MILF rebels surrender to gov't authorities

ICC General Santos City (3 February) -- The government's no let-up operations against the lawless Moro Islamic Liberation Front group (LMG) eventually paid off with the surrender of ten Moro rebels to government authorities, a military official disclosed.

The rebels were members of the MILF 102nd Base Command led by Commander Abdullah Macapaar alias "Kumander Bravo," Philippine Army's 104th Brigade commander, Colonel Benito de Leon, said.

The rebels turned themselves in to Lieutenant Colonel Juvymax Uy, commander of the Army's 43rd Infantry Battalion in Lanao del Norte.

Government troops are tracking down Bravo, along with two other MILF commanders Ameril Umbra Kato and Aleem Sulayman Pangalian, for separately pillaging several towns in Cotabato Province, Lanao del Norte and Sarangani.

The three wanted commanders remain at large to this day.

Meantime, the military has refused to identify the 10 surrendering rebels saying it will in due time.

With their surrender, the rebels also yielded to the military M16 and Garand rifles, a rocket-propelled grenade, two B40 ammunition and other high-powered firearms, De Leon said.

Courts order to arrest the fugitive MILF commanders and their supporters for various crimes committed such as rebellion, murder, arson, theft, among others has remained in full force. (PIA SarGen) [top]
