NDFP consultants Luis Jalandoni and Fidel Agcaoili
QUEZON CITY, Philippines – The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) said Luis Jalandoni and Fidel Agcaoili, consultants of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP), can be arrested once they step foot on Philippine soil if a warrant of arrest is issued.
According to AFP-PIO Chief Col. Niel Detoyato, this is the mandate of the Philippine National Police (PNP) and not of the AFP.
Datoyato’s statement was in response to the PNP Chief Director General Oscar Albayalde’s recent statement that they are leaving it up to the AFP all the necessary preparations for the homecoming of the two communist leaders.
NDF’s senior adviser, Jalandoni and NDF’s chief peace negotiator, Agcaoili, are set to arrive in the Philippines next month for a meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte.
It was the President himself, in a speech in Palawan last weekend, who revealed that the two requested for his audience though they fear being arrested under the Philippine law. – Marje Pelayo (with reports from Lea Ylagan)
