Once established, the autonomous government, to be called Bangsamoro, "would be at the forefront of keeping public order and safety, dispensing justice within the bounds of law and addressing the basic requisites of a good life", Jaafar said.

Duterte received the new draft of the BBL, which when approved by Congress will be the enabling law of the negotiated political agreement signed by the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. "Within the context of the Republic of the Philippines there shall be a Bangsamoro country".

"Insha'Allah! We will achieve sustainable and inclusive peace and development in the Bangsamoro, Mindanao, [and] the entire country", Duterte said. "After decades of armed struggle and violence, we will soon come up with a constitutionally consistent legal instrument that will lay the foundation for establishing real and lasting peace in Mindanao", Duterte said.

"These misguided people have filled the vacuum created by our failure to enact the basic law and fed into the frustration of our people", Murad said at the ceremony, which was attended by leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives.

That could include introducing a "diverted profits tax" so IRD could impose tax at a penalty rate if it believed that tax had been deliberately avoided.

The revised BBL was handed to the President by Moro Islamic Liberation Front chairman Ghadzali Jaafar on Monday which is a week before the chief executive's second State of the Nation Address, following the opening of the regular session of Congress.

Duterte said the draft BBL, jointly written by Muslims, Christians, and Lumads "shall give rise to a genuine autonomous region as well as bring forth healing and reconciliation to the historical injustices committed against the Bangsamoro people".

Iqbal said he feared the Marawi siege could complicate the passage of the law if there was a perception that the MILF and the radical Maute group fighting in Marawi were associated with each other because both hail from the same region.

"We have the opportunity to show that the diversity of our country is our source of wealth", Santiago added.

The six-week recovery process means Slater also will not be able to compete in an upcoming worldwide contest in Tahiti. Brazil's Filipe Toledo scored a flawless 10-point ride for a lengthy tube ride against USA surfer, Kanoa Igarashi .

Mohager Iqbal, a member of the BTC, said only 20 to 30 percent of the original provisions in the BBL were changed in the draft submitted to the President. The MILF signed a peace agreement with the government in 2014, but the Aquino administration failed to complete the process. Misuari's faction did not participate.

The MNLF-Misuari peace implementing panel has yet to formally meet although they have conducted at least five informal meetings.

Hataman noted that the proposed law "comes at a time when we are reminded of the costs of delaying our efforts towards peace in the region, as we continue to hurdle old and familiar obstacles along with new challenges". "Delays in our shared pursuit of justice make it easier for terror to thrive", he said.

He expressed hope that the President, who will set the legislative agenda of the national government during his SONA on July 24, "will use this important platform to push for legislation that acknowledges and addresses the historical injustices committed against the Bangsamoro people, and to pursue restorative justice and lasting peace in the region".
