Aquino III on Thursday expressed his frustration over the nonpassage of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL), which he said was deliberately derailed by opposition senators. In his speech during the 30th anniversary celebration of the EDSA People Power Revolution, the President recalled the excesses committed by former president Ferdinand Marcos to Muslim Filipinos during Martial Law. He said Marcos and his minions seized lands and tolerated those who committed abuses. “Imbes na katarungan ang gawing tugon, o gumawa ng batas para isaayos ang sitwasyon, Philippine Constabulary at Sandatahang Lakas ang itinulak na solusyon,” he said. With regards to the Mindanao peace process, the Chief Executive said the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front have come up with the Framework Agreement and the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro, and have worked hard to pass the BBlL. The President said it is regrettable that the BBL, which is expected to bring lasting peace to the region, has not been passed by Congress. “Nanghihinayang ako, dahil ang tanging batas na maghahatid ng katarungan at kapayapaan, sadya pa po talagang hinarang,” he said. “At di po ba: Ang BBL, naipit sa Senado sa kumite para sa lokal na gobyerno, na pinamumunuan ni Senador (Bongbong) Marcos? Di ba nung pinakahuling araw ng sesyon, tuloy pa rin ang pag-interpellate ni Senador (Juan Ponce) Enrile? At di po ba, itong dalawang apelyido ding ito ang siyang nagtulak ng military solution para sa mga Moro noong panahon ng diktadurya?” President Aquino sundan sa pahina 3 Photo shows the ceremonial turn-over of the trash boat by PENRO Raymundo D.
