PIA Press Release
2009/06/10

Ex-rebs thank gov't

Roxas City (10 June) -- Rebel returnees have thanked the government for its Social Integration Program (SIP) which awarded them a total of P1.56 million in cash and capital goods that will pump prime a start of their new life.

The appreciation was conveyed by 42 former rebels in the region who received their livelihood benefits and Immediate Assistance Allowance (IAA) during the SIP awarding rites at the Capiz Provincial Capitol Building here.

Presidential Assistant for Western Visayas Raul Banias said that the government's incentive package for rebel returnees will be complemented by the delivery of development programs in areas where there is conflict to end the insurgency problem.

"President Arroyo is very serious to end the insurgency," he noted.

The 24 livelihood beneficiaries have undergone a Livelihood Skills Training Seminar to place them in a position of preparedness in accepting the rice, sari-sari store, hand tractor, trisikad, and cattle packages.

The Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) has called the former rebels who had gone back to the folds of law as Kaupod sa Reporma or "KR."

OPAPP explained that the SIP is a process whereby former rebels and their dependents are provided a set of interventions to facilitate their integration into the "mainstream of society." (PIA) [top]
