Government gives female ex-rebels Hongkong tour



We all know that President Duterte has an exceptional way of dealing with his enemies. You’ll never anticipate the next move. One will think that madness has taken over his overall decision-making yet soon enough we are able to see such a BIG heart behind that menacing temper.
What could be more appealing to anybody if given a chance to have an all-expense paid trip abroad for a dose of R and R (Rest and Relaxation)? No, not just ANYBODY. They were ‘former’ Enemies of the State.

An all-female former member of the New People’s Army is finally getting a unique chance to tour around Hongkong on a date yet to be determined after having to voluntarily surrender in the Eastern Mindanao Command (EastMinCom) area, sponsored by the Duterte Government. This accounts to the 683 rebels who have already surrendered to authorities in the region.




In a text message, EastMinCom Spokesman Maj. Ezra Balagtey said that “It is still being finalized. The government will definitely [provide the trip]. As to the specific office, it will be discussed soon,”.

Meanwhile, the last batch of former NPA rebels who also opted to surrender peacefully are already on their way to the AFP Headquarters.
Balagtey said about a 190 of those ex-NPA fighters have flown in by 2 separate C-130 Aircrafts from Davao City International Airport and Butuan City’s Bancasi Airport to Villamor Air Base.




“The activity is part of continuing activities of reintegrating the former rebels into the mainstream society and to give them a better perspective on life,” Balagtey added.

Part of the ex-rebel’s itinerary is a tour around Rizal Park and Intramuros for their “historical and heritage trip” to be welcomed by AFP Vice Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Salvador Melchor Mison Jr. at Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City. 

The highlight of the trip is having to dine in with the President himself on the same day they arrive. They will also get a chance to meetup with their former fellow rebels who have earlier surrendered and now work as peace advocates for the government.
