MANILA, Philippines—A spokesperson of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) on Friday said they want Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV to mediate in its ongoing armed dispute with the Philippine government.

“Kapag may panahon ang senador natin, siguro ay baka makatulong din (If our senator has time, maybe he can also help),” MNLF spokesperson, lawyer Emmanuel Fontanilla, said on Radyo Inquirer.

“If there is an emissary that we will welcome, it’s Senator Trillanes,” Fontanilla also said.

Fontanilla also said Ustadz Habier Malik is alive and well, contrary to reports that the ground commander of the MNLF group engaged in combat with government troops in Zamboanga City was among the casualties.

“Buhay na buhay si commander Ustadz Habier Malik,” Fontanilla said.
