MANILA - The New People’s Army has released a cop it abducted in December last year, the Palace said Friday.

The NPA released the abducted deputy chief of police of President Roxas, North Cotabato, Inspector Menardo Cui Sr. in Sitio Apog Apog, Barangay Panaka in Magpet, North Cotabato.

The rebel group earlier said it “arrested” Cui for his “counterinsurgency activities and possible crimes against the masses and the revolutionary movement.”

President Rodrigo Duterte’s top aide, Bong Go, facilitated the release.
