Former Rebels Receive Financial Aid

As part of his campaign to end local communist armed conflict, Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas provided financial assistance to three former rebels who have recently returned to the folds of the law.
This is on top of the cash aid the three will be receiving from the government under the enhanced comprehensive local integration program.

A simple turn-over of the former rebels’ firearms to the authorities was also held Wednesday at the provincial governor’s office with PROCOR Regional Director PBGEN Ronald Oliver Lee and Benguet PPO Provincial Director PCOL Reynaldo DR Pasiwen.
Gov. Diclas thanked the Philippine National Police for their continued effort for the efficient and effective implementation of the whole-of-nation approach against insurgency.
