Dapecol security was informed, but ignored threat

m10dapecol (DAVAO CITY) — The management of the Davao Prison and Penal Farm, more known by  its old name, Dapecol (Davao Penal Colony), was informed of the impending threat of a rebel attack but they did not take appropriate measures, military and police officials said.

Major General Ernesto Boac, commanding general of the army’s 10th Infantry Division said theDapecol raid was an unfortunate event but prison security was alerted of intelligence reports the NewPeoples Army is attacking DPPF.

Boac said the penal colony was considered by the NPA as a soft target, identified as an institutionthat will not “offer firefight.”
