MANILA, March 15 — Is the Philippine government peace panel negotiating with Malaysian citizens masquerading as representatives of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front? This is the gist of the concern brought forward by a Davao city congressman.

Congressman Karlo Alexei Nograles on Saturday called on the Ad Hoc Committee on the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) to look into the allegations of former Secretary Rafael Alunan that Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) Chairman Al-Haj Murad Ebrahim and MILF peace panel chairman Mohagher Iqbal are Malaysian citizens before continuing with its deliberations on the proposed BBL.

Is MILF Chairman Murad, a Malaysian citizen, travelling with a Malaysian passport? A nagging question coming from a Davao City congressman who wants an honest answer and truth be told. If true, are the GOP panel playing Moro-Moro, then?

If true, Nograles said that Congress can be held criminally liable for committing acts of treason for selling out the country’s sovereignty to foreign nationals.

“According to former Secretary Rafael Alunan III both Chairman Murad and Chairman Iqbal travel with Malaysian passports, and are in fact Malaysians. This is a very serious allegation and must be investigated immediately, even before we continue deliberations on the BBL. I raise this concern because if it is true that we are writing the BBL Law for Malaysians then we in Congress will be criminally liable for acts of treason,” Nograles who is a member of the ad hoc panel.

According to the Mindanao solon, it’s a good thing House Speaker Feliciano “Sonny” Belmonte has decided to extend the life of the Ad Hoc Committee on the BBL for another two months as this would allow them to get a better view on how the proposed law would affect the country’s national interest.

The congressman called the attention of Ad Hoc Committee chairman Rep. Rufus Rodriguez to immediately call the officials of the Bureau of Immigration and subpoena all travel documents of Al Haj Murad Ebrahim and Mohaguer Iqbal to shed light on this matter and confirm whether or not these allegations are true.
