Commentary: Absence of guidelines hamper reconciliation program

BONTOC, Mt. Province (9 October) -- The absence of guidelines for the reconciliation program of the government is holding the possible return of some insurgents into the mainstream of society.

This concern cropped up during the recent Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) meeting chaired by Governor Maximo Dalog who said that there is no definite guidelines yet for the council to follow in its efforts to help insurgents who desire to go back to the folds of the law.

Board member Bonifacio Magalong, in the previous PPOC meeting, inquired on the proper procedures to undertake for rebel returnees. He said a New Peoples Army couple is seeking his assistance as they desire to return to mainstream society.

Dalog said he earlier requested the Office of the Presidential Assistant on Peace Process for the guidelines but up to this time his office has not received any.

The Philippine Army representative to the PPOC assured the council to provide the guidelines soon. The POC chairman also requested 1st Lt. Orlando Telan, Operations Officer of the 54th IB, Philippine Army based in Mt Province to help secure the guidelines to facilitate the reconciliation with the rebel returnees.

President Gloria Arroyo declared last June an all-out campaign against the CPP-NPA and part of the campaign is the continuance of the Amnesty Program for those rebels who wants to go back to the government. Andrew Doga-ong(PIA-MP) [top]
