BACOLOD City – The Negros Occidental Police Provincial Police Office (NOPPO) filed Tuesday murder and frustrated murder charges against 20 members of the New People’s Army relative to the January 27 massacre at Brgy. Puso, La Castellana.

S/Supt. Celestino Guarra, NOPPO acting chief, nine counts of murder and fourteen counts of frustrated murder were filed before the Provincial Prosecutors Office.

Named as main respondent in the cases is Magno Flores, believed to be the leader of the NPA squad operating in central Negros and alleged leader of the massacre.

Guarra said Flores hails from Brgy. Guinpanaan, Moises Padilla town.

Witnesses positively identified Flores and his group as the ones who staged the ambush which killed nine persons including a police officer and wounded 14 others.

A separate case for violation of the International Human Rights Law will also be filed against the suspects.
