ZAMBOANGA DEL NORTE BUILDS HALFWAY HOUSE FOR FORMER NPA REBELS – UY

The Zamboanga del Norte provincial government has built a P5-million halfway house to accommodate former communist New People’s Army (NPA) rebels in the province.

Zamboanga del Norte Governor Roberto Uy said that the halfway house will serve as the temporary shelter of NPA rebels residing in Zamboanga del Norte, as they undergo transformation and livelihood skills training during the processing of their benefits under the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP).

“The halfway house will serve as the temporary shelter of NPA rebels residing in Zamboanga del Norte, as they undergo transformation and livelihood skills training.”

Uy led the inauguration of the facility in Barangay Sta. Filomena, Dipolog City, the capital of the province.

Paizal Abutazil, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) regional director, commended the governor for implementing ECLIP programs, including the construction of the halfway house.

“This will serve as an incentive and motivation to other rebels who are still in the armed struggle.”

“Zamboanga del Norte is the first province to have completed the construction of halfway house in the region. This will serve as an incentive and motivation to other rebels who are still in the armed struggle,” Abutazil said.

Meanwhile, Uy thanked the members of the Provincial Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (PTF-ELCAC) for their involvement in the campaign against the NPA in the province.

“The active efforts of our administration, together with the Philippine Army and the PNP (Philippine National Police), the DILG programs are swiftly implemented,” he said.

“Whatever you do, do your work heartily for the Lord, rather than the people of the world,” Uy added.
