13 former rebels receive remuneration for surrendered firearms

Former rebels on Tuesday (March 24) received remuneration for surrendering and turning over their firearms to the government.

Under the government’s Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP), the 13 former rebels received P688,000 worth of firearm remuneration during a ceremony at Camp Capinpin in Tanay, Rizal.

According to 202nd Brigade Commander Col. Alex Rillera, they are coordinating with local government units (LGUs) and government agencies to ensure that former rebels receive grants even amid the enhanced community quarantine.

“The government’s ability to deliver on its promises, despite the ongoing national and global crisis, is a manifestation of the government’s sincerity to forge peace and usher progress and development,” he said.

Under the government’s E-CLIP, former rebels can receive up to P700,000 worth of benefits, including livelihood assistance, as well as, health and education services. — AAC
