DAVAO CITY, Philippines — Naniniwala si Davao City 1st District Congressman Karlo Nograles na kinakailangan ang Charter Change upang maisulong ang Bangsamoro Basic Law.

Sinabi ni Nograles na makatutulong ang Charter Change upang malutas ang mga hindi napagkakasunduan sa pagbuo sa Bangsamoro Basic Law sa pagitan ng mga negosyador ng gobyerno at Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

Ayon sa mambabatas, maaring humantong sa tuluyang pagpapalit ng uri ng gobyerno ang Pilipinas kapag natuloy ang pagkakaroon ng Charter Change sa saligang batas.

“Puwedeng pagsabayin yan paguusapan natin ang Bangsamoro dyan sa isang kometiba, dito paguusapan natin sa plenary ang Charter Change and then pwede natin i-synchronized ang ating efforts.”

Naniniwala rin si Nograles na kung hindi papalitan at hindi gagawing federal form ang gobyerno ng Pilipinas ay hindi maisasakatuparan ang pagbuo ng Bangsamoro government dahil lalabag ito sa konstitusiyon.

“Ang set up ng Bangsamoro para parliamentary also parang parliamentary type, so kailangan para nga magkatugma ang dalai because bangsamoro is still part of the Philippines para magkatugma ang dalawa dapat sabi ko shift na lang tayo to a parliamentary federal form of government kasi otherwise makukuwestiyon at makukuwestiyon din ang Bangsamoro,” anang kongresista.

Kinumpirma din ng mambabatas na nakipagpulong sa kaniya ang ilang mga opisyal ng MILF sa pangunguna ni Vice Chairman Ghadzali Jaafar upang hingin ang kaniyang suporta para sa agarang pagpasa ng Bangsamoro Basic Law at huwag ng baguhin at repasuhin pa ang nilalaman ng panukalang batas.

Ngunit ipinaliwanag ni Nograles na hindi nito mapipigilan ang iba pang kongresista na maglahad ng saloobin at kalaunan ay humantong sa pagaalis o pagpapalit ng ilang probisyon sa Bangsamoro Basic Law. (Louell Requilman / Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

Bangsamoro execs seek more oxygen supply for COVID-19 patients

Robie de Guzman   •   June 22, 2021

Some members of the Bangsamoro Parliament are pushing for the allocation of funds for the procurement of additional oxygen tanks for COVID-19 patients in the region.

Bangsamoro Parliament deputy speakers Ziaur-Rahman Adiong and Atty. Nabil Tan, and Parliament Member Atty. Ubaida Pacasem filed a bill that seeks to appropriate P50 million for the acquisition of additional oxygen tanks to be distributed in the different provinces of the region.

“The bill is being introduced as a pre-emptive measure to guarantee the sufficient supply of oxygen in our medical facilities in the region,” they said in the bill’s explanatory note.

“If realized, the same will serve as a buffer stock to contend the possible scarcity of required oxygen so that BARMM constituents will not be deprived of oxygen tanks, should there be supply shortages in the future as the number of COVID-19 patients is rapidly increasing,” the lawmakers added.

Under the bill, the P50 million will be allocated under the Quick Response Fund (QRF) in the Bangsamoro Treasury Office not otherwise appropriated, as additional funding and budgetary requirements for fiscal year 2021.

Ministry of Finance, Budget and Management shall release the appropriated amount to the Ministry of Health, subject to existing accounting and auditing laws, rules and regulations.

Duterte asks BARMM officials to help gov’t deal with BIFF, terrorist groups

Robie de Guzman   •   May 12, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – President Rodrigo Duterte has appealed to leaders of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) to help the national government deal with the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters and other terrorist groups to prevent an “all-out offensive” against the militants.

Duterte made the appeal during his meeting with BARMM officials, police and military commanders in 6th Infantry Division (6ID) at Camp Brigadier General Gonzalo Siongco in Datu Odin, Sinsuat, Maguindanao on Tuesday.

“Nagmamakaawa ako sa inyo, tulungan ninyo ako. Because otherwise, if I give the order for an all-out offensive, it will be bloody and it will be sad,” he said.

The president also asked Bangsamoro authorities to refuse terrorist groups seeking sanctuary in their communities to stop any violence and prevent him from using force.

“This cannot go on. Kung hindi ko mapigilan and there will be an all-out offensive, yan na ang problema. If I give the order, I will no longer withdraw it,” he said.

Duterte visited Maguindanao following the clash between soldiers and some BIFF members last Saturday.

Around 20 BIFF members occupied the Datu Paglas public market but state security forces drove them away before they could attack civilian residents.

Suspected MILF lost command member nabbed in Zamboanga del Norte – PNP

MANILA, Philippines — A suspected member of the notorious lost command of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) was arrested in Zamboanga del Norte, the Philippine National Police (PNP) said Friday.

In a statement, PNP chief General Debold Sinas identified the suspect as 37-year old Kayser Martinez alias Alihamra Martinez, who was said to be a former member of the MILF lost command group operating in Siocon and Sirawai towns in the Zamboanga Peninsula.

Martinez was arrested on Wednesday during an operation jointly conducted by elements of the Regional Mobile Force Battalion 9 and Siocon Municipal Police Station by virtue of warrant of arrest under criminal case number 232 for the crime of multiple murder issued by the RTC 9, Branch 6, of Dipolog City, Zamboanga Del Norte.

Citing court records, Sinas said Martinez was involved in the massacre of four civilians last August 3, 1999, in Sitio Guisakan, Barangay D. Reconalla, Siocon, Zamboanga Del Norte with his former MILF Lost Command Leaders Hairulla Hassan alias Hayron Hassan and Eddie Namenso alias Commander Liwayway.

They were also among the perpetrators of the daring attack on Siocon municipality last May 4, 2003, that resulted in casualties and damages in the municipality.

Currently, Martinez is a member of Hassan Group criminal gang allegedly led by Anderson Hassan alias Commander Sabaya, cousin of former notorious leader Hairulla Hassan who are at the same time eminently monitored tying up with the Local Terrorist Groups (LTGs) based in Panabutan, Sirawai, Zamboanga del Norte.

“Manhunt operations against the leader and other members of the criminal gang are underway to prevent them from further victimizing innocent people,” Sinas said.

Martinez is presently detained for further interrogation.

Appropriate charges will be filed against him in court, the PNP said.
