Solon confident MCB can carry out mandate fairly

MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur (PIA) -- A lawmaker from Lanao del Sur firmly believed that the reparation process for Marawi siege victims and survivors can be implemented justly.

"I am confident that the Marawi Compensation Board, comprised of dedicated individuals with expertise in various relevant fields, will work tirelessly to ensure that the compensation process is carried out efficiently, fairly, and with the utmost sensitivity to the needs and rights of the affected individuals," said 1st District Representative Ziaur-Rahman Alonto Adiong.

He said MCB will carefully consider each claim with transparency, accountability, and impartiality throughout the process.

Adiong witnessed the signing ceremony of the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act No. 11696 or the Marawi Siege Victims Compensation Act of 2022. 

The signing was held Tuesday, May 23, coinciding with the sixth anniversary of the Marawi siege.

In his message, the lawmaker underscored the establishment of the MCB as a testament that the government has not forgotten Marawi and its plight.

He said the government took necessary action enacting RA 11696 and established the MCB which serves as a crucial step towards healing and rebuilding the lives of those affected by the conflict.

Adiong further said that the Board is not just a means to provide financial assistance but also a platform to listen to the voices of the affected communities.

On the part of Congress, the lawmaker highlighted that the House Oversight Committee on the Marawi Compensation Act of which he is the chairperson, will ensure that the provisions of the law are effectively executed, providing rightful compensation and assistance to the affected individuals and communities.
