In a statement to the media, spokesperson Ka Samuel Guerrero said that the soldier, Corporal Zaldy Bengoa y Bermas, along with a companion had been part of the Peace and Development Team in said barangay since October 22.

Guerrero explained that the NPA members harassed the two soldiers after they received complaints about alleged abuses from the residents.

"Inirereklamo ng mga tao ang may tatlong linggo nang pag-okupa ng mga tropang militar sa barangay hall, daycare center at health center hindi lamang sa San Antonio kundi gayundin sa mga baryo ng Togawe, Benguet, Villareal at Tabi sa bayan ng Gubat, Sorsogon. Mula nang humimpil ang mga PDT sa naturang mga baryo, marami nang residente sa baryo ang tinatakot at sinasaktan ng mga sundalo at pilit na pinaaaming kasapi o tagasuporta ng NPA. Walang magawa kahit ang mga opisyal ng barangay dahil pati sila ay tinatakot ng mga tropang militar," he said.


He added that their group will continue to initiate actions to ensure that the PDT leaves their occupied barrios.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
