From foes to friends: Pol Bataoil recounts history with MNLF’s Mus Sema

Nov 7, 2016 @ 19:00

Who knew that their clashing views would become a thing of the past?

The Duterte magic surely rubbed off on Pangasinan Rep. Leopoldo Bataoil and rebel group leader Muslimin Sema, as the two saw a complete turnaround as far as their ties are concerned. Bataoil, a retired police chief, used to battle it out with Sema’s faction of the Moro National Liberation Front.

Fast forward to November 2016, the two now stand together in a group photo in Malacañang as allies for the revived peace talks under President Rodrigo Duterte. Look at how time flies!
