NPA member found guilty of rebellion

A woman accused of being a New People’s Army (NPA) technical staff member has been convicted of rebellion by a Taguig court. Sally Ujano, who was charged in 2006, has been sentenced to 10 to 17 years in prison. Police claimed that Ujano, as a member of the NPA, was involved in the execution of NPA rebels suspected to be government spies. She had been on the Philippine National Police’s most wanted list for 15 years. Despite being found guilty of rebellion as a “mere participant” and not a leader of the NPA, Ujano’s bail was canceled and she will be taken to the Correctional Institution for Women in Mandaluyong City. Described by rights groups as a child rights advocate, Ujano plans to appeal the decision. She was arrested in November 2021 for alleged acts of rebellion committed in Lucena City in 2006.
