Duterte has martial law in southern Philippines extended

Let ML continue

This explained why the government security forces failed to drive out the terrorists from Marawi in the 60 days of martial law earlier imposed by Duterte, according to the officials.

"The local officials have not been arrested there".

During today's Congress session, about a dozen protesters in the gallery interrupted the hearing, chanting "never again, never again to martial law", before being escorted out.

The president said the terrorists continue to possess reinforcements, weapons, ammunition, and other supplies from outside Marawi.

"What the subalterns of the president has shown to us is some sort of a basis, but the Constitution calls for sufficiency of factual basis", he said.

A third safeguard is by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea, "who, speaking for the President, vowed strict government supervision on the implementation of martial law to ensure that the rights and liberties of the people remain secure".

The president's spokesperson Ernesto Abella said that the "extension of martial law is essential to overall peace and stability".

"We need martial law because we haven't addressed yet the existence of other Daesh-inspired groups", he said.

"Upon a thorough personal assessment of the current situation in Marawi City and other parts of Mindanao, I have come to the conclusion that the existing rebellion in Mindanao, which prompted me to issue Proclamation No. 216 on May 23, 2017, will not be quelled completely by July 22, 2017, the last day of the 60-day period provided under section 18, article 7 of the 1987 constitution", Duterte said in the letter to the Senate president and speaker of the House of Representatives. "We feel that we're not alone fighting them with the clothes and water that you sent over".

OJ Simpson parole hearing
Even the prosecutor who sent Simpson to prison is expected to support his parole. "I've known OJ for a long time", said Mr Fromong.

Palabay said Duterte's martial law can never be different from the version of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos.

"I fear that the plan to extend the martial law in Mindanao will pave the way for a Philippines-wide martial law", Senator Risa Hontiveros was quoted by AFP as saying.

Parliamentarians of the opposition, in particular question on the necessity of martial law on the entire region of Mindanao, populated by two million inhabitants, while the fighting relate only to the city of Marawi.

Fagyan, 29, who also participated in the September 2013 Zamboanga siege, said the battles being conducted to regain full control of Marawi City was much harder than anything he had previously experienced because the Mautes seemed to have complete knowledge of the cityscape, were proficient in using improvised explosive devices (IED), and seemed to have unlimited supplies.

"There is much work to be done in the recovery, reconstruction and rehabilitation of Marawi".

Lorenzana said there is a continued presence of terrorists allied with IS militants, especially in the provinces of Basilan, Sulu, Maguindanao and the Central Mindanao region.

Army chief-of-staff General Eduardo Ano said it was necessary to restrict the movement of the Islamist militants, warning that the ongoing rebellion could spread to other cities on the island, the GMA News website reports. "If we have to wait there for one year, let us wait for one year".

The 29-year-old lieutenant who also fought during the bloody Zamboanga siege in 2013 and the Maute group's siege of Butig town in Lanao del Sur in 2016, said the terrorists in Marawi were the hardest to defeat.

An estimated 70 militants remain holed up in the downtown area.
