven to be aiding them.

He was quoted by ABS-CBN saying, “Mayroon po tayong impormasyon na natatanggap hinggil sa mga tulong na kanilang inihahatid. Kung ang sinumang grupo ay mapatutunayan na sila ay nagkakanlong o sila ay nagbibigay ng ayuda o tulong sa mga teroristang grupo then puwede na po silang makasuhan.”

[We have received information on the aid they (leftist groups) are giving. Any group found to be colluding or supporting any terrorist group may face charges.]

Arevalo even added that citizens can enforce warrants of arrest issues against communists and their sympathizers.
