Help IDPs resettle in their homes, MGen Pajarito airs appeal

ICC Iligan City (17 November) -- Maj. Gen. Nehemias Pajarito, Commander of the First Infantry Division (IID), Philippine Army, has ordered his field commanders to help the internally displaced persons (IDP) within their areas of responsibility (AOR) to resettle in their respective residences.

Pajarito's order which was particularly directed to Col. Benito de Leon, Commander of the 4th Infantry Brigade, IID (104 Bde), PA, in charge of Lanao del Norte (LDN) and the Battalion Commander under him, also included the provision of the necessary security arrangements for the IDPs.

The IID Commander's order to De Leon was given as a consequence of the Nov. 16, 2008 visit of Sec. Gilberto Teodoro of the Department of National Defense (DND) to the municipalities of Munai and Poona Piagapo, LDN.

Meanwhile, Pajarito he urged the local people to report the presence of lawless groups, such as those of the LMG so the military and police can take action.

"This is important to ensure the safety of the people and the restoration of peace in their communities," the IID Commander said.

Pajarito also ordered his subordinates to extend security and assistance to agencies particularly those involved in the implementation of developmental projects in their AOR.

On the other hand, De Leon reported that the communities in the province are now secured from the LMG noting the absence of any atrocity for quite sometime, as well, as the successful conduct of special events and the smooth trips of visiting dignitaries.

He said despite threats, Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo flew direct from her Nov. 14 overseas trip to Nunungan, a hinterland town of the province, to effectively inspect a road project in the area.

"All these indicate that development projects to rehabilitate LDN can now take a full swing," De Leon concludes. (I04 Bde, IID, PA) [top]
