DOJ Annual Report 2007


Support for Anti - Terrorism Cases

The spate of terror bombing attacks in Regions 11 and 12 have required extensive program intervention in identifying and securing material witnesses and their relocation to safe locations. C onsidering the mobility of suspected terrorists and their involvement in numerous cases pending across the country , it has bee n essential to deploy and re - deploy material witnesses for them to testify in various courts in Metro Manila and Mindanao and relocate them elsewhere to ensure confidentiality and security. Emergency relocation of WCs and families to different harbo ring s ites in the country has increased cost of operation s . Through the cooperation and testimony of witnesses under the Program, the prosecution succeeded in securing convictions in cases against ASG members and MILF Commander Tahir Alonto and other accused.
