• Aquino regime treasonously yielded more Philippine sovereignty to MILF

    12

    THE Office of the Presidential Assistant on the Peace Process (OPAPP) on Thursday February 5, released a statement, signed by the Chair of the Government’s Ad Hoc Joint Action Group, saying that former OPAPP secretary Jesus Dureza had made “erroneous and misleading statements that the ceasefire agreement and the implementing guidelines between the GRP and MILF “clearly never required prior coordination in operations against high value, priority targets.”

    Former secetary Dureza’s stand was our February 5 P1 banner story, written by our Columnist Manny Piñol, “SAF did not have to inform MILF.”

    Former secretary Dureza had signed with his MILF counterpart Al Haj Murad the agreement containing the provision that exempts the need to inform the rebel separatist band when a Philippine law enforcement force has to enter the so-called MILF territory to go after high-value targets.

    That exemption is again clearly stated in the implementing guidelines on the ceasefire agreement signed on February 12, 2012 between the GPH Chair Marvic Leonen and MILF Mohagher Iqbal.

    But, pursuing their treasonous design of “peace at all cost” favoring the MILF in every way, “in the operational level” the Aquino administration has dropped this exemption.

    This means that under Aquino the Philippine Republic’s sovereignty has been surrendered to the MILF totally, contrary to the terms of agreements signed by then secretary Dureza during the Macapagal-Arroyo administration and even reiterated under this administration in the February 12, 2012 document signed by then GPH Chair and now Supreme Court Justice Marvic Leonen and MILF’s Mohagher Iqbal.

    Mr. Dureza’s statement
    Below is the heartbreaking statement on the subject by former OPAPP secretary Dureza, after he received a call from GPH panel Chair Miriam Coronel-Ferrer.

    The pertinent provision of the implementing guidelines on the ceasefire agreement signed on 15 February 2012 between the GPH Chair Marvic Leonen and MILF Mohagher Iqbal clearly states:

    “6. Except for operations against high priority targets, a list of which shall be provided by the GPH Panel to the MILF Panel, the AHJAG shall inform the GPH and the MILF CCCH at least 24 hours prior to the conduct of the AFP/PNP operations in order to allow sufficient time for the evacuation of civilians and to avoid armed confrontation between the GPH and MILF forces”

    The clear language speaks for itself. It clearly exempts the GPH operating units in cases of operations against the likes of MARWAN. In fact, the SAF informed others of the top secret operations AFTER THE FACT to prevent the operations from being compromised, learning from previous failed operations in the past. Otherwise, they would have not successfully bagged HPT MARWAN.

    However, I received today a phone call today from GPH Panel Chair Miriam Coronel- Ferrer clarifying that although that provision can be interpreted as giving exemption, however, on the operational level, prior coordination is a MUST. And this has been the operating procedure downloaded to all AFP/ PNP units.

    Although I maintain the same position that prior coordination is not necessary in operations against HPT as clearly provided in the said provision, I yield to the clarification of Chair Ferrer who is now privy and authoritative on internal matters in the peace process. I am no longer there.

      An eye opener- who is the enemy of the people?
      By Shiela Pascual
      What do this people really want: when the day FILIPINO cast their vote for President, I believe we have help put this country to its last journey.
      The word BANGSAMORO first came out in the 1960s. “BANGSA” is a Malaysian word; there is no dialect in Mindanao or Philippines that uses the word BANGSA. “BANGSAMORO” is the Malaysian long-term project of adding Sabah and Mindanao to their colonies. They already succeeded in grabbing Sabah during the time of Sen Ninoy Aquino. They are using the current President NoyNoy Aquino (PNoy is son of Sen Aquino) to get “part of Mindanao” through the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL).
      The Moro islamic Liberation Front (MILF) is the informal army of Malaysia in Mindanao from 1976 up to present (it used to be us MNLF from 1969-1976). That’s why that BBL is a “Malaysia-PNoy-MILF Deal”. PNoy is a collaborator of Malaysia — too bad he became the President of the Philippines because of heavy Malaysian spending in manipulating the greed of mainstream mass media to back-up Aquinos. Malaysia’s invisible hand in national politics in Philippines is very influential and they are experts in using money to manipulate mainstream media.
      Marcos and Estrada have the same story. Marcos wanted to recover Sabah, and bombarded the MNLF, so the mainstream mass media ganged-up on him and he got ousted. Erap wanted to recover Sabah and bombarded MILF, so the mainstream mass media ganged-up on him and he got ousted. The opponent of the Malaysia-Aquino group is the MORO NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT (MNLF) led by Nur Misuari and we have been fighting the Malaysia-Aquino gang for a long time already. We, MNLFs are the true patriots of the Republic of the Philippines. MNLF wants to recover Sabah for the Republic of the Philippines. We also don’t want the BBL to succeed because we don’t want Malaysia to steal any part of Mindanao from the sovereign territory of the Republic of the Philippines

      How will one know if the operation if HPT (for it to be exempted from having to coordinate with the MILF) or NOT?

      This provision is totally flawed from the very start.

      But then again, how will the military (or police) are we going to trust the MILF when they’ve been traditionally harboring some terrorists, and any so called “coordination” would only give the terrorists enough time to pack up and go else where?

      The decision by not coordinating was bad simply because it turned out bad, but had no casualties of such magnitude occurred, it would have been a success.

      Lesson learned: trust and sincerity have their limits esp. to a group whose past speak for the future, unless of course, there’s substantial indicators that they have indeed shown the path to true trustworthiness and sincerity. Are there that indicators?

    3. Do you think this Aquino government will incorporate the 24 hour notice to every criminal gang? At least the government did not sign away the right to bear arms of our armed forces and police. Or did they also do that?

    4. Unfortunately tapos na ang peace negotiations at nagkabetahan na, este nagkapirmahan na! We are already in the implementation stage and among the first steps ay ang signing ng BBL. Dito baka may magawa pa ang mga Senators at Congressmen. and then there is the Supreme Court. Let’s hope that patriotic Filipinos will challenge the legality of the BBL as well as the one sided provisions of the framework agreement on the Bangsamoro.

      It isn’t so much about peace at all cost as it is about Nobel prize at all cost. Yes even at the cost of treason.

        Feb 1 was the last day for the nomination for the Nobel Prize.
        Atin pong isipin kailan nangyare ang massacre. Tila yata minadali para makahabol sa nomination.

    7. Mga Hudas talaga and mga Aquino, Deles, Ferrer na iyan.
      They value the goal of a Nobel Peace Prize for their Liar President than TRUE PEACE in MIndanao.

    8. Ibig sabihin,hawak sa leeg ng MILF si Chair Ferrer? At tayo pa ngayon ang lumabag sa usapan kaya nagkaroon ng misencounter?

    9. Coordinate with the MILF before arresting a criminal, whether local or international, hiding in their midst? What kind of thinking or argument is that? These MILF cum BIFF goons protect these criminals. And why not? In the first place, they know that such criminal(s) lives with them. They do not drive and disown such lowlifes.

      And now, somebody in the gang of aquino talks about coordination? Hog gising. Taga-saang planeta ka ba or kayo? Coordination para itago uli ang criminal(s) sa ibang lugar? Bitbitin ninyo lagi ang utak ninyo. STUPID FOOLS.
