The peace panel of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) paid tribute to NDFP peace consultant Randy Malayao who was killed by unidentified gunmen in Aritao, Nueva Vizcaya (a province north of Manila) while he was sleeping inside bus last January 30.
In a statement released last February 6, 2019, the NDFP peace panel led by its chairperson Fidel Agcaoili stated: “When they murdered you in your sleep, it woke up even more people to the cause you fought for: a just and lasting peace, genuine freedom, democracy and prosperity to the Filipino people.” Felix Randy Malayao, they said, was a revolutionary and exemplary son of the people.
The NDFP peace panel is composed of Fidel Agcaoili, chairperson, panel members Julie de Lima, Coni Ledesma, Benito Tiamzon and Asterio Palima, senior adviser Luis Jalandoni, chief political consultant Prof. Jose Ma. Sison, and consultants and staff.
The NDFP peace panel also said that as a consultant of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) Negotiating Panel for the peace talks and its Reciprocal Working Group on Political and Constitutional Reforms (RWG-PCR), Randy showed sharpness of grasp of the condition of the people, political acumen honed by revolutionary work, and enthusiasm to the work that marked how he performed every task given to him in the revolutionary movement.
Earlier, NDFP chief political consultant Prof. Jose Ma. Sison said the NDFP is “reconsidering policy of being open to peace negotiations due to the cold-blooded murder of Malayao and other Duterte crimes”.
Malayao was buried today at the San Pablo Cemetery in San Pablo, Isabela.#
