GEN. SANTOS CITy, Philippines - Members of the peace and order council in Maguindanao on Saturday unanimously endorsed two provincial security blueprints complementing Malacañang’s Mindanao’s peace process.
The council, chaired by Gov. Esmael Mangudadatu, also reaffirmed its support to President Benigno Aquino III’s ongoing peace overture with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and to the continuing enforcement of the July 1997 government-MILF ceasefire accord.
The council, whose members include Senior Supt. Rudelio Jocson of the provincial police and Major Gen. Edmundo Pangilinan of the Army’s 6th Infantry Division, launched during their Saturday meeting here the provincial Local Anti-Criminality Action Plan (LACAP) and the Peace and Order and Public Safety Plan (POPSP), both meant to sustain the fragile peace now in Maguindanao.
