FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT MILF AND PHILIPPINE GOVERMENT NEED TRUST TO SUCCEED

Press Release SHURA and MAPIM

9 th OCtober 2012

The Secretariate for Ulama Assembly of Asia (SHURA) and the Malaysian Consultation Council of Islamic Societies (MAPIM) welcome the peace accord agreement signed at the framework level  between MILF ( Moro Islamic Liberation Front) and the Philippines government on the 7 th October 2012  .

The Moro struggle for self determination since 1565 and prolonged till 300 years of confrontation begun since the Spain and American occupation.

At the very least the agreement has arrived at a truce for both parties to halt military confrontation , eventhough details of the peace accord is yet to be finalized.

The Manila High Court decision that nullified the MOA-AD (Memorandum of Agreement on Ancestral Domain ) in 2008 is a reminder of the importance of how an accord will not be a guarantee for a smooth process since there are sections of the populace who are not in favor of a peace treaty seen to give more advantage to the Muslim Bangsamoro.

This is reflected by the already dissenting voice from MNLF ( Moro National Liberation Front)  who has pointed with a strong objection that since the peace agreement already penned in 1996 , the Tripoli accord and also the Jeddah Agreement has not been abrogated  , the recent and new agreement cannot claim as overriding the previous treaties.

This is also the dispute by MNLF  that since several agreements was reached during  Marcos (1976)  , Aquino (1986) dan Ramos (1996)  leading to the enactment of the Public Act 1954 ,  and the declaration of the establishment of the ARMM ( Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao) , why is this new agreement concluded.

The MNLF has declared that the new agreement should be questioned on the basis that they are not referred to in the process.

The MNLF peace accord had not resulted in the advancement of the Mindanao status since Nur Misuari was abrutly dismissed in a short lived governership of Mindanao .

At this juncture we believe that MILF will have to be cautious and calculative in its detail demand and in its pursuit to take full advantage of the agreement presumably at the end of this year.

We are however incline to perceive this agreement would be an opportunity for the Muslim Bangsamoro to advance their socio-economic standing in an environment of a free from violence and preconceived prejudices .

This accord is still an initial stage of moving forward and the details have yet to be finalized . MILF will need to focus with vigor to charting of both short and long term aims in the hope that this would be a lasting treaty.

We call on both parties to give their full commitment to ensure the treaty  be a well , clear and full adherence to the human rights law vis a vis the  advancement for peace at justice for the long standing conflict.

We urge that the Manila administration should review its policy on Mindanao . A policy of civil engagement and constructive dialogue should be the roadmap to a lasting peace and stability not only for the Philippines but also for the rest of the region.
