Eastern Mindanao

Western Mindanao

THE PHILIPPINE government has told the European Union it will no longer accept development aid from the bloc, putting at risk programs to assist poor and conflict-hit regions in the country's south, Europe's ambassador said. Ambassador Franz Jessen said the decision to cut aid from the EU, a strong critic of President Rodrigo Duterte's drugs war, would mean the loss

of about 250 million euros (P13.89 billion) worth of grants mostly allocated to Muslim communities. Manila's move comes days after Duterte won billions of dollars in pledges from China after attending the Belt and Road summit in Beijing. "The Philippine government has informed us they no longer accept new EU grants," Jessen said without elaborating. Continue on page 2

Islamic State threatens Muslim scholars

Continued fr om page 1 from “To those who have Ulama relatives, warn your parents, brothers, and children not to attend the said summit because if something happens to them along the way or in the end, don’t tell us you were not warned,” a statement released by the Dawlah Islamiya said. ARMM Interior Secretary Noor Hafizullah Abdullah confirmed the threat, but said the summit held from May 12-14 was a big success with hundreds of ulama and religious leaders and other stake holders attended the event.

Abdullah said because of the threat they are now seriously considering holding more anti-terrorism and antiillegal drugs forums and summits in 5 provinces under the autonomous region. He said the summit is an initial step of the ARMM gover nment to enlist the support of Islamic scholars to combat terrorism. “The decision to bring down the issue at the local government level came after the Dawlah Islamiya, which has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, issued a statement threatening the ulama who recently

attended the three-day summit against terrorism in Cotabato City,” Abdullah said. He said that ARMM’s 116 municipalities and two cities – Lamitan and Marawi – will soon conduct summit against terrorism and illegal drugs to prevent and combat the rising threats of terrorism, as well as to strengthen the role of the local governments in promoting peace and security. “The summit would synchronize measures on how to restrain criminality, terrorism and illegal drugs, which affect the peace and order situation

Troops hunt down Indon militants aiding local jihadists COTABATO CITY – Local jihadists are believed to be coddling at least 6 Indonesian militants who are all bomb experts that managed to sneak in southern Philippines to fight alongside their Filipino counterparts in Mindanao, the army said. It said security forces launched an operation aimed at preventing terror attacks by these foreigners who were reported to be working with the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters under Ismael

Abdulmalik and Salahuddin Hassan in the restive province of Maguindanao. Major General Arnel dela Vega, commander of the 6th Infantry Division, said there were also reports that at least 8 Singaporeans and Malaysian militants are also in the region where security forces clashed recently with BIFF members in several areas in the towns of Salibu, Pagatin, Mamasapano and Shariff Aguak. He said troops recov-

ered assorted weapons and ammunition, including improvised explosives left behind by the BIFF. The war materials were also presented to journalists during a news conference presided by Dela Vega at the army headquarters in Datu Odin Sinsuat town. The army insisted that at least 31 BIFF members were allegedly killed in the clashes, but troops recovered not even a single body of militants. (Rhoderick Beñez)

Human rights groups condemn arrests of NPA leader, bishop

PAGADIAN CITY – Human rights groups condemned the recent arrest of a communist rebel leader and a bishop at a military checkpoint in Ozamiz City in the southern Filipino province of Misamis Occidental. Barug Katungod Mindanao accused the military of false charges against Rommel Salinas, of the New People’s Army, who is wanted by authorities for a string of murder cases and other high-profile crimes in western Mindanao. A grenade was also recovered by security forces from Salinas’ possession. Salinas was with Bishop Carlo Morales, of the Philippine Independent Church,

the country’s second largest Christian denomination. Morales was with his wife, Teofina, and their driver Sadome Dalid, in a van when security forces flagged down the vehicle following intelligence report that it was transporting a senior rebel leader. All four did not resist arrest and are being investigated separately by the police. It was not immediately known why Morales and his wife were with the NPA leader or if they were protecting Salinas. Brigadier General Rolando Joselito Bautista, commander of the 1st Infantry Division, said the arrest of Salinas was the result of a

long intelligence work. “Best coordination work from the community, LGU (local government units), PNP (Philippine National Police), and the Army led to the capture of one of the highest ranking CPP-NPA (Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army) leader in Western Mindanao,” he said in a statement following the capture of Salinas. The NPA, which is currently negotiating peace with Manila, did not issue any statement, but the rebel group has been fighting for many decades now for the establishment of a communist state in the country.

in the region. The local governments must be at the forefront of this battle and must have a major role in combating terrorism. The summit will help confront terrorism and extremism at the municipal level,” Abdullah said. He said the local governments play a vital role in the fight against terrorism and illegal drugs because local chief executives and officials could help prevent violence in their respective areas. “With close coordination, mutual support and cooperation at all times can help put an end to terrorism. I can see that the local governments in the region are very active in this fight in order to have peaceful and progressive communities. Liliit ang mundo ng mga teroristang grupo kapag nakita nila na lahat ay nagtutulungan to fight terror acts,” Abdullah said. For his part, ARMM Governor Mujiv Hataman said: “Islamic scholars can contribute largely to the advocacy against terrorism by educating

DILG-ARMM Secretary Noor Hafizullah 'Kirby' Abdullah. (Mindanao Examiner Photo by Rhoderick Beñez) people about the true teachings of Islam, most especially on the principles of justice, compassion, peace, and harmony. The national

government considers terrorism as an urgent and critical national security threat.” (Mindanao Examiner. With a report from Rhoderick Beñez)

Duterte declines EU aid after securing billions from China

Continued fr om page 1 from He said the EU will issue a statement officially announcing the end of its funding agreement with the Philippines. There was no immediate response from the Philippines' foreign ministry. Duterte says European nations don't understand the extent of the narcotics problem in the Philippines. Official data from the Philippine National Police pegs the total number of homicide cases since Duterte came into power at 9,432. Of this number, 1,847

are said to be drug-related, while 1,894 are not. The remaining 5,691, approximately 60% of the total figure, are still under investigation. The EU has been providing support to Manila's efforts to end nearly 50 years of Muslim rebellion in a conflict that has killed more than 120,000 people, displaced 1 million and stunted growth in one of the country's resource-rich regions. It granted the Philippines 130 million euros in development assistance between 2007-2013. In 2015, it

pledged 325 million euros over four years to finance projects in Muslim Mindanao after Manila signed a peace deal with rebels in March 2014. But Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia said Duterte could take back his rejection of the EU aid. Pernia said it was not a policy, referring to the government’s rejection of the EU aid. "On face value, it appears to be not a good move, but I don't think it's not going to remain as such,” he said. (Reuters, Mindanao Examiner)

3 warring Maguindanao clans end feud, sign peace accord

Three Muslim warring clans end feud following a peace deal in Maguindanao province in southern Philippines. (Mindanao Examiner Photos by Rhoderick Beñez) Continued fr om page 1 from All clan members, mostly from Iranun families, peacefully ended their rifts in Islamic religious rites and signing of peace pact recently that put an end to 15 years of violence that stemmed from a land conflict and personal issues, according to security officials. They said family leaders and members of the 6 clans exchanged handshakes and embraced each

other after swearing to the Holy Quran before Maguindanao Governor Esmael Mangudadatu and Major General Arnel Dela Vega, commander of the 6th Infantry Division, as well as other local and military officials as witnesses. The conflicts involving Abo and Mamalakat and Taaral and Mamaco started from a land dispute while Pacasma and Wadia was triggered by personal issues, said Dela Vega. “Do

not bring back the past animosities to prevent the conflict to escalate,” he told clan members. The warring clans also surrendered weapons – four automatic rifle, a Barrette sniper rifle and a 12-gauge shot gun to finally put an end to their conflicts. Clan members will be given a livestock in exchange for the weapons as part of the livelihood program of the Department of Agriculture. (Rhoderick Beñez)

Sayyaf in Sabah kidnappings captured in Tawi-Tawi

Cooperatives members protest a proposed law that will impose taxes on cooperatives May 13, 2017 in Kidapawan City in North Cotabato province. (Mindanao Examiner Photo by Rhoderick Beñez)

Coop members protest proposed tax laws KIDAPAWAN CITY – Members of cooperatives held a rally to protest a proposal to imposed taxes on cooperatives in the country. The protesters, many of them carrying placards and streamers, marched

on the streets of Kidapawan City and called on Congress not to pursue with the tax proposal to repeal the law granting tax exemption to cooperatives. The proposed bills on the Rationalization of Fis-

cal Investment Incentives pending in Congress since last year are aimed at repealing Articles 60 and 61 of Republic Act 9520 or the Cooperative Code of the Philippines. (Rhoderick Beñez)

Universal Robina buys 10 tons of Robusta coffee in Sulu

Continued fr om page 1 from “Coffee Princess” Kumalah Elardo, leader of PAPMPC, also told DARARMM that to the purchase order, Universal Robina’s research group carefully examined the harvest from her group to make sure the Robusta coffee the company would buy is of high quality. PAPMPC is also responsible in the production of the Kahawa Sug Royal Coffee made from Robusta coffee beans and Kahawa Kubing Royal Coffee, which is roasted civet coffee, and these products have received recognition from the international market, especially in Southeast Asian countries. The Sulu Royal Coffee has achieved many successes and recognition in the past under the leadership of

Kumalah. The cooperative abides by its “pick red”, or picked ripe, policy in harvesting as well as other disciplined measures to ensure high quality of its produce. The growing coffee industry in Panamao, Sulu has been observed to provide opportunity for the community to be productive. “Dati nagkakabayo lang ang mga farmers, ngayon naka motorsiklo na sila at semento na rin ang kanilang mga bahay.” (In the past, the farmers rely on horses for transport, now they have motorcycles…also, their houses are now concreted),” Elardo said. Most of the workers and members of the cooperative are now focused in produc-

ing high-quality coffee. Each member of the household in Kandayok ARC is now involved in coffee production, she said. PAPMPC and the Kandayok ARC in Sulu are recipients of DAR-ARMM’s Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services or ARCCESS, project. The community received common service facilities, agri-enterprise development and rural infrastructure from the regional government through that project. The development and the reach of PAPMPC coffee products will soon find their way home and inspire more positive changes to the farmers in Sulu and their families. (Bureau of Public Information)

Chinese First Lady hosts spouses of foreign delegation heads attending Belt and Road Forum

PENG LIYUAN, wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping, invited the partners of leaders attending the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation to the Palace Museum in Beijing. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s spouse, Honeylet Avanceña, was among those who toured Beijing with Peng.

The visitors took part in a group photo in front of the Hall of Supreme Harmony, and listened to a brief history of the Palace Museum and visited an exhibition featuring antiques associated with ancient trade routes. Later in a garden of the Palace Museum, an exhibition area displayed

Beijing's intangible cultural heritage programs, and the guests enjoyed some traditional Chinese artistic performances. Peng expressed her wish that the guests would be part of more fruitful exchanges and cooperation between China and their home countries. (Xinhua/ Mindanao Examiner)

PHILIPPINE troops captured an Abu Sayyaf militant involved in cross-border kidnappings in Sabah in Malaysia, officials said. Officials said Sahidul Bandhala Jikiri was captured recently after villagers in Sitangkai town in Tawi-Tawi province allegedly tipped off the military about his involvement with the notorious group tied to the Islamic State. Jikiri, who is currently being interrogated by authorities, admitted his roles in kidnappings in Sabah and that some of the ransoms were used to fund terror activities and piracy in the sea bordering the Philippines and Malaysia. Army Captain Jo-ann Petinglay, a spokeswoman for the Western Mindanao Command, said the cooperation of civilians and support of the local government led to Jikiri’s fall. “The civilians are really helping us in stopping Abu Sayyaf atrocities and of course with the support of local government leaders. The operation against the Abu Sayyaf is continuing,” she said. Petinglay said government soldiers also seized over the weekend an Abu Sayyaf encampment on a remote hilltop village in Sumisip town in Basilan province. She said troops recovered homemade bomb components left behind by

militants under Puruji Indama after engaging them in a firefight. Military aircrafts, said added, provided close air support while ground troops pounded the area with artillery fire. Petinglay said troops discovered about a dozen makeshift tents at the encampment that could accommodate at least 40 militants. Quoting reports from army commanders in Basilan, Petinglay said as many as 20 militants were killed in the clashes since May 11, but the military could not provide proofs of the claims except for information allegedly provided by civilians and former militants who surrendered to them. Both Tawi-Tawi and Basilan belong to the Muslim autonomous region where security forces are battling the Abu Sayyaf which has been fighting for the establishment of a caliphate in the country. Regional Governor Mujiv Hataman also convened recently some 300 Ulama or Islamic scholars and religious leaders to seek help in an effort to fight extremism and terrorism, especially the violent influence of the Islamic State. The three-day summit held in Cotabato City was also attended by police and military officials and other peace advocates and other

stakeholders not only in the autonomous region, but also in Mindanao. Hataman said terrorists use inappropriate interpretations of Islamic principles to strengthen their cause and encourage the commission of vicious acts. “We urge our Ulama that if we are on the right position, we should move to show what is right, and let’s condemn what is wrong,” he said, adding, the Philippines now ranked 12th among the countries heavily affected by terrorism according to the 2016 Global Terrorism Index of the Institute for Economics and Peace. He said the presence of the Abu Sayyaf and the Maute group, including other terrorist groups in the region brings the whole of ARMM at the forefront of the fight against terrorism in the country. Hataman said Muslim scholars can contribute to the advocacy against terrorism by educating people about the true teachings of Islam most especially on the principles of justice, compassion, peace and harmony. Hataman emphasized that Islam means peace “and this can automatically counter terrorism and extremism, because peace in Islam is a key of association not isolation; it is a key of accommodation not marginalization.” (Mindanao Examiner)

Security forces raid terrorists’ hideout in Lanao Sur, 11 people arrested MAGUINDANAO – Security forces raided a hideout of a Filipino jihadist Maute group and arrested 11 people in Lanao del Sur on Monday as operations continue against their companions in the troubled province, officials said. Officials said policemen and soldiers also seized assorted weapons, including a machine gun and an antitank rocket from the hideout in the village of Romagondong in Marogong town. The operation was so carefully hatched that all those arrested were caught by surprise by the raid and were not able to fight back security forces. Those arrested have been identified as Abdullah Daos, Nasif Esmael, Gutingon Alah, Tayro

Mamanoc, Ekmad Esmail, Alvin Adam, Monib Gutumongan, Ibrahim Caronan, Cayrodin Ditarongan, Camsi Lao, and Gaso Mazo Badua. All of them were being interrogated by authorities and initial investigations showed that the group may be planning to launch fresh attacks. “As per initial debriefing from the arrested personalities, the Maute group is using the place as staging areas whenever they plan to conduct atrocities and bombing of different targets. They also revealed that most of the time, they provide and prepare the logistical requirements of their fellow Maute group members when planning for a specific terror act,” said Major

General Arnel dela Vega, commander of the 6th Infantry Division. He said the raiders seized one 60mm mortar, one M60 machine gun, one Barrette sniper rifle, one B40 rocket-propelled grenade, one M14 rifle, one M16 rifle, one Garand rifle, and one Carbine rifle. Lieutenant General Carlito Galvez Jr, chief of the Western Mindanao Command, praised the capture of the militants and lauded troops for the successful mission. He said the Maute group continues to recruit members, especially the youth, and is believed to be working with other militants from the Ansar Khilafah Philippines operating in Mindanao.

HEALTH: Masakit Ang Likod At Balakang: Heto Ang Gagawin Payo ni Dr. Willie T. Ong ANG sakit sa likod at balakang ay nararamdaman ng halos lahat ng tao. Nag-uumpisa ito ng edad 40 pataas. Kung ika’y sobra sa timbang, may problema sa likod (tulad ng Scoliosis), o hindi nageehersisyo, mas maaga mo itong mararamdaman. Bakit sumasakit ang likod? Ang kadalasang dahilan ng pagsakit sa likod ay ang muscle strain o sprain, o iyung sakit ng kalamnan. Para bang napilay ang likod. Ang sanhi nito ay ang pagkapuwersa sa masel sa likod dahil sa (1.) maling posisyon sa pagtulog; (2.) maling pag-upo (nakakuba); (3.) maling pagbubuhat (nakayuko kung magbuhat) o nagbuhat ng sobrang bigat; (4.) sobra sa timbang, at (5.) pagka-edad (arthritis). Ano ang gagawin? 1. Kung ika’y sobra sa timbang, kailangang magpapayat. Hindi kasi kaya ng likod mo ang bigat ng iyong tiyan! 2. Mag-ehersisyo kapag pawala na ang sakit sa likod. Napakahalaga ng ehersisyo. 3. Palakasin ang masel sa ating likod. Magehersisyo ng katamtaman lang. Puwedeng gumamit ng mga kaunting pabigat

Dr. Willie T. Ong (weights). Kapag lumakas ang masel ng ating katawan, hindi na sasakit ang ating likod. 4. Mag-swimming o pumunta sa gym. Magandang pampalakas ng likod ang swimming. Dahan-dahan din ang pagehersisyo sa gym. 5. Huwag magbuhat ng mabibigat. Kung mayroon kang bubuhatin, magpatulong sa isang kasama para kalahati lang ang bigat. Mag-squat at gamitin ang lakas ng hita para maiangat ang dinadala. Panatilihing deretso ang likod. Huwag yumuko para magbuhat. Mali iyan! 6. Umupo ng deretso ang likod. Maglagay ng suporta (maliit na unan) sa ating upuan para laging naka-straight ang ating likod. 7. Huwag maglakad o umu¬po nang matagal.

Mapapagod ang ating likod kapag nakapirmi sa isang puwesto. Ang pinakamaganda sa likod ay ang paghiga sa kama. 8. Pumili ng katamtamang kutson na tulugan. Huwag ‘yung sobrang lambot na lumulundo ang iyong likod. At huwag din matulog sa papag dahil sobrang tigas ito. 9. Matulog ng naka-“s” ang katawan. Humiga ng patihaya. Mag-unan para may suporta sa ulo at leeg. Maglagay pa ng isang unan sa ilalim ng tuhod para nakataas ito. Mas komportable sa likod ang nakabaluktot ang tuhod. 10. Kung nakatagilid kang matulog, maglagay ng unan sa pagitan ng iyong hita. Ito ay para huwag bumaluktot masyado ang ating hita at mapuwersa ang likod. 11. Puwedeng lagyan ng medyo mainit na bagay sa ating likod (warm compress). 12. Huwag hilutin o padaganan ang likod. Baka lalo pang mapilay ito. Puwedeng magpamasahe ng dahan-dahan lang para lumuwag ang masel. Kapag hindi nawala ang sakit sa loob ng 2 linggo, magpa-konsulta sa isang rehabilitation medicine doctor o orthopedic surgeon. Good luck po.

Woman pilot excels in male-dominated field CEBU CITY - There are no limits to what women can do and Philippine Air Force (PAF) pilot Major Florriane Bacus-Reyes has proven this by showing that women can also excel in a male-dominated field of expertise. The 34-year-old pilot has a record of flying several aircrafts including the N22 Nomad plane, Fokker F27, and the CASA C-295 or the airbus of the military. Currently, Reyes is among the 20 female pilots assigned at the Brig. Gen. Benito Ebuen Air Base in Lapu-Lapu City. So, how did she end up in this career path? Reyes shared that it was not part of her plans to become a pilot. She had to set aside her own dreams in order to fulfill the dreams of her father.After finishing her degree in Business Management at the University of the Philippines Cebu in 2003, her father asked her to take the entrance examinations for the

Philippine Air Force Officers Candidate School (PAFOCS). Although it wasn't her dream, she said she learned to love it as she eagerly passed the exams and entered training. Reyes said it was also a tough year for them, especially for her. Women during the training had their physical disadvantages compared to their male counterparts. But this did not allow her to lose sight of her goal in becoming a pilot. "It was really mentally and physically exhausting but what is ironic is you would expect men not to quit during training and it will be the women who will quit. But in our class of 54, seven men quit. Forty-seven graduated. No woman quit. I think we are stronger mentally and psychologically, women are stronger," she said. Now more than a decade in the military service, Reyes said there are more opportunities for her and for other women pilots in the organization. Equal opportunities for promotion and benefits

are also given to women. Aside from this, more and more women are encouraged to join their ranks. She attributed this to the organization which also celebrates accomplishments of the women side by side with the men. "Daghan opportunities as long as makit-an nila nga that you excel in your job ihatag nila ang position, regardless of your gender (There are many opportunities as long as they can see that you excel in your job, they will give the position, regardless of your gender)," she said. Reyes just got back to her flying job after her maternity leave. She is married to a Philippine Air Force pilot, who was her classmate back in PAFOCS. They are blessed with two kids. Reyes urged other women not to limit themselves. "There are no limits to what we can do. You should be educated and committed to what you want to achieve," she said. (Carmel Loise Matus)

Economy up in Central Visayas CEBU CITY - The economy of Central Visayas accelerated to 8.8% in 2016, higher than the 4.9% recorded growth in 2015 and in the recent presentation of the 2016 Gross Regional Domestic Product (GRDP), it was learned the continued growth was largely attributed to the upsurge of industry. The 2016 GRDP was presented by Philippine Statistics Authority 7 Regional Director Ronaldo Taghap simultaneous with the rest of the regions in the country. He said the GRDP is not a study, but a compilation of all data from other government agencies. “GRDP measures the performance of the economy of the region,� he said. The biggest contribu-

ARMM

tor to the economy is the Services sector with 55.5% share, although this is slower than the 57% share recorded in the previous year. The Industry Sector followed at 39.1% leaving behind Agriculture, Hunting, Forestry and Fishing (AHFF) with 5.4% share. Manufacturing and Electricity, Gas and Water Supply (EGWS) continued to accelerate by 5.9% and 7.7%, individually. The Mining and Quarrying on the other hand, decelerated to 1% from the growth of 3% in the previous year. Temporarily, services decelerated to 5.9% in 2016 and lower than the 8.7% growth last year. Taghap also said the deceleration was due to the slowing down of transportation storage and

communication with 5.1% in 2016 as compared to the 10.9% in 2015. Real Estate, Renting and Business Activities maintains its steady pace at 7.1% in 2016. And finally, AHFF suffered reversal in 2016, recording a negative 0.6% as compared to the 2.3% growth in previous year. The reversal was due to the turnaround of agriculture and forestry which pulled down by 1.4 growth percentage. In contrast, Fishing recovered in 2016 as it grows by 4.4% from a decline of 0.7% in 2015. In the overall 8.8% growth of the region, Industry contributed 5.4% while Services shared 3.4%. AHFF, however, pulled down the growth by 0.04%. (Ferliza Calizar-Contratista and Diana Rose Decena)
