Quezon Province Governor David Suarez has called on the military and the police to assist against the New People’s Army (NPA) rebels’ harassment of the provincial government’s construction contractors.
The Quezon politiko’s call for help was made during the Provincial Peace and Order Council meeting on January 22.
