The Negros Oriental Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) through the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) has allocated P260,000 worth of financial assistance to four rebels who have surrendered in the municipalities of Mabinay and Zamboanguita.

DILG Provincial Director Dennis Quiñones said the rebel returnees were awarded the financial grants through the department’s Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP).

Quiñones said the former rebel beneficiaries were given immediate livelihood assistance worth P65,000 each to provide them with the necessary aid in their reintegration to the mainstream society where they belong.

Part of the financial aid distributed includes immediate assistance, livelihood assistance, and firearm remunerations.

The DILG official wish to attract more insurgents to surrender to the folds of the law this year.

Expected to have bigger budget allocation, Quiñones said they also “anticipate large influx of rebels to surrender that include the Kapatas and Militia ng Bayan to the expanded CLIP program.”

E-CLIP is the government’s program that responds to the circumstances, needs, and concerns of former rebels through the provision of assistance and seeks to consider their basic rights and situations as men and women
