15 Mar NEWS ALERT: Questions on the citizenship of MILF’s Iqbal and chairman Murad Ebrahim
“Sir si Milf Chairman Murad at Iqbal, ay walang Philippine Passport. Tuwing lumalabas sila gamit nila Malaysia passport. So sa madaling salita lahat na nangyayari ang author is Malaysia.”
REPORTS: Thus was the message received by former Interior Secretary Rafael Alunan in his facebook, informing him of the nationality of the MILF Chairman Al-Haj Murad Ebrahim and MILF peace panel chairman Mohagher Iqbal. If this were true, then we are negotiating peace, drafting a law that creates a sub-state for foreign nationals? Are we selling our Mindanao to Malaysia?
These allegations were also raised by John Petalcorin, director for communications of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) in their Facebook page. Petalcorin said that both Iqbal and Murad are not Filipino citizens but are actually Malaysians.
“The Philippine Law prohibits foreigners participating in rebellion and dissident political activism in Philippines,” Petalcorin stated. “We, the citizens of the Republic of the Philippines, demand the immediate arrest and entry ban of Iqbal and Murad,” he added.
Davao City Representative Karlo Alexei Nograles called on the House of Representatives Ad Hoc Committee to look into this matter.
THE IMPLICATION: IF it is true that the Congress is writing the Bangsamoro Basic Law for Malaysians then they in Congress will be criminally liable for acts of treason for selling out the country’s sovereignty to foreign nationals.
JUAN SAYS: IF these allegations were true, shall we say that the peace panel, the President and all the other government agencies concerned were NOT privy to the nationalities of the armed group? IF these were true, can the peace panel, the President and all other government agencies involved, be charged with treason? IF these were true, how can they do that do our country? How can they neglect this minute information regarding those who are they are negotiating with?
IF these were proven to be true, Chairman Iqbal sir, sabi ninyo TIWALA lang. Sa condom na lang po ba may TRUST?
