‘Military killed Ka Ella’

The New People’s Army – Negros Island Apolinario Gatmaitan Command (AGC-NPA) condemned the military for the murder of Kerima Lorena “Ka Ella” Tariman on August 20, 2021.

According to Ka Juanito Magbanua, AGC-NPA spokesperson, they received a picture of Tariman from a trusted source wherein she was still alive and had a gunshot wound on her arm.

“They found her alive but wounded after the encounter. The military finished her off when she could no longer fight back or they left Ka Ella to bleed to death?” said Magbanua.

This shows the barbaric character of the military and for sure they are after the reward the will receive, he added.

He further lambasted Major Pancito, 3ID spokesperson, for dishonoring Ka Ella’s legacy.

“All that comes out of his [Pancito] mouth are lies and intrigues but he cannot deny the correctness of Ka Ella’s principles and the reality of Philippine society’s conditions as reflected in her life,” he added.

Last Friday around 6:00 in the morning, an encounter ensued between Red fighters of the Roselyn Jean Pelle Command – North Negros Front and soldiers of the 79th Infantry Battalion at Hacienda Raymunda, Barangay Kapitan Ramon, Silay City, Negros Occidental.

The AGC-NPA in an earlier statement expressed its highest tribute to revolutionary martyrs Ka Ella and Ka Pabling.
