Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano, who voted against the draft, said the panel approved the BBL when the MILF has yet to show a single sign of sincerity in the aftermath of the Mamasapano incident.
He said the panel as well as the House had taken a position that the MILF should meet certain conditions, including the return of all weapons of the slain police commandos before the BBL is voted upon.
“We’re sending a signal to the MILF – the chief beneficiary – that no matter what they do, the government will approve the BBL,” Alejano said. Source: The Philippine Star
