Jesus Dureza, Presidential Peace Adviser, personally handed over to Misuari the order of the court that lifted the warrant of arrest of the MNLF chair. The two met in Jolo, Sulu on Thursday, November 3.
The judge who lifted the warrant of arrest was Judge Maria Rowena Modesto San Pedro of Pasig Regional Trial Court Branch 158.
Reports have it that both Dureza and Misuari boarded a private jet after the meeting and were headed back to Manila.
It can be recalled that government forces were ordered by President Duterte earlier not to implement the said warrant.
Misuari gives much credit to the lifting of the warrant of arrest to President Duterte. He thanks the President for such and said that it proves that he had no participation in the said event.
