In Municipal Resolution No. 2019-21, the Municipal Council of Pasil condemned the barbaric acts of the Communist Party of the Philippines, New People’s Army, National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF) against government troopers and declared them “persona non grata.”
The council in condemning and unwelcoming this anti-government group cited Duterte’s pronouncement on December 5, 2017 when the President declared them (CPP-NPA) a terrorist group, a basis also provided in RA 9372 or the Human Security Act of 2007.
The resolution recalls the people of Pasil lived a peaceful and harmonious life before the municipality was infiltrated by the CPP-NPA. With the presence of this anti-government group, residents are allegedly being threatened, attacked and deceived to support their cause. It also reiterates the support and allegiance of peace-loving people of Pasil to the government. Any person or resident who accepts and help members of the CPP-NPA and their legal front organizations in the municipality will be penalized.
The council also requires legal organizations that intend to conduct activities in the municipality to pay a courtesy call with the LGU before entering the sub-tribe communities. This requirement is earlier provided under Municipal Ordinance No. 2017-01.
