JICA sets meeting with RRUC



April 19, 2017 - The Regional Reconciliation and Unification Commission (ARMM) and Japan International Coordination Agency (JICA) conducted meeting on Tuesday.
As an inquiry from the JICA, the meeting has been set to convene in order to discuss the alternative dispute resolution process/ mechanism used by the commission to address rido (family feud) and other internal conflicts in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.
The RRUC Executive Director Abdulbasit Benito discussed after being appointed to head the commission together with the Chairman Romeo Sema, they initiated the creation of ARMM Coordinating Mechanism for Rido Settlement which composed of the line agencies in ARMM, the local government units’ mechanism on conflicts, the security sector and the civil society organizations.
Benito emphasized the commission was created as an advisory body to the regional governor for rido/ family feud in the region and thereby helping the promotion and maintenance of peace and security.
He stressed that the effective way of settling rido is through shuttle mediation where both parties undergo separate dialogues. Which means there is no face to face interaction among feuding parties unless during the settlement and covenant signing where both parties are consensus.
To preclude the reoccurrence of settled rido, Benito also added that the commission only facilitates settlement when requested and where both parties have the interest for settlement.
Aside from settlement, Benito also discussed the programs and activities of the commission such as the series of values transformation training among Bangsamoro youth, peace advocacies and networking and so on.
The meeting was attended by Yuko Dohi, Vanessa Maynard, Misaki Kimura, Mamiko Nakada and Samrah Karon-Patadon from JICA.
