THE Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) has filed charges
before the Department of Justice against Marklen Maojo Maga, son-in-law of National Democratic Front
of the Philippines (NDFP) consultant Rafael Baylosis.

Maga, said to be an organizer of militant group Kilusang Mayo Uno (KMU), was brought to the
DoJ for inquest proceedings in connection with the complaint for illegal possession of firearms
before Senior Assistant State Prosecutor Clarisa V. Kuong.
Assisted by public attorney, Maga opted not to answer the complaint of the CIDG for
violation of Republic Act No. 10591 (Comprehensive Law on Firearms and Ammunition).
The case is now deemed submitted for resolution.
Maga, who was nabbed at Barangay Ampid in San Mateo, Rizal last Thursday was accused of
membership in the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army’s (CPP-NPA) National
Organizing Division.
Seized from his possession were a .45-caliber pistol, a magazine containing seven rounds of
ammunition, and a wallet containing assorted IDs.
