The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) denounced the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) for using civilians, including a number of minors in staging a fake surrender ceremony last Saturday (29 March 2014). The public ceremony was initiated by the 4th Infantry Division in Cagayan de Oro City.
“This AFP claim of a mass surrender is a hoax,” said the CPP. “It is a desperate bid to cover up its losses in the field and the steady growth of the New People’s Army, especially in the areas covered by the 4th Infantry Division in the Caraga region.”
