DAUGHTER OF BAYAN MUNA REP. CULLAMAT KILLED IN MILITARY ENCOUNTER VS. NPA
Jevilyn Campos Cullamat, daughter of Bayan Muna Representative Eufemia Campos Cullamat, was killed in an encounter with special forces in Surigao Del Sur on Sunday.
Cullamat was killed in a 45-minute encounter in Barangay San Isidro in Marihatag, Surigao Del Sur, as identified and confirmed by nine former rebels.
She was reported to have served as a medic of the New People’s Army and supposedly belongs to the Communist NPA Terrorist’s Sandatahang Yuniy Pampropaganda Platoon of the Guerilla Front 19, Northeastern Regional Committee (NEMRC).
Five high-powered firearms were seized in the encounter including three AK-47 rifles, one M14 rifle, and one M653 5.56 caliber rifle. Five backpacks containing “war material and subversive documents” were also seized.
Sought for comment, Representative Cullamat said she was not surprised that her daughter joined the NPA, as she saw and experienced the “abuses” of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).
