“The government will seek a special arrangement with the Dutch Government for the extradition of Joma Sison,” DILG said in a statement, quoting Interior Secretary Eduardo Año.ADVERTISEMENT“On the grounds that his ‘refugee status’ is no longer tenable because he participated in the commission of crimes and other criminal acts as determined by the Regional Trial Court, which renders him effectively ineligible,” the DILG secretary added.

Juliet is also included in the arrest warrant.

“This fact has been established when the United States, the European Union, and the Duterte administration declared the CPP/NPA as a terrorist organization,” Año said.Año also called Sison a “coward,” urging the CPP founder to give justice to the victims of the so-called 1980s massacre.

“Duwag ka, Joma [You are a coward, Joma]. Now that you are in the last few years of your life, do something right for a change, own up to your sins against the Filipino people and face the charges against you and give justice to the victims of the Inopacan massacre, among many others,” he said.
