Army official urges public to buck MNLF recruitment

Dipolog City (17 June) -- Amid reports that the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) has been recruiting new members in some areas of Zamboanga del Norte, Col. Roland Amarille of the Philippine Army's 101st Infantry Brigade has warned the public not to entertain anybody coming from this group.

Some town mayors have reported to the military and police that the MNLF has been recruiting their constituents especially those living in far-flung barangays to join the group with the promise that each recruit shall be receiving a monthly pay of not less than P30,000.

Although the alleged MNLF recruitment is "not that alarming," Amarille assured the public that he would immediately stop any recruitment taking place in his area of jurisdiction.

The brigade commander even said that these "MNLF agents" who are recruiting here are bogus. "They are just fooling the people to their own benefit," he added.

It was learned that the recruits were being made to pay certain amount purportedly for their membership fee and identification card.

Amarille told the public that the MNLF is only concentrated in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), and so any recruitment made here by this group must be reported to the authorities in order that it can be investigated.

"To avoid getting victimized by this group, let us stay vigilant," the brigade commander advised. (PIA-ZN) [top]
