3 months MILF rebels to get financial help Manilatimes
ZAMBOANGA CITY: While kin of police commandos brutally killed by the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) rebels and Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) in Mamasapano, Maguindanao continue to demand justice, the Duterte government is proposing to provide P100,000 in cash to each of the 12,000 MILF guerrillas as a gesture of goodwill and as part of the peace process. According to reports, Presidential Peace Adviser Carlito Galvez said the proposed financial aid would cover MILF fighters who surrendered their weapons as part of the decommissioning process, although there is no provision in the peace deal that the government will pay for guns collected from the rebel group.Advertisements
