The CPP condemns in the strongest terms possible the AFP’s Eastmincom for the despicable killing of 15-year old boy Rondi Ondo last Saturday (April 21) in Barangay Astorga, Davao del Sur. Ondo, was with his uncle and cousin collecting coconuts when operating troops of the AFP fired upon them mistaking them for NPA fighters.
The CPP further condemns the AFP for claiming that Rondi was a “child soldier” of the NPA in a futile effort to cover-up their crime. Rondi’s mother, Marissa, vehemently denies that he was an NPA member. The AFP’s fake news mill is daily churning out increasingly incredulous lies in the mass media to fool the people.
This incident of child killing adds to the growing list of atrocities committed by the AFP against the peasant masses under Oplan Kapayapaan.
