Letter to the Editor: Random thoughts amidst all the din & drone

The advances & gains reached so far, as well as the on & off the table understandings & commitments in the peace negotiations, despite divergences in positions, difficulties & contradictions, & the crucial outstanding issues that may still be resolved anyway over time with mutual determination and principled negotiations, must be made known widely.

On the Notice of Termination of the JASIG Sent on 07 February 2017 by Sec. Jesus Dureza

There is no fair and just reason for the GRP to terminate the JASIG and in effect the GRP-NDFP peace negotiations less than two weeks after the two Negotiating Panels had successfully concluded their third round of talks in Rome, Italy. The 25 January 2017 Rome Joint Statement clearly shows the significant advances made in the substantive agenda of the peace negotiations.

The GRP-NDFP Peace Negotiations Must Continue To Fulfill The People’s Demand For A Just And Lasting Peace

The CPP, NPA and NDFP remain committed to the peace process in accordance with The Hague Joint Declaration and further agreements.

NPA-FSMR captures two 39th IB-PA soldiers in Sultan Kudarat

POW Calocop and POW Garay are currently under investigation for their involvement in the crimes perpetrated by the 39th IB against the

Legal Opinion: Can the NDFP political consultants temporarily released on bail be now rearrested because the GRP has sent today a written notice of termination of the JASIG which the NDFP has already received?

The peace negotiations have not been properly terminated. According to the Joint Agreement on Safety & Immunity Guarantees (JASIG), the safety and immunity guarantees, and the peace negotiations itself, can only be terminated by written notice given by one party to the other and which would take effect only after 30 days from its receipt. No written notice has been given by the GRP to the NDFP to date.
