Former rebels in Palawan who surrendered their firearms to the government received another financial aid from the Capitol.

“Muling pinagkalooban ng ayuda ng Provincial E-CLIP Committee ang mga nagbalik-loob na rebelde sa pamahalaan at isinurender ang kanilang mga armas,” the Capitol said.

“Ito ay sa pamamagitan ng Firearms Remuneration Assistance kung saan apat na former rebels na boluntaryong sumuko nitong nakalipas na huling quarter ng taong 2019 ang naging benepisyaro,” it added.

The Firearms Remuneration is one of the benefits granted under the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program of the National Government.

The distribution of the financial aid was held last June 10 at the headquarters of the b3rd Marine Brigade in Bgy. Tiniguiban, Puerto Princesa City.

Present during the event were Brig. Gen Nestor Herico, Commander of the 3rd Marine Brigade, DILG OIC Provincial Director Virgilio L. Tagle and LtCol Owen Banaag of the Palawan Provincial Police Office.

Also in attendance through video conferencing were PSWDO Abigail Ablaña, DSWD Provincial Officer Eric Aborot and Engr. Maximo Cabasal of the NHA.
