Jose Maria “Joma” Sison, a writer, activist, and terrorist, founded the leftist revolutionary organization CPP. It has waged an insurgency rebellion against the Philippine government for five (5) decades, aided by its armed wing, the New People’s Army (NPA), and its political arm, the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP).

The US designated him as a “person supporting terrorism” in August 2002. In September 2009, the European Union’s second highest court ruled that he should be delisted as a “person supporting terrorism” and overturned a decision by member governments to freeze his assets. Sison has been recognized in the Netherlands as a political refugee since 1988.

Earlier, the CPP news source Ang Bayan reported that Sison passed away on Friday, December 16, at 8:40 p.m., Philippine time, in a hospital in Utrecht.

A few days after his passing, the NDFP announced on Tuesday that Sison, the founder of the Communist Party of the Philippines, passed away due to “heart failure”.

“The cause of death was heart failure, after almost three weeks of hospital treatment,” said Luis Jalandoni, a member of the NDFP national council via an online interview from Utrecht, the Netherlands.

However, Sison’s death was not further discussed by Jalandoni. To recall, among those saddened by the death of the CPP founder was Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) secretary-general Renato Reyes.
