‘Secrecy’ shrouds Islamic peace talks

‘Secrecy’ shrouds Moro peace talks

Sun Star 02/04/10 By Bong Garcia

ZAMBOANGA City Mayor Celso Lobregat said the ongoing peace process between the government and Moro rebels is shrouded with secrecy and non-transparency.

He said the entire government panel headed by Undersecretary Rafael Seguis that has been talking peace with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) did not show up at the congressional hearing last Monday, as Malacañang had apparently not given the official the clearance to appear.

The congressional hearing was conducted in relation to a bill filed by first district Congresswoman Ma. Isabelle Climaco-Salazar, urging the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process to disclose specific details concerning the renewed peace talks with the MILF.

Lobregat, who attended the hearing, said the MILF spokesman, North Cotabato Vice Governor Emmanuel Piñol and Presidential Peace Adviser Annabelle Abaya, among other personalities, attended the hearing.
