Court allows Nur to file certificate of candidacy in Sulu

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/17 March) — The regional trial court in Makati has
approved the request of detained Moro leader Nur Misuari to travel to Sulu to
file his certificate of candidacy on March 20.

Misuari has been detained for alleged rebellion since January 7, 2002 first at
Santa Rosa, Laguna, then at the St. Luke�s hospital early last year and from
there in a two-story house in New Manila, Quezon City.

The court in a decision dated March 15 but handed over on March 16, granted
Misuari�s motion for leave to file his certificate of candidacy at the office
of the provincial Commission on Elections supervisor in Jolo, Sulu on March 20.

The former governor of the five-province, one-city Autonomous Region in Muslim
Mindanao (ARMM) is running for Sulu governor.

Misuari was given only one day for the travel and his co-accused, Ustadz
Abuharis Usman, has been allowed to accompany him.
The court also allowed Misuari to fly to Jolo, Sulu on December 14, 2006, to
register as voter. (Carolyn O. Arguillas/MindaNews )
