MANILA - The Bureau of Immigration has placed Moro National Liberation Front founding chairman Nur Misuari and 3 others on its lookout bulletin after they were charged with rebellion over the siege of Zamboanga City.

Aside from Misuari, the other 3 are Ustadz Habier Malik, Bas Arki and Assamin Hussin.

The BI denied that Misuari has already left the country. All 4 suspects have pending warrants of arrest and are barred from leaving the Philippines.

The Department of Justice earlier filed charges of rebellion and violations of international humanitarian laws against Misuari, Malik, and 63 others in connection with the recent siege on Zamboanga City.

On Thursday, the Supreme Court granted the DOJ's request for the transfer of the MNLF men's trial from Zamboanga City to the Taguig City Regional Trial Court. Report by Zhander Cayabyab, Radio DZMM
