SHARIFF AGUAK, Maguindanao, Philippines — The Ampatuans have entrusted their arsenal for safekeeping to a Moro Islamic Liberation Front commander related to patriarch Maguindanao Gov. Andal Ampatuan Sr. after the military seized more than 800 of the clan’s firearms, according to relatives.

A relative of Ampatuan Sr. said many of his firearms were brought out of Shariff Aguak immediately after the Nov. 26 arrest of his son, Datu Unsay Mayor Andal Ampatuan Jr.

“The old man (Ampatuan Sr.) has very strong connections with the police and the military before the incident so there was really no problem for him building a very strong private militia,” said an Ampatuan who is a hadji, one that has gone on pilgrimage to Mecca.

A source who asked not to be named said the firearms seized by soldiers and policemen in Shariff Aguak and nearby towns are not even half of the Ampatuan arsenal.

“Talks have been circulating that they have turned over hundreds to certain rebel groups whose leaders are related to them,” the source said.

This confirms what everyone has in their minds but are afraid to say it in public. They are all in cahoots with each other…after all they have families that are members of one insurgency group or another.  Zamboanga City mayor is right with his stance (here) against any form of inclusion to Automous Region Muslim Mindanao (map) in the Bangsamoro Juridical Entity (as they would like to call it)
