GRP-MILF peace talks to resume

Cotabato City (4 September) -- "But if they don't listen to our calls, more and more people could be affected by the wars," said Abubakar Uy, secretary-general of Suara Bangsamoro regarding the need for the GRP-MILF) Peace Talks to resume.

Uy has expressed concern to the possible "impact" if both parties would not pay attention to the unrelenting calls for them to go back to the tables for peace talks.

The Kawagib, a Moro Human rights group said that the postponement of the Government of the Republic of the Philippines-Moro Islamic Liberation Front (GRP-MILF) 14th exploratory talks, which was supposed to held last week in Malaysia, showed insincerity on the part of the government to address the Moro problem.

Kawagib said that civilians have been affected by indiscriminate firings and aerial bombardment, and were harassed by military by tagging them as sympathizers, if not members, of the Abu Sayyaf.

More than a thousand families from Basilan and Sulu have been displace by the fighting.

Also the group has urged the Senate to pursue its investigation on the claims of Senator Antonio Trillanes III regarding the July 10,2007 ambush in Basilan that killed 14 Marine soldiers, 10 of whom were mutilated by suspected members of the Abu Sayyaf.

The group also wants to know if indeed the Marines were "sacrificed" to justify the full military offensive in Basilan and Sulu as claimed by Trillanes. (wrb/PIA 12) [top]
