EMC Condemns the NPAs Arson in Bukidnon

NSFA, Panacan, Davao City - The Eastern Mindanao Command condemns the NPAs burning of the equipment of Del Monte Philippines at Purok 3 Brgy Impalutao Impasugong, Bukidnon in the late afternoon of Aug 11, 2016.

Accordingly the burning caused an estimated damage of 6M pesos and the suspension of works.

The company is a civilian entity and not partly to the conflict and should be spared from attacks as stipulated in the International Humanitarian Law.

This atrocity of the NPA is clearly designed to create a massive unemployment situation just like what they did in Dole Philippines in Barobo and Tago Surigao del Sur which forced the stoppage of company operations in said areas due to severe losses.

This NPA atrocities project a bad image before the international community which affects the investment and tourism potential of the region and the country's economy as a whole.
