MANILA (Mabuhay) – The Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) on Wednesday assured the Senate that it will be provided with a copy of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF)’s report on the Jan. 25 Mamasapano incident, which left over 60 people dead.

An OPAPP statement said Secretary Ging Deles, presidential adviser on the peace process, already sent a letter to Senator Ferdinand Marcos, who chairs the panel deliberating on the draft Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL), saying that the report will be forwarded to the Senate once the Philippine government secures a copy of the document.

The MILF sent its report on the Mamasapano incident to the International Monitoring Team (IMT), which monitors the ceasefire between the Philippine government and the secessionist group. The OPAPP is still awaiting the IMT’s formal transmittal of the MILF report. (MNS)
