Abducted school principal says captors want MNLF rebels freed Updated April 4, 2014 - 6:01pm ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines - A former captive school principal said her abductors staged her kidnapping as a reprisal to of the government's refusal to free the Basilan-based batch of Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF), who surrendered at the height of the siege in this city in September. Benita Enriquez Latonio, 60, principal of Manggal Elementary School in Sumisip town, Basilan, was freed late Thursday afternoon at sitio Mompol, Barangay Libug by her captors identified to be member of the Abu Sayyaf group led by Juhaibel Alamsirul alias Abu Kik after holding her captive for three days. Latonio was with a group of teachers on board a public utility jeepney when she was abducted Monday. Latonio said her abductors are seeking the release of the Basilan MNLF group as the latter did not directly participate in the 23-day attempt of the MNLF to take over Zamboanga City. At least 24 of the MNLF rebels, who came ...
Religion makes a suspect of a crime, ONLY in the PHILIPPINES : If any suspected civilian cannot perform the christian prayer then he/she is guilty. - What if he is also a Christian of different denominations who are not used to praying the "Ama Namin". - What if he is just a Muslim civilian. Then that means he is already a member of MNLF Rebels and already guilty without reasonable doubt. That means all Muslims in Zamboanga City are MNLF Rebels Now. -This is a clear evidence of hatred & abused to our Muslim brothers & sisters in Zamboanga City. - A clear evidence of Discrimination by AFP/Phil.Army. Allah is sufficient for us!!, and He is Al-Wakeel!! (the best .disposer of affairs) We placed our trust in Allah Video Credits : ZamboTimes.Com

In the latest development there are now hundreds of PWD’s in the city are ready to march for the City Council since they believed that the functions and authorities of Persons with Disabilities Affairs Unit (PDAU) are very limited. The difficulties of this unit are to saturate at least major barangays of the city for appropriate intervention are induced by the insufficiency of manpower, logistics and transportation support.

The National Union of People's Lawyers (NUPL) expresses its condemnation and serious concern over the killing of three  members of the legal profession in just a period of two weeks from February 19 to March 4, as it relays its heartfelt condolences to the families of Atty. Noel Archival of Cebu City, Judge Reynerio Estacio of Zamboanga City and retired prosecutor Issan Sawadjaan also of Zamboanga City.   All three brethren died violently, a raging manifestation of the impunity in the killings also of judges and lawyers and a shameless indication of the failure of the State to prevent or eradicate the continuing climate of impunity despite official disavowals to the contrary.   Atty. Noel Archival together with his staff were killed reportedly in an ambush on February 19, 2014 while returning to Cebu City from a robbery case hearing he attended in Dumaguete City. They suffered multiple gunshot wounds and the car carrying them had 31 bullet holes. Atty. Archival's family and colleagues believe that the ...

02/26/2014.THE VIEW FROM ZAMBOANGA CITY by ZCin2020 member Juanito Delgado: WILL THE REAL BENG SALAZAR PLEASE STAND UP? "Although legally married to a Salazar, Beng continues to ride on the Climaco family name. Reporters say that they are advised to use the Climaco surname instead of Salazar. Poor husband, who cannot even convince his wife to use his surname. This Climaco surname policy is official because press releases from City Hall always carry the name BENG CLIMACO… notwithstanding the rule that names of officials should be properly spelled and nicknames are taboo. The use of her Nickname in official press releases from City Hall indicate an attempt of perpetuating a lie because the mayor, officially ... is not Beng Climaco.. but according to official records and the NSO.. Maria Isabelle Salazar...Officially that should read.. MARIA ISABELLE SALAZAR nee CLIMACO." =

02/26/2014.[ZAMBOANGA CITY PROGRESS WATCH].EVEN THE OFFICIAL THINKING OF THE CITY GOVERNMENT IS LAGGING BEHIND SMALLER NEIGHBORING CITIES IN ALL OF MINDANAO. In the 1960s, Zamboanga City was considered to be the THIRD LARGEST CITY in the Philippines---after Manila and Cebu. Today, 50 years later, Zamboanga City is 20 years behind Mindanao cities like Davao and Cagayan de Oro. Even Dumalinao in Zamboanga del Sur is now using solar technology to power their street lights [see photo]...while Zamboanga City is nowhere near to even just think of using solar power for the city's street lights. - Caption by John Shinn III/ZCin2020 Photo courtesy of ZCin2020 member Chito Elago =

ZAMBOANGA CITY: A senior leader of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) was arrested by the police in the southern city of Cotabato over the weekend.
The Zamboanga City government strongly supports the move of the lower house not to grant fugitive Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) founder and chairman Nur Misuari a safe conduct pass for his reported involvement in the bloody siege last September.
Special thoughts and heartfelt prayers are with you and your family during this time of sorrow. No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye, you were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why but Even on your darkest days there is an angel by his side to guide him along the way.

Trivia: Juan Alano is the Assemblyman responsible for the charter of Zamboanga City. ^^
Zamboanga was declared a city on February 26, 1937
This is a vision which may well be our dream in our advocacy for a clean air and healthy environment in Zamboanga City powered by ordinary citizens like you and me. It is a struggle. Struggle takes a long time. Starting something is of course one big step for such a struggle. To do is much better than to stand and stare. So let's continue with this struggle.

And, there were more than 100 decisions for Jesus Christ. Glory to God! We have planted several churches and house churches in this city of around 1 million people, majority of which are Muslim. Our indigenous pastors and missionaries will follow up. This city was also the site of a six-week war with a militant Islamic group. We ministered just outside of a refugee camp. The Philippine Army and Marines are still looking for rebels in the area. We are just getting back to our hotel after a long drive. It's after 1 a.m. I will post more photos and info tomorrow. Thanks for continued prayers.
SAF men guarding Napoles recalled to secure MNLF rebs: The Philippine National Police (PNP) has deployed a number of its elite forces in Taguig City to augment the security of more than 250 Moro rebels who were arrested during the failed Zamboanga City siege last year.
MNLF RIGHT OF REPLY The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has established a behavioral "pattern" of producing Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) uniforms, and then having these worn by their puppet actors who does different kinds of crimes, and then sustain a propaganda in the media to destroy the image of MNLF. For example, the Zamboanga Squatter Demolition of September 2013 -- si AFP nagpatahi ng mga MNLF uniform and they issued to their actors who pretended to be MNLFs. The MNLF is not a participant in that chaos of Sept 2013 in Zamboanga CIty -- it was just a Squatter Demolition Operation by the government. The implementors of the squatter demolition merely used MNLF actors (counterfeit MNLFs) to act as running rabbits and chaos igniters to lead the demolishers to the designated demolition zone. The demolition was long planned by the LGU of Zamboanga City under the leadership of Mayor Climaco, in line with real estate development in Zamboanga. Even on this date of commenting, the uprooted peopl ...

ZAMBOANGA CITY - Local and international bird watchers will soon arrive in the city in droves for the upcoming 9th Philippine Bird Festival to be held from February 28 - March 01.   During the press conference yesterday morning in City Hall, Department of Tourism Regional Director Mary June Bugante proudly shared how Zamboanga City can be marketed as a prime destination for birdwatchers both from in and out of the country.   The press conference was preceded by a courtesy call of Dir. Bugante and the Officers of the Wild Bird Club of the Philippines on Mayor Beng Climaco, who thanked the DOT for organizing the activity as she cited its impact on the city’s tourism industry.   According to the DOT’s project brief, Zamboanga is a prime destination for birding enthusiasts. Among the city’s identified birding sites are the Pasonanca Natural Park, the Zamboanga State College of Marine Sciences and Technology (ZSCMST) Fish Pond and the Bog Lake in Barangay Calarian, all of which are hosts to a variety ...
The wit of Ralph Recto by Efren L. Danao INSIDE CONGRESS President Pro Tem Ralph Recto is a serious lawmaker more concerned with committee and floor deliberations than televised coverage of Senate inquiries of sensational issues. I know for a fact, however, that he’s one of the wittiest members of the chamber and could even give Sen. Tito Sotto a run for his money. Of the recent calamities (two powerful typhoons, a temblor and the failed takeover of Zamboanga City by the Moro National Liberation Front, Senator Ralph moaned: “The damage from the quadruple hits is so great that it is as if disasters had chosen the Philippines as their convention site this year.” His wit isn’t as acerbic as that of Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago but it could sting. Consider his retort at the political opponent of his wife, Gov. Vilma Santos, who whacked at her for allegedly putting on too much make-up to look beautiful: “Vilma is naturally beautiful. She can be without make-up and still look beautiful. He (Vilma’s ...
Local police to handle Napoles security as SAF recalls troopers February 8, 2014 6:54pm Local police will take charge of securing detained businesswoman Janet Lim-Napoles as Special Action Force troopers guarding her will be deployed to guard almost 300 Moro National Liberation Front members arrested over the Zamboanga City siege in 2013. "Because of the additional task of augmenting the BJMP (Bureau of Jail Management and Penology) to secure the MAMIs, the inner security of Napoles will be transferred to the local police force," Philippine National Police spokesman Chief Supt. Reuben Theodore Sindac said. The MAMIs, or Male Adult MNLF Inmates, were transferred to a maximum detention facility in Bicutan from Zamboanga. With close to 300 MNLF members to guard, Sindac said the BJMP will need more police at the site to assist them. Napoles, detained on a charge of serious illegal detention, is guarded by around 100 members of the SAF at a police camp in Sta. Rosa City in Laguna. The National Bureau of Invest ...

The Aquino government has proven to have no long-term or even a six-year program of governance. Its own twin platforms of anti-corruption and anti-poverty are increasingly seen as going nowhere. In a situation where the quality of governance is measured by the cabinet performance, there is a great reluctance to let go of non-performing or under-performing senior officials. At the end of January 2014, the Aquino administration already has several crises or major problems on its hands. Let us count them: 1. The ongoing Supreme Court case on the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP); 2. The opposition to the peace agreement between the Government of the Philippines (GPH) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the stalemated talks with the communist Party of the Philippines; 3. The continuing natural disasters that are Typhoons Agaton and Basyang as well as the problems of relief and rehabilitation of areas affected by typhoon Pablo, the Zamboanga City crisis, Bohol earthquake, and super-typhoon Y ...
Misuari warns of bigger violence Posted by Onlineon Jan 30th, 2014 By EDD K. USMAN Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) founding Chairman Nur P. Misuari, still hiding from the law, warned yesterday of a much bigger violence in Mindanao if Congress ignores an MNLF plea. The MNLF plea is for both chambers of Congress to ferret out the truth behind the Zamboanga City siege that started on Sept. 9, 2013, and two other events. Documents obtained by the Manila Bulletin showed Misuari had sent a request to the chairman of the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee (Sen. Teofisto Guingona), seeking the joint hearing. Though it was not signed, Misuari has his name on the request to the Senate as the one requesting. It was signed by Rev. Atty. Elly Velez Lao Pamatong, Esq., PhD., the MNLF’s international legal counsel and spokesman. In seeking the bicameral investigation, Misuari asks Congress to determine the causes of the Zamboanga siege, “events that transpired before, during, and after” it. “In the light of the ...

“When we accept the journey to dialogue, it is not the material things that count, but it is a token of trust, of communion, of reaching out, and of friendship from one spirit to another, from one human being to another, and from one individual to another.”   Thus, how Mayor Beng Climaco inspired the teachers attending the workshop on teaching and facilitating a dialogue yesterday morning at the Ateneo de Zamboanga University (ADZU) High School in Tumaga.   Climaco said in her seven months in office as mayor of Zamboanga City she had gone through series of human and natural disasters, foremost of which were the flashfloods, the September siege and lately the kidnapping of a teacher.   “It might be unique to other cities, but we have to face the challenge,” Mayor Beng said as she narrated a story of Clarissa, a Sama Dilaut girl, who years ago gifted her with a miniature vinta sail as a symbol of friendship.   In 2013 election period, Climaco said she gave Clarissa’s vinta sail to then senator ...

7 years after oil spill, affected Guimarasnons still not compensated By Montesa Griño Caoyonan (The Philippine Star) | Updated August 15, 2013 - 12:00am ILOILO CITY, Philippines — Seven years after the country's worst oil spill disaster in the island of Guimaras and over a thousand of affected Guimarasnons, mostly fishermen, were not given compensation yet by Petron Corp. On August 11, 2006, Petron chartered the ill-fated MT Solar 1, owned by Sunshine Maritime and Development Corp.

More than 280 suspected members of the Moro National Liberation Front who allegedly took part in last September’s three-week battle with government security forces in Zamboanga City are now en route to Manila aboard a Philippine Navy ship, officials said Friday.
Financial aid attracts IDP’s in Zamboanga   Hundreds of Internal Displaced Persons (IDP’s) (war refugees last September 9 - 28) stays outside the office of the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) on Friday, December 27, 2013 hoping to get financial aid. IDSP’s hoping to get financial aid from the government or the CHR, but we have been waiting for hours and there is no sign that we are getting some kind of aid.   The CHR said it would give out P3,000 for each family, whose houses were burned during the three-week st reet battle between security forces and Moro National Liberation Front rebels in September. About 400 rebels attacked villages in Zamboanga City in a failed rebellion that displaced more than 120,000 people and killed and wounded about 400 people.   CHR representative said that they are overwhelmed by the number of fire victims that showed up and we can only accommodate and document about 500 people as of this time, with the processing of the financial aid could take up several months co ...

Statement: The Presidential Spokesperson on the 4th Quarter SWS Survey The results of the Fourth Quarter 2013 Social Weather Survey conducted by the Social Weather Stations (SWS) make it evident: The Filipino people continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Aquino administration. The December 11-16 survey tells us that 69% of Filipinos remain satisfied with the President’s performance—a one-point increase from the last survey period—with 21% dissatisfied. In lieu of the usual naysayers trying to promote the impression that there is a general dissatisfaction among the Filipino people, the survey shows that an overwhelming majority in Balance Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, as well as a healthy majority in Metro Manila, are solidly with the President. These past few months, the President has had to make tough but necessary decisions on issues of serious national concern, such as the conflict in Zamboanga City, the earthquake in Bohol, and, most recently, the preparation and response to Typhoon Yol ...
Aquino orders swift Zambo rehab Zamboanga City – President Aquino has ordered the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and the National Housing Authority (NHA) to complete the rehabilitation and reconstruction of the five villages here that were devastated by the 23-day standoff last September – in the “soonest possible time.” The order came out after the President approved the P3.8-billion funding for the Zamboanga City Roadmap to Recovery and Reconstruction (Z3R), which aims to rebuild a better Zamboanga after the five villages were massively destructed by the standoff between government soldiers and Moro National Liberation Front rebels loyal to Nur Misuari. As this developed, President Aquino ordered DPWH Secretary Rogelio Singson and NHA Manager Chito Cruz, including the concerned government agencies, to complete the implementation of the various projects within the time frame, or if possible, ahead of the target date. Singson, who heads the Zamboanga Rehabilitation Team, comprehens ...

BI personnel ordered to arrest Misuari, 3 other MNLF leaders By Jocelyn R. Uy, Jerome Aning Philippine Daily Inquirer 1:41 am | Saturday, October 19th, 2013 The Bureau of Immigration (BI) on Friday directed all immigration personnel to arrest and detain Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) founding chair Nur Misuari and three other leaders of the rebel group who are facing charges in connection to the 21-day bloody siege in Zamboanga City last month. BI officer in charge Commissioner Siegfred Mison said Misuari, Ustadz Habier Malik, Bas Arki and Assamin Hussin should be taken into custody if any of them attempt to pass through immigration counters in any of the country’s international airports and seaports. Mison’s order was pursuant to a memorandum issued by the Justice Secretary Leila de Lima on Thursday. Immigration officers stationed in airports and seaports were also directed to immediately coordinate with other law enforcement agencies, including the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), in e ...

Army allots P1.5M for dev’t of its own drone Written by Mario J. Mallari Saturday, 21 December 2013 00:00 font size decrease font size increase font size Print Be the first to comment! The Army is presently developing its own unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or drone as part of its efforts to boost its capability. Capt. Anthony Bacus, acting chief Army Public Affairs, said the Army has allotted P1.5 million for the development of its UAV, actually the third “drone” for the command. “The Army is now developing a third drone, it’s more high end, costs P1.5 million. It will be an enhanced version of the first two drones combined,” Bacus said. The Army’s first drone was called “Raptor” which cost only P150,000 while the second was the “Knight Falcon” which cost P300,000. Bacus said normally a UAV costs P5 million. The Army cited the significance of UAVs in conducting operations against enemies of the State, particularly during the Zamboanga City siege laid by more than 300 members of th ...

Bawat isa may kwento. The daughter couldn't help but cry again. Sabi niya, wala na yung bahay niya. Wala na rin ang bahay ng mga kapatid niya. She is a widow with young children, Nakikitira sila ngayon sa butas-butas na bahay ng lola. Parang gripo sila kung mag-kwento, which made me think, mukhang kailangan pa rin nila ng stress debriefing. Mukhang hindi pa nila naiku-kwento lahat, hindi pa nila naihihinga lahat. I felt i was rude, having had to say goodbye after a while. Time was not mine alone.

Today's Missions News: They rank last in the trio of recent crises crippling the Philippines. Sidelined first by an earthquake in Bohol, and eclipsed by Super Typhoon Haiyan´s rampage of Tacloban, the plight of the people of Zamboanga City has been buried in the avalanche of disaster coverage by international media. Not that a 7.2-magnitude quake and one of the most destructive typhoons ever to make landfall aren´t hugely significant. But the misery inside Zamboanga has not magically disappeared either. Two months have passed since government forces reclaimed this city on the southern island of Mindanao from Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) rebels. The 20-day standoff left more than 100,000 people displaced and over 200 killed. The Muslim rebels also abducted about 180 civilians, including a pastor, and used them as human shields. The hostages were eventually released or escaped. The worst damage to the city took place in the barangays (districts) of Santa Catalina, Santa Barbara, Rio Hondo, Marik ...
So who's politicking ?? " Yung mga kumagat kaagad sa spliced video ni Romualdez at nagkomento na kamping kampi dito." Here's the real deal : In a 43-minute video uploaded on Tuesday night by columnist Cito Beltran, the interior secretary explained that it was not the first time that he had asked a local chief executive for a letter asking the national government to come in and take over. Roxas said Mayor Beng Climaco of Zamboanga City signed a similar letter when Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) rebels stormed five coastal villages in the city last October. ‘You have to understand we are talking very straight here. You are a Romualdez, the President is an Aquino. So we are very careful … in just taking over because we don’t (want) anything to be misconstrued.’ Xxx. ‘That’s why I don’t understand why Mayor Romualdez is making an issue of this … It’s time for you to stand up and lead the rehabilitation of your city,’ Roxas said." -Buds Convocar ( edited ) Stop the lame fucryingoutlo ...

Options Gerry Ajul Salapuddin After I made peace with the Marcos government in 1984, one day, my idol in politics the late Sen. Salipada K. Pendatun, who just returned to Manila after long years of self-imposed exile in Saudi Arabia, invited me to his residence through his son-in-law and a friend Alhamid Majini, brother of the late Albert Majini, my close friend from Sutterville Subdivision, Zamboanga City. I was not just honored but surprised for being invited by a great man like him. During our conversation, he asked me why I decided to accept the peace offer of the government? I told him why and he nodded his head in approval. Then he told me: "You know Gerry, when I was on a self-imposed exile in Saudi Arabia, Brother Nur Misuari met me and invited me to join the revolution. But I declined because I am already too old for it. Physically, I am not anymore to do what I must do.

Tomato Tomato production was placed at 68.1 thousand mt in the second quarter of 2013, 2.15 percent higherthan the 66.6 thousand mt output in 2012. The increase was accounted by the following: seeds distribution from Department of Agriculture (DA) and Local Government Units (LGU’s) in Ilocos Region, MIMAROPA and Central Visayas; increase in area harvested in Central Luzon, Western Visayas, Davao Region and Caraga; effective pest control in Central Luzon and in Zamboanga City; and, crop shifting from radish, eggplant and habichuelas in Laguna, patolain Iloilo and cabbage in Davao City. The top tomato producers were Ilocos Region, Northern Mindanao and CALABARZON with a combined share of 65 percent to the national output.

8 MNLF fighters captured; Malik still in Zamboanga. Manila Bulletin Online 25 September Ustadz Khabier Malik, the most trusted military commander of Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) founding chairman Nur Misuari, is still alive and remains trapped in Zamboanga City. This was the revelation of another MNLF-Misuari faction commander, Salip Idjal, who was captured along with his seven armed followers following a brief gun battle. Chief Inspector Ariel Huesca, spokesman of the Zamboanga Peninsula regional police, said the group of Idjal was first trapped by the government troopers conducting clearing operations. “While the government troops were maneuvering to take control of the area where they were holed up, he (Idjal) went out with his hands raised,” Huesca told the Manila Bulletin in a phone interview. But Huesca said they do not consider it as a surrender, noting that Idjal and his men were forced to do so because government troopers were about to storm their location. “Technically, we use the ...

Chiquito Malayo, comedian" by Ramon Tulfo Philippine Daily Inquirer 11:01 pm | Friday, September 20th A friend of mine in the intelligence community, who has connections in the MNLF, says the men who allegedly surrendered to Senior Supt. Chiquito Malayo, Zamboanga City police chief, were not members of the MNLF. This friend showed me the following text message supposedly from his source in Zamboanga City: "halo-halo, sir, may mga kristiano at muslim, pinik up ni col malayo tapos pinasuot ng mnlf uniform.” Translation: The surrenderees were a mixed group. There were Christians and Muslims. They were picked up by Colonel Malayo and then made to wear the uniforms of the MNLF. Chiquito Malayo lives up to the talent of his late namesake, who was a comedian.
Two more Philippine Coast Guard vessels, loaded with relief goods intended for thousands of evacuees in Zamboanga City, arrived on Saturday at the southwestern Mindanao port, the PCG spokesperson said.

AYAN SUMIPOT NA DIN SI PNOY. ANG DAMING DAHILAN NG MALACANAN. ANO KAYA ANG TOTOO SA PAGKAWALA NYA? - Noy makes presence felt after four-day absence Written by Tribune Friday, 20 September 2013 08:00 The invisible President manifested yesterday after nearly a week of being out of public view since landing in Zamboanga City last Friday saying that he would not return to Manila until the crisis in Zamboanga City is concluded. Members of media bombarded the Palace yesterday with inquiries on the whereabouts of Aquino since he has not been seen in public after visiting refugees from the conflict last Friday. Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas and Malacañang issued a standard statement that Aquino remains in Zamboanga but cannot move around since it will pose a major security problem that may divide the attention of government forces in the area. When asked when he will return to Manila, President Aquino said he will remain in -Zamboanga City until the deadly standoff is over. “I intend to stay until this is f ...

09/11/2013.THE VIEW FROM LOS ANGELES by ZCin2020 founder John Shinn III: AHA! Now I know why everyone---from President Aquino to DILG secretary Mar Roxas, DND's Voltair Gazmin and Zamboanga City mayor Beng Climaco---is trying to prolong this MNLF attack/hostage situation...Even Cebu Pacific and Philippine Air Lines seem to know something about this siege that they put out identical advisories about flight cancelations on Sept. 11 & 12. HERE MY ANALYSIS: The U.S. in its fight against global terrorism has earmarked billions of dollars in "aid" money aimed at pro-US countries at the forefront of the war against terrorism. By creating something like the crisis we have now in Zamboanga City now---on the 12th anniversary of 9/11---involving pro Al Qaeda groups like the MNLF...the Philippine government, military and even the city of Zamboanga will surely be at the receiving end of huge---I mean HUGE!---U.S. aid to combat global terrorism! NO WONDER then P-Noy, Mar Roxas, Voltair Gazmin, Mayor Beng Climaco-Salaza ...

GMA NEWS: SEPT. 18, 2013 Gov’t troops capture MNLF's Lustre Street stronghold Government troops on Tuesday captured a heavily fought over Moro National Liberation Front stronghold in Zamboanga City, from which MNLF gunmen fought off armored vehicles and exchanged hails of gunfire with soldiers. Philippine Armed Forces units took control of the KGK Building along R. Lustre Street, which was believed to be the base from which MNLF leader Ustadz Habier Malik fought government forces, Ian Cruz reported on GMA’s “24 Oras.” The shot-up building was empty, with not even bodies of slain or wounded MNLF fighters found. However, discarded MNLF uniforms were found, leading to the belief that gunmen may have blended in with freed hostages. Some 100 rebels and 40 hostages were said to have taken refuge in the KGK Building since Monday last week, when rebel forces started to attack some parts of the city. Firing continues On Tuesday afternoon, Brig. Gen. Domingo Tutaan said that some 70 percent of the rebels’ ...

The chief of police of Zamboanga City has been abducted by retreating armed followers of MNLF founder Nur Misuari. Senior Supt. Jose Chiquito Malayo and two security aides were captured in Barangay Mampang by the MNLF elements, according to Senior Supt. Edwin de Ocampo, logistics officer of the Police Regional Office 9 (PRO9). Ocampo, however, did not immediately give additional details as to how and what time Malayo was abducted. Reports said the MNLF soldiers abducted the police officer in a seaside town and dragged Malayo to a waiting pumpboat. The rebels were reported to have fled towards a small island barangay. Sources said, however, Malayo was being held in a place called Tictapul on the mainland. The kidnapping of the police chief happened amid claims by the military that they had already sealed every possible escape route available to the MNLF; and that more and more hostages were being rescued or have escaped. Hostages escape, are rescued Earlier on Tuesday, the police said 151 hostages have ei ...
A RESOLUTION CALLING FOR PEACE IN ZAMBOANGA CITY AND APPEALING TO BOTH THE GOVERNMENT AND THE ROGUE ARMED GROUP TO END HOSTILITIES AND TALK PEACEFULLY TO RESOLVE THE CRISIS. Unanimously approved on September 17, 2013. In today's regular session of the 14th Sangguniang Panlungsod, I stood up and sponsored the abovementioned resolution as my way of giving my share in efforts to restore peace in Zamboanga City. I would like to thank all the SP members for unanimously supporting my motion. Before my motion, I said the following: I firmly believe that there is NO justification to war. Nobody wins it, somebody may lose less and spin it as a victory but the truth is everybody loses in a war. Both the military and the rogue armed group have suffered casualties – but the most devastating damage and suffering are on the civilians. As I was gathering news and data about the ongoing encounters in Zamboanga City, my heart was broken upon learning that an innocent 2-year old boy was killed in the crossfire. Another 3 ...
