Change of command in AFP's intelligence, peace offices

CALOOCAN CITY, July 26 (PIA) -- Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) General Felimon T. Santos Jr. on Friday presided over the joint change of chief of office and retirement ceremony via teleconferencing at the General Headquarters Building while AFP Deputy Chief of Staff, Lieutenant General Antonio Ramon A. Lim led the ceremonies at the AFP Commissioned Officers Country.

This during the retirement of Brigadier General Oliver R. Artuz, Chief of Intelligence Service, AFP (ISAFP) and Brigadier General Cesar D. De Mesa, Chief of the AFP Peace and Development Office (AFPPDO) in separate ceremonies. 

Brigadier General Jose Eriel M. Niembra took over as the new ISAFP Chief while Brigadier General Francisco Ariel A. Felicidario III assumed as the AFPPDO Chief.

“Brigadier General Artuz’ accomplishments in more than three decades of military service demonstrate his dedication and selfless service. For everything that he has done for the Service and the whole Armed Forces, it is only fitting that we give him due recognition and praise,” said Santos.

Artuz was designated as Deputy Chief of ISAFP on December 10, 2018 before being appointed as ISAFP Chief on February 12, 2020. Among his previous assignments were as Senior Military Assistant to the President and Assistant Chief of Unified Command Staff for Personnel, Eastern Mindanao Command.

Under Artuz, 697 target personalities from various threat groups were neutralized through ISAFP’s unilateral and joint operations with other AFP units and law enforcement agencies. 

The Service also conducted COVID-19 related activities such as providing a comprehensive study and recommendations on the best practices of countries in fighting COVID-19 used by the AFP in briefing the members of the Cabinet.

ISAFP has also successfully achieved the AFP Transformation Roadmap Institutionalization Pathway “Institutionalized Status” in the Performance Governance System pathway of good governance attaining the Gold Governance Trailblazer Certification with a rating of 95.15%.

The new ISAFP Chief Niembra, on the other hand, is a worthy successor at the helm of ISAFP said Santos.

“I am confident that the newly posted Chief, ISAFP, Brigadier General Niembra, would be able to inspire and lead Team ISAFP to greater milestones in the future. The AFP leadership will support you in all your endeavours,” Santos said.

Meanwhile, Lim praised the outgoing AFPPDO Chief for leading the office in overseeing the AFP’s peace initiatives in support to the government’s peace agenda.

“With different sectors supporting our peace-building efforts, Brigadier General De Mesa has contributed to the transformation of AFPPDO and the AFP as a vital ally to various stakeholders,” Lim said.

Brigadier General De Mesa was appointed as AFPPDO Chief on July 12, 2018. Prior this, he was the Deputy Brigade Commander of 601st Brigade, 6th Infantry Division Philippine Army in Mindanao. He was also deployed as Military Observer for the United Nations Transitional Administration in East Timor in December 2000 to 2001 and UN Mission in Sudan in October 2005 to 2006.

He led the AFPPDO in assuring the military’s representation to peace and development activities especially for the Bangsamoro Organic Law and Normalization Programs under the Comprehensive Agreement of the Bangsamoro. These effectively relayed the military’s staunch support to the initiatives aimed at obtaining peace in Mindanao.

It was also under his leadership that the second phase of the Decommissioning Process for MILF was held, wherein 12,000 combatants and 2,100 weapons were decommissioned and 617 ammunitions for different fire arms were turned over to the Independent Decommissioning Body.

Brigadier General Felicidario who succeeded the post previously held various assignments particularly in Mindanao as the Brigade Commander of the 102nd Brigade and 101st Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, Philippine Army and as the Assistant Division Commander of 11th Infantry Division based in Jolo, Sulu.

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.
