Army to militants: Prove AFPs link in Oton shooting, abduction

Reply to statement of Ms Hope Hervilla, Regional Coordinator of the Activist Party-List Bayan Muna blaming/accusing the military on the attempted murder and abduction of certain Maria Posa Dominado, Ely Garachico and Nilo Arado.

We in the military specifically the 3rd Infantry (Spearhead) Division, Philippine Army under the leadership of Mgen Jovenal Narcise categorically denied any involvement in the said incident. The Philippine Army here in Panay will never condone, tolerate or sanction such illegal acts.

Therefore, we are challenging the accuser to produce evidence of their wrongful accusations against the military otherwise we will be compelled to file appropriate charges against those who wish to malign the good image of military in the Visayas, because it is a direct affront to the person of the 3rd Infantry Division and the whole leadership of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

It is the mandate for the military to look and find the armed group or the New Peoples Army and other armed groups, neutralize them or arrest them and bring them to the bar of justice.
