Surrenderees not MILF but Christians, Higaonons of Iligan City

August 22, 2008

The 31 so-called surrenderees from Commander Bravo Macapaar are not MILF but Higaonons and Christians from Rugongen, Iligan City. This was the clarification made to Luwaran by an aide of Bravo yesterday

However, he admitted the 31 had a very brief stint with Bravo’s group last year but only to return to their places since.

They are not really with the MILF, but mere curious seekers with life in the mountains, the aide added.

He said it is unfortunate that the government is using every means to discredit the MILF to cover up its treachery in Kuala Lumpur for not signing the Memorandum of Agreement on Ancestral Domain (MOA-AD) in Malaysia last
