Female former rebel reunites with family during birthday in Bukidnon

IMPASUGONG, BUKIDNON – An emotional former CPP-NPA Terrorist (CNT) celebrated her birthday with her family after months of being away inside the camp of the 8th Infantry “Dependable” Battalion, Philippine Army in Impasugong, Bukidnon last October 19, 2021.

Ludy Han-ayan, alias Dian, a former medic of Regional Sentro De Grabedad, Compaq, North Central Mindanao Regional Committee, embraced her parents, Jun Han-ayan alias Lumot and Carren Han-ayan alias Kimmy, both former members of Sub-section Guerilla Unit, Headquarters Loader, Sub-regional Committee, North Central Mindanao Regional Committee, and her brother after seven (7) months of being a CNT. They happily celebrated alias Dian’s birthday while sharing a simple meal.

Alias Dian emotionally said, “Dako akong kalipay nga nakita nako akoang pamilya sa adlaw pa gyud sa akoang natawhan. Wala ako magdahom magkita pa kami sa akong pamilya tungod sa nahitabo sa akoa didto sa kabukiran. Mapasalamaton usab ako sa kasundalohan sa tabang nga gihatag nila kanako.” (I am very happy to be reunited with my family especially on my birthday. I wasn’t expecting to see them after what happened to me in the mountains. I am very thankful to the soldiers for the assistance that they have given me.)

LTC Edgardo Talaroc Jr, Commander 8IB, said “Kami nalipay nga nahimong kompleto ang pamilya ni alias Dian sa adlaw’ng natawhan niya. Kini ang usa sa among buot makab-ot nga mahimong makompleto, mabuhing malinawon ug malipayon ang pamilya nga nabungkag tungod sa pagpahimulos ug pagpangrekrut sa Communist Terrorist Group (CTG).” (We are happy that alias Dian’s family is complete during her birthday. This is one of our goals – to complete families and have them live peaceful and happy lives, which were taken away from them because of the exploitation and recruitment of the CTG.)

It can be recalled that alias Dian, surrendered to the 43rd Division Reconnaissance Company last September 23, 2021, after sustaining gunshot wounds on her left knee at Brgy. Bontongon, Impasugong, Bukidnon. She was airlifted and was brought to Camp Evangelista Station Hospital to be treated. She was discharged last October 18.
