Sal: Govt failure to arrest rebels = rebellion continues


Presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo said Mindanao should remain under martial law especially since no rebel was arrested during its second extension. MalacaƱang on Sunday described as "intellectually challenged" a claim by Rep. Edcel Lagman (Albay) claim that there is no more rebellion in Mindanao because nobody has been indicted for rebellion.

Presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo disagreed, saying Mindanao should remain under martial law especially since no rebel was arrested. "If no arrest has been made on the rebels then with more reason martial law in Mindanao should continue because the rebellion continues. That should be common sense," presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo said in a statement.
