COTABATO CITY, Maguindanao: Residents of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) will witness former enemies showing their strength and stamina no longer in the battlefield or in jungle warfare but in a sports arena as the Sports for Peace organized by ARMM Police Regional Office (PRO) unfolds on November 12 to 16 at the Camp Brigadier General Salipada Kuder Pendatun in Parang, Maguindanao.
Chief Supt. Ronald Estilles, ARMM police regional director, on Tuesday said that joining the tournament are officers and men from the five ARMM provinces namely Sulu, Basilan, Tawi-Tawi, Maguindanao, and Lanao del Sur.
Personnel from the Armed Forces of the Philippines, local government units and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front will test their skills in golf, badminton, volleyball and law tennis.
“Our aim is to help maintain peace and order in the region by playing non-contact sports with all peace stakeholders,” Estilles said.
