Ka Oris, the massive surrender, and the series of arrests of their members and supporters. The defeat of the CTG will be a huge victory for the Filipino people especially for all the victims of their more than 50 years of ruthless killing, ambuscades, attacks, and other atrocities,” PBGEN CARAMAT, JR said.
