Baguio City declares NPA persona non grata

Cordillera - The City of Baguio has joined other local government units in the Cordillera Administrative region (CAR) in rejecting the presence of the New People's Army (NPA). 

In a resolution passed by the city council on Monday, the presence of the NPA is not welcome in the city of Baguio. 

However, the resolution did not include civic groups and personalities who support the NPA. 

Vice Mayor Faustino Olowan removed the provision and said no mechanism to justify a persona non grata declaration against any person and group or organization accused of supporting the NPA. 

Baguio City is the 44th Cordillera council government that declared the New People's Army persona non-grata according to the Regional Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict. 

The NPA is listed among the terrorist organization by the United States of America, the European Union, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the Philippines.
