STATEMENT OF SPEAKER LORD ALLAN VELASCO ON PRRD SIGNING THE MARAWI COMPENSATION ACT INTO LAW
28 April 2022 08:50:33 AM


We applaud President Rodrigo Roa Duterte for signing the Marawi Siege Victims Compensation Act into law, which is a priority legislation of the 18th Congress designed to help Marawi residents rebuild their lives and pave the way for the city’s full recovery.

Through this new law, we hope to see the return to glory of this once beautiful city and its people back on their feet. We also hope to ease the burden of those who lost their properties and loved ones during the war by providing them just compensation.

We see this legislation as one of the important legacies of the Duterte presidency and the 18th Congress. Thus, we call upon our next set of leaders to the proper enforcement of this law so that we can achieve our goal of seeing Marawi rise again sooner rather than later. #
