DELAYS IN PEACE AGREEMENT MORE EXPENSIVE — SEC. CABRAL

m21delays (DAVAO CITY) — Social Welfare secretary Esperanza Cabral said delays in the peace agreement will be more expensive for the government, citing the DSWD’s greater expense in doing social work especially in conflict areas.She said upsurges in violence unmake inroads in social work, causing them to do things again without really making appropriate impact to intended beneficiaries, especially to evacuees.

Cabral told MindaNews in an interview Thursday at the Marco Polo they are also closely looking at the development at the on-going concerns over changes in the composition of the government panel negotiating peace with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

She admitted, though, that she isn’t privy to the dynamics in the selection process but is also concerned over its impact to the peace process and their social work.

She said she is sure the government will take its prerogative well on the matter. Full report to follow.
