ARMM gov cites role of security forces in reform

by Rene V. Carbayas

ISABELA CITY, Basilan, Jan 16 (PIA) -– Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) caretaker Mujiv Hataman cited the role of government security forces in its quest to institute reforms in the region.

The Bureau of Public Information said Hataman met recently with top military and police officials in charge of security forces within the region to discuss peace and security matters in ARMM and make way for the reorganization of the Regional Peace and Order Council (RPOC) slated this month.

Hataman, who has been placed in charge of the region by President Benigno Aquino III to institute reform, told police and military commanders that his drive to rid the ARMM of some of its perennial problems will not be successful without the help of security forces operating within the region.

Hataman lamented that security issues in ARMM are somehow attributed to widespread corruption and bad governance.

The appointed ARMM chief presented his reform agenda before officials of the military and police force after receiving security briefings on the different areas of ARMM.

He had earlier announced his plan to reorganize and convene the region’s peace and order council to meet the demands of his reform agenda and set out on one of its main pillars—peace and security.
