Rebels who are surrendering to the government will be welcomed by a newly-constructed halfway house in Taleb village, Bantay, Ilocos Sur.

Funded by the Department of Interior and Local Government, the halfway house will serve as a venue for the adjustment and the transition of these rebels to a “new life.” They can stay temporarily while they process their documents as beneficiaries of the government’s Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP), a special program of the national government to entice members and supporters of the rebel group (Militia ng Bayan) to return to the fold of the law.

Local officials said that the structure houses comfortable beds, separate bathrooms and comfort rooms for males and females, a dining and kitchen area, as well as a living room for entertainment and activity center. It can accommodate at least 16 individuals.
