Cotabato supports President Duterte’s declaration of martial law

The Provincial Government of Cotabato affirmed its support to President Rodrigo Roa Duterte in declaring martial law in Mindanao through a resolution passed by the Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) in an urgent meeting held on May 25, 2016 at the rooftop of the Dr. Rosario P. Diaz, M.D. memorial capitol building.

The PPOC said martial law is not to be feared and that its declaration is aimed at suppressing violence and protecting the people of Mindanao. However, it will endeavor to clarify some gray areas once operational guidelines are set by the national government. Several legal luminaries in the province were invited to expound on martial law.

The PPOC members comprising of mayors, provincial officials, representatives from national agencies and civil society, the Philippine National Police and the Philippine Army were also briefed by the PNP and military officials about the peace and order situation in the province in the aftermath of the violent attacks in Marawi City.

Reports received by the police and the military indicated that there are new personalities that surfaced in the First District and a CPP/NPA-instigated armed conflict in Pres. Roxas.

Addressing the participants of the PPOC conference, Cotabato Governor and PPOC Chair Emmylou “Lala” J. Taliño-Mendoza, called on both the police and the military to remain wary of attempts to sow terror among the people of the province as a spillover of the violent attack of the Maute group in Marawi City recently. She also stressed the urgent need to secure the borders of the province.

The Governor also directed the local chief executives, in coordination with the PNP and the barangay officials to the conduct social profiling in compliance with a PPOC resolution in order to verify the veracity of the identity of residents in their area.

She added that people deserve to know what is going on and these household visitations can serve the purpose. //IDCD-PGO/
