Senator Risa Hontiveros on Maute as a Terrorist Group

Yesterday, I was again the target of a vicious fake news campaign wherein I was depicted to be very supportive of the Maute group.

Nothing is farther from the truth.

The Maute group is a terrorist group. It is an enemy of peace and development, particularly the people of Mindanao. What they did to Marawi is a terrorist act that must be condemned by all. I have full trust in our AFP that they will defeat these terrorists. We will hold the Maute terrorists accountable. We will do it without losing our sense of humanity and love for democracy.
