DOJ Annual Report 2005


Support for Anti - Terrorism Cases

Support for PGMA's action program against anti-terrorism efforts continue to take up a large part of Program's MOOE. Although the .number and intensity of actual combat operations against the Abu Sayaff Group, Jemaah Islamia and MILF may have declined, the extremist groups appear to have taken a different tack by leaving their mountain lairs in Mindanao and shifting operations to the country's urban canters. Thus, the spate of terror bombing attacks in Davao, Gen. Santos and Koronadal in December 2004 and Valentine's day bombings in Makati, Davao and Gen. Santos City have required extensive Program intervention in identifying and securing malerial witnesses.
