COTABATO CITY, Philippines-A non-government organization identified with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) got a P21-million funding from the World Bank, a ranking MILF leader said on Saturday. Some local leaders accused. The release of the fund came in the wake of claims by unnamed sources, which some newspapers (except the Philippine Daily Inquirer) have reported on, that the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA) has been buying firearms on behalf of the Moro rebel group. The WB also dismissed reports that the BDA uses WB and other funds to buy firearms for the MILF. A similar denial was also issued by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (Jica), which also assist the BDA in the implementation of social impact projects in conflict-affected areas.
