An article posted at the luwaran.com, the website of the MILF’s Information Committee on Sunday, reported that Butch Malang, chair of the CCCH-MILF has issued a memo last October 26, protesting the raid led by Sultan Kudarat Police Director Sr. Supt. Raul S. Supiter in houses in Barangay Maguid, Palimbang town.

The memo was addressed to Brig. Gen. Earl D. Baliao, chair of the CCCH of the Philippine government (GPH).

During the raid, police seized high-powered firearms which Malang said were owned by the Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces’s (BIAF) inner Guard Base Command of its National Guard Front.

Malang said the raid “constituted serious violations of specific provisions of the Implementing Operational Guidelines of the GPH and MILF Agreement on the General Cessation of Hostilities (AGCH) signed in 1997.”

Malang requested the Joint CCCH and the International Monitoring Team to conduct a joint probe on the raid and called on the PNP to return the firearms. He said police seized an M-14 rifle, an M-203 rifle and an M-16 rifle, all owned by the BIAF.
