DUTERTE APOLOGIZES FOR WHAT HAPPENED IN MARAWI CITY - NewspaperPH


President Rodrigo Duterte apologized to Maranaos for declaring martial law in Mindanao and for the destruction brought about by the clashes between the Maute forces and government troops. Duterte said the Maute militants, who have pledged allegiance to the extremist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also Islamic State or IS), left him no choice but to impose military rule. The declaration of martial law is the subject of petitions at the Supreme Court questioning the necessity and factual basis for it. Petitioners do not dispute that the government should deal with terrorism, only whether it was necessary or constitutional to declare martial law.
