NPA punishes killer of urban poor leader in Leyte
Larab, revolutionary newspaper in Eastern Visayas (EV), reported on October 2 the punitive action mounted by the New People’s Army (NPA)-EV against Jojo “Pekulo” Lucero, the criminal who killed urban poor leader Carlito Badion. He was meted revolutionary justice in Ormoc City on June 25.
The people’s court found Lucero guilty of murdering Badion, former secretary general of the Kalipunan ng Damayang Mahihirap on May 28, 2020 in Barangay Riverside, Ormoc City. The investigation proved that Lucero was under police protection. He reportedly “surrendered” to the Philippine National Police after killing Badion, but was not slapped with any criminal charge. Instead, he was allowed to go home and was rewarded and given grocery supplies.
It can be recalled that the police accused the NPA of murdering Badion.
