Comment by Jose Maria Sison, NDFP Chief Political Consultant
January 31, 2019
The false claim of Chief Superintendent Mario Espino, the regional director of the Philippine National Police in Cagayan Valley, that the murder of Randy Malayao was done by the NPA is a brazen intrigue of the vilest kind.
It has two malicious and evil purposes: 1. to cover up the criminal responsibility of the murdering agents of the Duterte regime and 2. to set the stage for further murders of suspected revolutionaries, peace and human rights advocates and critics by the death squads of the Duterte regime in the PNP and AFP.
Espino is playing the role of intriguer for the benefit of Duterte and his death squads. Duterte and all his armed minions are digging their own graves because they are goading the NPA to launch more tactical offensives by way of demonstrating that they are targeting those responsible for the rising and expanding crimes of state terrorism.
In the face of the propaganda of the Duterte regime to cover up the murder of Randy Malaya and further crimes of state terrorism, there is no other effective way for the NPA to prove the falsity of intrigues and attain a measure of justice for the victims but to deliver more lethal blows on those perpetrating the crimes of state terrorism.###

Members of the New People’s Army could have been behind the assassination of National Democratic Front consultant Randy Felix Malayao, a top police official said on Wednesday.
Chief Superintendent Mario Espino, the regional director of the Philippine National Police in Cagayan Valley, said the killing could have been in connection with Malayao being a former NPA commander.
“Bilang isang mataas na CPP/NPA… dito sa region, puede rin mga kasamahan nya ang may gawa ng pamamaslang kay Malayao sa dahil sa paghina ng kanilang puwersa at demoralization sa hanay nila,” Espino said.
Authorities already have possession of CCTV footage relevant to the investigation of the fatal shooting inside a bus bound for Isabela on Wednesday early morning.
A special investigation task group led by Nueva Vizcaya chief of police Senior Superintendent Jeremiah Agligub has been formed to look into the assassination. —NB, GMA News
