The death of Ghazali Jaafar, Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) vice chairman for political affairs, is a big loss to the leadership of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) and the MILF, said Bangsamoro Transition Authority (BTA) Chief Minister Al Haj Murad Ebrahim.

Jaafar, who also headed the Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC), passed away at around 1:00 a.m. Wednesday in Davao City.

“As one of the main pillars of the leadership of the struggle, it is a big loss to the leadership of the BARMM and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front as we were together during the early years of the struggle – we started in the 60s,” Murad said in a statement.

Jaafar was supposed to be the incoming speaker of the BARMM parliament.

Murad noted that when Jaafar led the BTC, the body mandated to craft a law creating the BARMM, he made sure that the aspirations of the Bangsamoro people are heard.

“A someone who dedicated most of his life for the Bangsamoro struggle, we have lost a shaheed today. The struggle you share with the whole Bangsamoro people will continue,” he added.
