MNLF threatens to sue PH gov’t at ICJ over peace deal with MILF

By |


ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines — Moro National Liberation Front leader Nur Misuari  threatened, on Tuesday, to file in court a suit against the Philippine government for signing a framework agreement with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front to pave the way for the setting up of a new Bangsamoro entity that would replace the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.

Misuari, in an interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer, called the preliminary agreement between the Philippine government and the MILF illegal and something that would never solve the Mindanao problem.

“Instead of solving, this will plunge Mindanao to another war that the Philippine government cannot afford to have at this time,” he said, adding that MNLF members have remained “alive and kicking” through the years.

Believing that the framework agreement violated international laws, Misuari said the MNLF could sue the Philippine government before the International Court of Justice.  The MNLF signed a peace agreement with the Philippine government under the Ramos administration, in 1996, to set up the ARMM.

“This is illegal, we can bring President (Benigno Simeon) Aquino (III) to the International Court, the criminal court, for violating International Law,” he said.

Misuari said what made the framework agreement illegal was the 1996 peace accord that the government had signed with the MNLF.

The accord, he said, was internationally recognized.

“The Philippine Constitution says that this nation is committed to respect International Law, as part of the law of the land. The (1996) Peace Agreement was based on the United Nations charter,” he said.

Misuari also criticized the forging of the framework agreement as “a misguided act on the part of the government.”

“To think that the head of the government peace panel is the head of the UP College of Law, Marvic (Leonen) is a good lawyer, bakit nakalimutan na ba ni Marvic yung International Law. I am a UP law student and UP is a respecter of the International Law,” Misuari added.

The 70-year-old Moro leader also said President Aquino has put to waste his mother’s support for the peace agreement with the MNLF.

“His mother upheld strongly the peace agreement with the MNLF. His father Ninoy also supported the peace process. Sad because after their deaths, it seems that the son is now quite lost,” Misuari said.

He recounted that when he and Cory privately talked about the peace process on Sept. 5, 1986, Aquino was a witness.

“There was this small boy who joined his mother in Sulu. The mother was escorted by Juan Ponce Enrile, Gregorio Honasan, Butch Aquino and former President Fidel Ramos. I told Cory that I want to speak with her in private and she told the rest of her group to leave the room except for one boy, who took photos of me and his mother. It was Noynoy and he witnessed how strongly his mother expressed her commitment to the peace talks,” Misuari said.

Misuari maintained that the 1996 Peace Agreement is incomparable with the framework agreement with the MILF.

“It’s heaven and earth ang difference niyan. In the framework it only covers 5 provinces, while in the Tripoli Agreement, the territories  (span) 13 provinces,” he said.

Misuari said “a wide consultation was slated” to be held in Davao City over the framework agreement and he was expecting a large number of MNLF members to attend.

He also warned of a major trouble because the MNLF felt it was back-stabbed.

“We have been watching, we’ve been quiet, tolerant, silent, complacent, kahit na binabastos na kami (even if we’ve been at the receiving end of rudeness). Despite our silence for how many decades, we are still strong, only the people of Mindanao know the real meaning of peace. We are ready for anything,” he said.

    What has Nur Misuari done for the ARMM? After the Peace Agreement was signed in 1996 he managed to screw everything. He lived a lavish lifestyle and neglected to implement the mandate of that Peace Agreement. He failed to unite the Bangsamoro Peoples. What he did was to divide the financial benefits among his favored lieutenants. When the Philippine Government withdrew support what did he do? He had a tantrum and laid siege to Zamboanga City. After he was set free from detention, he kept silent and left the ARMM to the wiles of thieving officials. Is that what he wants to get back to? Almost everything in the ARMM was a ghost. Such that even the Bangsamoro themselves broke away from the MNLF. Misuari wants to get back to the Tripoli agreements 13 provinces, when he could not even forge Peace and bring development to his very own province. Misuari has lost credibility. If he would be made to account for all the funds that he received after the 1996 Peace Agreement was signed, he will not be able to explain how the monies were spent. He may be liable for plunder! The ARMM failed because Nur Misuari failed as a leader of the Bangsamoro.

      Lies! from the Character assassination propaganda of the Phil, Gov.  to tarnish Misuari’s reputation, so they could run away from their obligations in 1996 Final Agreement. Misuari made a big mistake by signing Agreement with these currapt Gov.

He didn’t care for the people so the MILF was able to thrive and multiply,now Jolo and basilan are the nest of outlaws and leader pretenders! And here comes Misuari complaining, protesting,why don’t you just fade away enjoy your money, huh chairman?

        Please enlighten us on what the government failed to deliver with regards to an autonomous region like the ARMM.

      • http://www.facebook.com/azzam.sulu Azzam Sulu

        one thing to start, Misuari was elected by the People of Mindanao to be the ARMM Governor. the PhilGov. removed him after 4 years, they did not even let him finish his Term! then they (Phil.Gov) gave ARMM to the Ampatuans! because Arroyo needed the Vote of the people in Mindanao! now Pnoy is doing the same thing!

      • zdrx

        i think one of misuari’s failures was disunity among tausogs, maguindanaons, and maranaos. they are one of great religion but their culture are different from each other. tausogs are warriors, maguindanaons are traditional and maranaos are traders. if nur really was a good leader, he could have united them all and used the synergy to propel mindanao to first world.
        but no…i heard he perennially mismanages funds to the detriment of ARMM. i think in one of his tantrums…he let a mini war to erupt against the military…and left his troops to die as he escaped to sabah where malaysian authorities captured him and sent him back to the philippines.
        i think there’s no divide and rule here…as one poster smelled above. the government and the military have had enough of this squabbling minorities that the government want them have one voice. unity among them is less one headache for all…so that mindanao can move on and prosper.
        sad…we had high hopes of misuari but he failed…MISERABLY. and now that the maguindanaoans are trying to pick up the pieces… nur is grumbling. we don’t want a mindanao held hostage by one’s incompetence and temper. MINDANAO MUST MOVE ON TO PROGRESS.

        azzam,

         i think your challenge is not realistic. how can misuari be effective to raise another war for independence in mindanao? he couldn’t even win local elections in his own home island? probably, he is not an effective leader and those who are behind him are also sold outs. you will never expect sober youths to support his campaign for another war. better for him to rally behind the recent peace deal in bangsamoro. he will be remembered as an adviser rather than spoiled old man after his demise.

        support for bangsamoro!!!

  • joshmale2004

    I smell divide and conquer in the works. In the end, it would be MNLF fighting a war against MILF. This will lessen the head ache for the AFP. Anyway, no one to blame but Nur as after the peace agreement by MNLF and the Phil Government, he failed to police his rank and allowed his commanders to create their own factions uncontrolled. Now it will be his head ache to assert MNLF supremacy over the MILF and other rag tag armies.

    • http://www.facebook.com/azzam.sulu Azzam Sulu

      I think the PhilGov. is playing with Fire! if they abolish the 1996 Final Agreement with the MNLF then the Bangsamoro fighters might unite and rally behind Misuari! go and ask x President Ramos and the AFP, the true power of the Bangsamoro fighter is in the MNLF not the MILF, but Pnoy is ignorant in the field of Mindanao! we should be thankful to Misuari’s effort in achieving peace in Mindanao, even the UN and the OIC has recognized and thanked Misuari for his Efforts to achieve Peace!  

      • zdrx

        sorry, but i think your leader is a failure. MNLF is good but perhaps the leader is a different story.
        if not for opportunities lost and gone to waste…the government should have not gone to seek other competent people. let’s hope the MILF can deliver.

  • Pablo316

    It seems a free-for-all is in the offing among these muslim groups. Let them do it, then the government can clean up the mess again, albeit with a dwindling number of trigger-happy participants.

  • Arcsolo

    Dear Mr. Misuari, first: the framework is not self-executory. meaning it is still under consultations from various stakeholders (plebiscite is included), then a review by congress, and if it is subject to Constitutional amendement, it will go through a lengthy process. only when the president signs the act of congress will this be executory. the power of congress to pass acts and laws are inherent in the constitution; especially, if the lawmakers deem it fit to replace an existing, yet, failed law or act, on a society.

    secondly, a vast majority of Filipinos agree that ARMM is a failure. when a system doesn’t serve to benefit the greater majority of society, why make it last a little longer? your statements also conjure to your self-serving interests. don’t you have any sympathies for your fellow Muslims? rebellion still flourished even though a peace agreement was forged during the height of the MNLF. didn’t your comrades envisioned a greater desire for a genuine autonomy without the tentacles that cling to political padrinos? and you call this framework as a means to disregard you and your group on what has been a failure? that is truly self-serving. the framework covers all Muslims within the ARMM.

    and lastly, with this framework, it has upgraded to a better version of autonomy compared to ARMM: self-governance, taxation, shariah law, parliamentary system, wealth sharing, etc. and you threaten the president of the republic a day in court?

    if you have any objections, why not raise them on the proper forum; or to the GRP Peace Panel, whose actions led to your annoyance? instead of running around making threats to the media, why not voice your concern on the proper channels? i know the president’s busy; why not through his party-mates? or does your ego too bloated to even talk to any henchmen?

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/VUFRGRCCA5JXOLKEVCJQ3FBW3Y Concerned Citizen

      The MNLF are mostly Tausugs  and the MILF are mostly Maguindanao Muslims.  Although both have the same religion, they have different dialects, cultures and traditions.  I think these people also do not really see each other eye to eye.  The government probably knows this and thus the only party that can initiate MNLF’s involvement in creating a feasible peace plan. 

      The Tausug and Maguindanao Muslims know they can only efficiently govern their own people and territories and I think neither one is willing to govern another.   Because of this, a parliamentary government will be unacceptable to the people whose population is less than the other.   This is probably Chairman Nur Misuari’s concern and I think it is a valid one because peace in Mindanao can only be feasible if we accept the  reality that conflict will arise once one of the muslim groups rules over the other.  Only when we accept this fact and when we open our mind to the idea of having two regions will sustainable peace become a reality in Mindanao.   In this set-up, the negotiation will be trimmed down to the determination of geographical territories and the equitable allocation of funds acceptable to both MNLF and MILF.   The Philippines will be having something like two economic zones that are managed separately and each making their own zones attractive to investments. The situation is very complex but the respect of each other, the people’s want for peace, and the dream to benefit from economic progress that will be the result of peace, will make peace a possibility in Mindanao.

      • Arcsolo

        very well said. but as you might have noted Mr.Misuari’s remarks, he could learn a thing or two from you.

        if this concern (regarding majority rule – or of peoples, in respect) be opened and channeled to the GRP panel; then, there won’t be any need for threats voiced over media. if only he could state his grounds for objection, as plainly as you have stated, why wouldn’t the government listen to him. he even narrated that Noynoy was with his mum when Chairman Misuari talked to former President Cory.

        Mr. Misuari can still campaign for his ideals in a sober manner, instead of pricking the volatile situation in the south. i would still support any peace-initiative that may rest the turmoils that beset our Muslim brothers.

      • Arcsolo

        @yahoo-HFDGBGI6RTVYTYN3X6OP2DVX4A:disqus  the GRP panel made all the necessary consultations with various stakeholders in the Mindanao region; specifically, with the people’s of ARMM, and that include members of the MNLF.

        the problem is deep-rooted power control as Concerned Citizen explained above.

        isolation? i don’t think so. take for instance that some members of the MNLF are holding key positions in the present government. before talks with the MILF resumed, they were also consulted.

        again, as Concerned Citizen explained. these are deep-rooted problems regarding control over a specific region. reactions are normal, like comments being posted here @inquirer to test theoritical ideas if it will serve the greater good of our society. hopefully it doesn’t augur another reason for an armed conflict just because of a simple misconception or misguided idea. i still support peace.

        Most Muslims in the Philippine government are the Maranaos.  There are also Maranaos in the MILF.     I don’t think the Maranaos have a separate agenda as long as they have proper representation in the proposed Bangsamoro government and maintain their representation in various agencies and departments of the Philippine government.  But it is best of course to consult the Maranaos on this.   Just like us, I think peace in Mindanao is also their dream.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/VUFRGRCCA5JXOLKEVCJQ3FBW3Y Concerned Citizen

         The Muslims in the Philippines consider themselves Filipinos.  Our conflict with China I think even triggered the peace talks.  Just like in the past, Filipinos tend to unite to fight a foreign invader.  But sadly, we also tend not to unite when we are left among ourselves.  But times are changing and internet is slowly putting this old barrier between the different people in the Philippines down.

        with all due respect to former President Ramos, and former Chairman Nur Misuari, they all had the best intention at hand during their time. it was the only option available since the GRP was talking with the MNLF. it doesn’t mean both Mr. Ramos and Mr. Misuari are failed instruments during that time, but the implementation and execution of the peace agreement did not meet with their own expectations. take for example the expiration of Mr. Ramos’ term limit as president expired along with the concept of peace in Mindanao. MILF were rigid during that time because they see an imperialistic Northern rule that continue to disregard the Southern people.

        i’m just quite amused why on heaven’s name would they be angry on something that will spell the same experiment that they undertook decades ago, on a present agreement that is not even implemented; but, is still in a phase of consultation?

        well, everyone’s entitled to their own opinion. and i’ll let them express their own unique comments on the present admin’s quest for Mindanao Peace. Peace to everyone.

    pareho utak pulbura at pera lang ang habol sa ngalan ng mga madlang Muslim.

    nagpayaman lang yan si Misuari pagkatapos mag peace agreement kay Pres. Ramos noong 1996. ngayong laos na sya at walang pera, umeeksena na naman ang dating “rebel leader”.

    one thing for sure the Philippine Gov. is one of the most corrupt Gov. in the World, that’s why they don’t even know how to respect and comply with Agreements, sad to say Nur Misuari and the MNLF trusted these corrupt Gov. in purse for Peace! but now it’s almost 20 years from the signing of the 1996 Peace agreement with the MNLF until now the PhilGov. did not deliver nor implemented what has agreed upon, and now again they are promising and signing another Agreement! the Phil.Gov. failed to address and solve the problems of the Filipino people! certainly it will fail to give the rights of the Bagsamoro people!

    One gives in, another 1 breaks away, and yet another one becomes discontent. This is becoming a cycle. Anhirap kausap ng mga taong ito.

    I can’t wait for ICJ to tell these groups to sit down and settle their own differences without the use of force, guns and ammunitions. 

    For the meantime, the Philippine government (no matter how hard it tried) and the struggling people of Mindanao financially are in the middle of all these and seriously affected. 

    Hopefully, this can be resolved quickly.

    The framework agreement has not been signed yet! What is this government trying to do? The RPH talked to the MILF, then talked to the MNLF which gave birth to ARMM. Now there is another negotiation with the MILF! Which is which? There will never be peace in Mindanao as long as the Muslims continue to have separate groups like the MILFand the MNLF.

    The only solution to the Mindanao problem is to make the people of Mindanao pledge allegiance to the Philippines and the Constitution. They either accept it or don’t. Those who don’t may choose to leave the Philippines or fight the government. The government then declares an all out war against them!

      Tama ka dyan, pro ang problema naman if both MILF and MNLF took their allegiance as you said, maaaring may lumabas na naman dyan na panibagong Muslim separatist gaya ng kay Umbra Kato or maybe a new one, there will be no peace in Mindanao, sila-sila rin ang naglalaban…

    very simple issue,MNLF leaders want equal sharing of power and wealth with in the new Bangsamoro entity.Our peace negotiating panel should look into this matter.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_AYITA5V33GYZSLC3G37UCVNTKA Ben

    We can never make everybody happy. On the other hand, I beleive the goverment erred on this. They should have included the MNLF in the negotiation table so all parties involved in the coflicted Mindanao from past to the present could have given their input to the peace process so in the end, the peace decision will be based on the collective effort of all. Now, the government must again make an effort to make sure MNLF will accept the agreed upon peace agreement.

  • Stuubs

    Nur Misuari group the MNLF are composed mostly of the TAUSOGS one of the main muslim tribe while the MILF are MAGUINDANAW tribe. They don’t get along well because of  tribal pride and some kind of a badblood between the two. If this result into an armed conflict between the two tribes it’s going to be very ugly. The govt should sort this out quickly before it gets out of hand ,otherwise the bystanders both muslim and non-muslims civilians are the likely victims and we’re going back to were we started. 

  • wakats

    I thought Nur is already resting 6 feet underground.  However, it’s understandable that he’ll make noise again because his group, MNLF, based in Sulu and Basilan and homes of the ABUs, has not been included nor mentioned in the new peace deal. 

    The Maguindanaws (MILF) and Nur’s Tausogs are separated by the Sulu Sea and skirmish among them is unlikely.  

    The internationally hailed/praised Peace Accord with the MILF is now facing problems, unless it is CONFINED ONLY to the Cotabato-Lanao areas where the Liguasan Marsh, a 220,000 has. of marshy areas along the provinces of North Cotabato and Maguindanao and believed to hold rich deposits of oil and natural gas worth US$580Bn, an American estimate according to Nur Misuari. In addition, the Marsh supports a great variety of aquatic wildlife.

    Nur Misuari huwag na natin itong gugulohin. Let’s give peace a chance. Peace in Mindanao is more supreme than your interest for power and name.

      Misuari cannot be by-passed in the formulation of a peace plan.   I think most of the  casualties on the side of the Philippine military in recent years were the result of the belief that MILF had control of the “MILF Command” or MILF Lost Command in the Tausug-dominated provinces.  Our soldiers were often caught off-guard because of this.

  • Platypus09

    I believe that Tausog and Maguindanao tribes are related to each other somehow going back centuries ago and they should talk among themselves as to how they can live together as one group happily ever after, as Filipino-Muslims, for the sake of their children, children’s children, their communities and this country.

    i think if this Misuari keeps on talking like this that the government should warn him on rebellion.. the people is patient enough of this peace in Mindanao and been given enough attention already to make Mindanao a peaceful place.. Misuari should work hand-in-hand with the current pact.. is he really for peace? or just playing king in Mindanao?
