4th Infantry Division Commander Maj. Gen Romeo S. Brawner Jr. debunked allegations that top NPA leader Jorge Madlos was unarmed and ambushed on a motorcycle on his way to a medical check-up as claimed by the National Demcratic Front (NDF) last Saturday, October 30. In a Press Conference held at Camp Evangelista in Patag, Cagayan de Oro City today, November 1, 2021, Brawner said the AFP respects the International Humanitarian Law and it is the NPA who resorts to such tactics citing an example the ambush of Keith Absalon.
Also present were LtGen Greg T. Almerol, Commander of the Philippine Army’s Eastern Mindanao Command (EastMinCom), Brigadier General Ferdinand Barandon, Commander of the 403rd Infantry Brigade and Police Major General Albert Ignatius Ferro, Director of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG).
