Enhancing law enforcement operations is vital in maintaining peace and security in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (Barmm), particularly within government-acknowledged Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) camps.
This was highlighted by the Philippine National Police Brigadier Gen Madid M. Paitao during an information, education, and communication campaign in Cagayan de Oro City.
“Let me reiterate that the coordination in the conduct of law enforcement operations in the MILF camps or communities is important even if we are no longer at war with them,” he said.
WIth the passage of the Bangsamoro Organic Law on Jan. 26, the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao was abolished and replaced by the Barmm.
The IEC campaign is part of a series of activities conducted by OPAPP for members of the region’s security sector to further enhance their understanding and appreciation in the Bangsamoro peace process. (with reports from opapp)
