SAN FRANCISCO, Agusan del Sur—Communist rebels on Monday confirmed that they “arrested” a small-scale gold mining operator in this province on Saturday, saying the move was meant to punish him for the long record of abuse by his family on farmers in the province.

Ka Ariel Montero, spokesperson of Regional Operational Command of New People’s Army (NPA) Northeastern Mindanao Region, said a group of rebels took Carson Ceasar “Abud” Lademora and his aide, Leonardo Cacao, after they raided the mine site in the subvillage of Sinug-ang in Rosario town.
