Misuari denies funding Kiram excursion into Sabah


Moro National Liberation Front chairman Nur Misuari

MANILA, Philippines—Moro National Liberation Front chairman Nur Misuari made a surprise visit to the house of Sulu Sultan Jamalul Kiram III in Maharlika Village in Taguig City Tuesday and dismissed as “wild speculations” allegations that he funded an expedition of Kiram followers in Sabah.

Misuari arrived while Kiram’s  daughter, Princess Jacel Kiram, was delivering a message from her father.

“This is to pay a visit to the Sultan Jamalul Kiram III. It is merely a coincidence that he arrived while we were having a press conference,” said Abraham Idjirani, the spokesperson and secretary general of the “Sultanate of Sulu and North Borneo.”

Misuari said he was on his way to the airport when he decided to drop by the house of the sultan.

“No one can dispute that (Sabah) is part of our territory, our sovereignty,” Misuari said.

He described as  “wild speculations” allegations that he funded the journey of  Rajah Muda Agbimuddin Kiram and their followers to Sabah.

“To finance them is out of the question,” Misuari said.

    >>>Misuari denies funding Kiram excursion into Sabah<<<

    THEN he sponsored it!  More often than not, Miswari says one thing and does the opposite. Typical political animal. Para makaganti dahil na-echa pwera siya sa peace negotiation sa MNLF.

    misuari action might make malaysia and philippines war.

    Kiram is impoverished.  and yet, this was a well-armed expedition.  how much does an armalite cost?  around 50,000 to 100,000 pesos, yes? and a secessionist armed personnel usually carries at least 500 rounds into battle.  tapos me mortar pa at around 300,000 to 500,000 pesos per tube, maybe more.  plus the allowances of the armed units, who needed at least 45 days to prepare.  definitely someone’s funding this.

    plus a media campaign via internet forums and hacking. tapos sabay pa sa CPP-NPA-NDF criticism of the GRP-MILF peace agreement. does anyone get the picture yet?

    Sa Malaysia o Singapore kapag ang govt may suspetsa sa isang tao, huhulihin nila ito at ikukulong indefinitely at walang trial habang may imbestigasyun sa ngalan ng national security.

    Sa PH kapag may suspect, iaanounce muna sa TV at radio para makapagtago o kaya makapagisip ng rason ang suspect para hindi pagdudahan.

      Sa Pilipinas arestado bago litis like Arroyo. Sa Pilipinas abusado sng Pangulo basta kalabsn ikinukulng. Masahol kay Marcos. Galit daw sa corrupt pero piniyansahan ni Presidente ang may kaso ng pagnanakaw na si.Padaca.Galit lang kay Arroyo dahil kagalit ni Cory si.GMA. Rally ng rally si Cory at Susan Roces pero di napatalsik si Arroyo, kaya todo galit ni PNOY ksy GMA.tapos ibinigay pa nya sa magsasaka ang hacienda kaya ganyan ang galit ni PNOY kay Arroyo.Pati sa Sabah isisisi kay Arroyo at kay Misuari.

  • opinyonlangpo

    Where is sanity in putting blame to Nur Misuari? Somebody is throwing blame here and there, next to blame might be you.

  • Dawn Dare

    Brunei might be playing the wild card here. Could very well be its turn to pay back in military assistance the same way Sulu helped it centuries before.

  • Hey_Dudes

    If in the end government will prove Misuari being the thorn in this new crisis, it can only blame itself.  Misuari was already in jail and should not have been freed just to please Middle East and the Muslims in the south.  AFP personnel who expressed their lack of support for then GMA were jailed while this criminal who led a revolt that killed 200+ soldiers and civilians in Zamboanga is being treated like a head of state.  Marcos would have him facing a firing squad for what he did.
