At 4:00 this morning, the Herminio Alfonso Command-Guerilla Front 53 Operations Command (HAC-GF53OC) of the New People’s Army in Southern Mindanao has caused the release of Dennis Rodenas as he was being escorted by personnel of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP)-Ozamis City on their way to the Davao Penal Colony (DAPECOL).

Dennis Rodenas, like many Filipinos, is a victim of the unjust Philippine judicial system. He was arbitrarily convicted by a court of the Government of the Philippines based on patently false and fabricated charges which were anchored on evidence planted by the Philippine Army-Armed Forces of the Philippines. He was being transported to the DAPECOL to begin his unjust life sentence.

He was intercepted when a BJMP vehicle (plate number SKC 786), carrying him and seven (7) other inmates, and eleven (11) BJMP-Ozamis personnel, was stopped at an NPA  checkpoint in Maluos, Brgy. Sinuda, Kitaotao, Bukidnon.

Two officers of the Philippine National Police (both graduates of the Philippine National Police Academy or PNPA) and assigned at the BJMP, and two other BJMP-Ozamis City jail officers were held and taken for questioning. They are Jail Inspector Murphy B. Todyog (PNPA Class 2008), Jail Inspector Eric D. Llamasares (jail warden, PNPA Class 2007), Special Jail Officer 2 Rogelio E. Begontes and Jail Officer 1 Rolando D. Bajuyo Jr. The rest of the BJMP personnel and inmates proceeded to their direction.

Ten (10) firearms — four M-16 Armalite rifles and six pistols — were seized.
