No concrete proof of MILF help for JI’


GENERAL SANTOS CITY - The commander of 604th Army Brigade in Tacurong City rejected suggestions that the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) has direct links to Jemaah Islamiah (JI).

However, the high-ranking military officer in Central Mindanao confirmed that the dreaded Abu Sayyaf Group does have a tactical alliance with the JI. Their immediate objective, he added, is to launch major attacks on military detachments and government facilities in South Cotabato and Sultan Kudarat.

Col. Pines Tabas said the military has heightened its alert status in the two provinces and other sensitive spots.

Some renegade members of the MILF, according to Tabas, do provide sanctuary to JI operatives. In fact, he said, some MILF regulars serve as front liners in the terror attacks in Mindanao. But there is no concrete evidence that largest Islamic separatist group in Mindanao supports the objectives or participates in the activities of the international terrorist organization.

"Our intelligence network has not been able to establish that an alliance exists between the two," the officer said.

Earlier, the Army had said the MILF-Special Operations Group provided sanctuary to JI leaders, Umar Patek and Dulmatin, at the MILF stronghold in Mindanao. The two are blamed for the 2002 bombing in Bali, Indonesia.

The pronouncement cleared the MILF of any involvement in twin bomb attacks that occurred over a week ago. The first rocked the regional complex of the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao in Cotabato City, while the second went off in the business district of Kidapawan, North Cotabato. A number of people were injured including a member of a bomb disposal team.

A month ago, a homemade bomb exploded near the house of Gov. Zaldy Ampatuan of ARRM. Ampatuan escaped unscathed, but one of his security escorts and others sustained shrapnel wounds.

Security officials blamed the MILF special operations group for the series of terror attacks in the past years. They pointed to Shamir Salamat, brother of the late MILF chairman Hasim Salamat, as the leader. Isagani P. Palma

AFP to beef up forces after Southcom split
By Edith Regalado
The Philippine Star 08/22/2006

http://www.philstar.com/philstar/NEWS200608229902.htm

DAVAO CITY — With the plan to divide the Southern Command (Southcom) into two units to better address security threats in the South, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) said it is set to beef up forces in that part of the country.

[Edited]

Preparatory to the setting up of this new AFP command was the establishment last week of a new major unit —the 10th Infantry (Agila) Division based at the Naval Forces Eastern Mindanao headquarters in Camp Panacan here.

[Edited]

Along with the setting up of the 10th ID was the deactivation and renaming of the 404th and 601st Infantry Brigades, which would now both be under the new Army division.

The 404th and 601st brigades were renamed 1001st and 1002nd Infantry Brigades, respectively. The two units would be joined in by the brigade-sized Task Force Davao to comprise the over 5,000 personnel of the 10th ID.

Anyone here know who the new CO for the 604th Infantry Brigade is?

Colonel relieved of post for gambling
By Arlie Calalo

http://www.manilastandardtoday.com/?page=regions2_nov15_2006

THE military high command sacked an Army brigade commander based in Mindanao after he was photographed placing bets in a cockfighting arena in Tacurong City.

Col. Felipe Tabas Jr., commander of the 604th Brigade based in Isulan, Sultan Kudarat, was fired and restricted to the Army’s Fort Bonifacio headquarters. He was replaced by Col. Danilo Garcia.

“He was relieved about two or three weeks ago when he was caught engaged in cockfighting in his area of responsibility. That is gambling and that is against our rules,” a military source said.

“Cockfighting is against military law, that is an ungentlemanly act. He may be charged for violation of the Articles of War for conduct unbecoming of an officer and a gentleman,” the source said, adding that charges before a general court martial are being prepared by the Provost Marshal.

Army chief Romeo Tolentino confirmed Tabas was fired, but declined to give details.

Tabas, a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1976, may also face separate dismissal proceedings which will be conducted by the Army’s efficiency and separation board.

Tabas served as commander of the defunct Logistics Command during the time of former military chief Angelo Reyes, who is now the secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

An officer privy to the investigation said Tabas’ promotion to brigadier general might also be delayed because of the incident. “He is due for promotion because his position calls for a one-star general and that might be affected. That is regrettable,” he said.

2 blasts scuttle SK vote canvass
By Nelson C. Bagaforo and Allen V. Estabillo

http://www.sunstar.com.ph/static/dav/2007/05/24/news/2.blasts.scuttle.sk.vote.canvass.html

TWO grenades simultaneously exploded inside the municipal hall compound in Isulan, Sultan Kudarat, forcing the municipal board of canvassers to hastily abandon the town council's session hall where the canvassing of election returns was being held.

As of this writing Wednesday, members of the board of canvassers have yet to return their post to continue the official counting of votes.

Brigadier General Danilo Garcia, commander of 601st Infantry Brigade, Wednesday said no one was hurt or killed in the simultaneous explosion of M-79 grenades, which occurred at about 9 p.m. in front of the town hall and at the back of gasoline station, a few meters away.

"It was fired from undetermined origin. This is politically-motivated. The perpetrators wanted to make a scenario. The identity of the perpetrators is still the subject of investigations," Garcia said.

The attacks, he said, only damaged the windshield of a motorcycle parked outside the municipal hall.

Superintendent Danilo Posadas, Isulan police chief, said the explosions eventually added more tension to the protest-marred canvassing of votes in the municipality.

He said the members of the board of canvassers immediately decided to stop the canvassing and leave the area due to concerns over their safety.

"We are still investigating the incident but we are looking at the possibility that this is politically-motivated," Posadas said.

On May 8, eight people were killed and 30 others were wounded in a bomb attack in nearby Tacurong City.

The attacks were blamed by military and police to Al-Qaeda linked Jemaah Islamiyah.

Isulan Vice Mayor Alfonso Dimasuay, who is leading the mayoral race over three other candidates by a slim margin, said the explosions delayed anew his supposed proclamation Tuesday night.

He said at least seven election returns have yet to be canvassed by the board of canvassers when it decided to suspend again its proceedings.

As of Wednesday morning, Dimasuay, who ran under the opposition Nationalist People's Coalition (NPC), said it was not clear when the municipal board of canvassers, the second set convened by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) since last week, would proceed with the canvassing.

He said there were reports that the members of the board of canvassers have confided to Comelec provincial supervisor Paisal Tanjili that they are no longer inclined to return to their posts because of the incident.

On Friday evening, the original members of the board of canvassers requested for their relief following a grenade explosion at the town's public market.

The Comelec also replaced election officer Mamorantao Capampangan with Malic Sansarona to head the municipal board of canvassers.

The Friday explosion came after the camp of Dimasuay raised objections during the canvassing after finding alleged tampering in several election returns from Barangay Lagandang.

"We found alterations in the returns, wherein my tally was shaved by at least 400 votes," Dimasuay said.

Despite the alleged vote-shaving, Dimasuay said he maintained a slim lead over closest rival Diosdado Palasigue of the administration-backed Kabalikat ng Malayang Pilipino (Kampi).

Since last week, hundreds of supporters of the two mayoral bets have been staging a vigil at the municipal hall grounds in a bid to protect the votes of their candidates and protest the alleged massive fraud in the area during the May 14 elections.

The Philippine National Police immediately deployed additional policemen from the regional mobile group to secure the canvassing area and quell the worsening tension brought about by the protests.

Police, Military Tighten Security In Shariff Kabunsuan Province
MINDANAO EXAMINER
Thursday, May 31, 2007 07:10:31 PM

COTABATO CITY (Mindanao Examiner / 31 May) – Philippine authorities tightened security in the southern province of Shariff Kabunsuan due to rising tension between supporters of opposing politicians.

Canvassing of votes in the May 14 national and local polls in the province has been disrupted many times by violence.

An explosion on Wednesday in the province sent policemen and soldiers scampering to secure vital government installations.

Army Col. Mario Mendoza, commander of the 603rd Infantry Brigade, said he deployed troops to help local policemen secure the province, one of five under the Muslim autonomous region, from further violence and to allow the canvassing of the Commission on Elections.

Politicians accused each other of fraud and cheating to win the elections, especially in the gubernatorial race.

Regional police commander, Chief Supt. Joel Goltiao, said they have put up road blocks and checkpoints to prevent the entry of illegal weapons that can be used to stir more violence in the province.

“I am really dismayed about the election here in Shariff Kabunsuan because of very obvious and rampant vote-buying during the election.”

“I personally saw ballot boxes brought to the Maguindanao provincial capitol before they bring them to the Mindanao State University where the canvassing is done” one village elder, Datu Kali, told the independent regional newspaper, the Mindanao Examiner.

Thousands of people held a rally on Tuesday to protest allegations by the opposition of massive cheating and fraud in the province.

Provincial elections chief, lawyer Jocelyn de Mesa, said they would continue the canvassing despite the tension in Shariff Aguak. (Becky de Asis, Special to the Mindanao Examiner)
