TRIBAL LEADER SLAMS JOMA LIES AND DECEPTION
Not a coward like Joma
CHICAGO, Illinois – Unperturbed by whatever will come his way for exposing the truth about communist lies and deception, a tribal leader said Monday he will never abandon his fellow indigenous peoples (IPs), unlike what Jose Maria Sison did more than 30 years ago.
In an interview by Filipino reporters at the Philippine Consulate General here, Datu Ramon Bayaan, of the Obu Manuvu Tribe from Arakan, North Cotabato, said he will never leave his community just to seek refuge and safety someplace else.
Bayaan was answering queries from Chicago-based journalists who floated the idea of asylum after the former placed himself in the line of fire due to revelations that he and seven other IP leaders from Mindanao made against the Communist Party of the Philip[pines and New People’s Army (CPP-NPA).
