ILIGAN CITY – A joint law enforcement operation by the Army’s 82nd Infantry Battalion and the police resulted in the arrest of Marawi Vice Mayor Arafat Salic in Marawi  on Wednesday morning.

Salic is included in the Office of the Martial Law Administrator’s Arrest Order dated Sept. 4, 2017 for rebellion, said Col. Romeo Brawner, 103rd Infantry Brigade commander.

Salic underwent custodial debriefing and medical check-up before he was handed over to the National Police for proper disposition, according to an Army report.

Meanwhile, Brig. Gen. Roberto Ancan, commander of 1st Infantry Division, lauded the efforts of 103rd Brigade, 82nd Infantry Battalion and Marawi police for the successful implementation of martial law arrest order.

“The 1st Infantry Division supports the Commander-in-Chief’s declaration of martial law. We will perform our duties in accordance with the law, respecting the rights of every individual and their properties,” said Ancan.

“We take pride of the overwhelming support of the constituents and stakeholders in our area of responsibility as we perform our mandate to serve the people and secure the land,” Ancan said.
