Duterte wants immunity for Nur Misuari

Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte calls to give Nur Misuari an immunity from charges resulting from Zamboanga siege last year. He added that the Aquino administration should talk to Misuari to prevent another siege.

“We might succeed in convincing everyone to agree on the Bangsamoro, including the courts, but the problem is, what about Misuari,” Duterte said in his weekly TV program few weeks ago.

“I’ve been telling the peace panel ever since, do not forget Misuari. If I were to be there to talk about peace, I would like to include everyone because Misuari, for all of his faults, is still a man to reckon with,” the mayor added.

“I mean, there are enemies that you cannot kill.” Duterte believes that their is no other influential Muslim leader than Misuari.

Nur Misuari remains at large.
