PNP Monitoring JI Suspects in RP

Philippine National Police (PNP) Intelligence Group deputy chief Senior Superintendent Romeo Ricardo said yesterday his unit is verifying reports that foreigners belonging to the Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) have tied up with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and are hatching plans to sow terror anew in the Philippines. “There are reports, although we are still gathering enough evidence to prove (them),” Ricardo, who also leads the PNP anti-terrorist Task Force Sanglahi, said. He said Metro Manila residents should not be alarmed by the reports because security measures have been implemented to ensure peace and order. The US State Department warned the Philippines and other countries in Southeast Asia yesterday of the imminent threat posed by Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda terror network in the wake of the attacks in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and Koronadal. “There are continuing operations against the Abu Sayyaf and the MILF and other foreign terrorist organizations, including the JI and MILF,” he said.
