AFP eyes Cammayo’s transfer to intel unit

FIRST lieutenant Vicente Cammayo, who was just released by New People’s Army, could be assigned to the intelligence unit of the military after his ordeal with the communist rebel group.

This was the probability floated by Eastern Mindanao Command spokesman Major Randolph Cabangbang in an interview Wednesday.

Cabangbang said with the throve of information Cammayo could have gained during his capture, he could very well be useful in the intelligence gathering of the AFP.

The EMC spokesman however said it would all depend on Cammayo after undergoing debriefing.

It was learned that Cammayo flew to Metro Manila on Tuesday evening just hours after his release in Loreto, Agusan del Sur in the morning of January 6.

Cabangbang said Cammayo will first undergo debriefing at Fort Bonifacio before he will be allowed to go home to his family in Cagayan Valley where his eight-month pregnant wife, Mariel, is waiting.

Medical examination conducted on Cammayo in Davao City showed he had a perforated eardrum as a result of the November 7 firefight with NPA rebels in Barangay Casoon, Monkayo.

Cabangbang said Cammayo also divulged his experience with the NPA. One of those that he could not forget is the incident where the rebels threw one of their seriously wounded comrades off the cliff.

Cammayo said he feared that the rebels would do the same to him if ever he would no longer have use for the rebels.

Cammayo was with the Army’s 3rd Special Forces Battalion when abducted by the NPA rebels.(With Peng Alino)
