Eleven months to the 2016 elections, the so-called legal fronts of the CPP (Communist Party of the Philippines-New Peopleâ€™s Army-National Democratic Front) Â allegedly already started working on establishing a personality to collect permits to campaign funds from politicians.
In fact, the legal frontsâ€”through the ground arm, Humabol, Â reportedly already sent solicitation letters to municipal officials.
Based on intelligence report, the legal front has Â been fielded to start regaining a stronghold in Bohol, to facilitate entry of the armed group.
With the armed group, the rebels could threaten and harass the target politicians so they could collect permit-to-campaign (PTC) fees in areas they would declare under their control.
On this,Â the military warns that the solicitation letters are already a prelude to the legal frontsâ€™ operations during the local elections wherein they would collect fees for PTC.
The military pointed out that at this stage that the armed rebels have not entered Bohol yet, the public should be vigilant enough to note on the preparations that the legal fronts are working on.
TheÂ legal fronts usually come in the form of NGOs and POs who are militant.
They are now trying to pave the way for the armed rebels to come back, because only the armed wing can collect money and would harass those who refuse.
In the alternative strategy, the militant NGOs and POs get foreign funding for their community projects through a grant.
The CNN leaders use the NGOs and POs to clear the money they collect and received from donor agencies and the funds they get from international organizations by posing to give help, but a study of the corruption method among legal front organizations show that they clear funds by submitting liquidation reports twice or three times to different donors, according to intelligence report.
During the recent Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) meeting, the military noted the provincewide mobilization of CNN-allied organizations during the rally in Poblacion, Trinidad stated to express strong protest against the ongoing establishment of a military detachment in Purok 7 in barangay San Vicente, Trinidad.
The military monitored more or less 100 CNN personalities and supporters converging in front of Trinidad Public Market wherein only 20 persons were members of the Trinidad-Talibon Integrated Farmers Association, an organization affiliated with Humabol.
According to intelligence report, Humabol is allied with the CNN.
BOHOL, THE FAT PURSE
An intelligence report also cropped up that aside from the PTC, the legal fronts also try to take a cut on the assistance that Bohol gets from the national government after the earthquake such as the Bohol Earthquake Assistance fund.
Even at least one percent of the P2.3 billion BEA fund is already a big amount.
If the legal fronts would succeed in bringing back the armed comrades here, they could harass the contractors who would be undertaking the projects funded by the BEA fund.
Another project that the CNN is watching is the New Bohol Airport wherein around P10 billion would be available this year.
Just the same, the CPP targets to take a cut by harassing the contractors.
As of now, another intelligence report also had it that a former officials eyeing a comeback is already negotiating with Humabol.
