SUBJECT: PUTTING LITO REBIO ON THE REWARDS FOR JUSTICE LIST

REF: A. 05 MANILA 2108
¶B. 05 MANILA 2105

Classified By: (U) Ambassador Kristie A. Kenney
for reasons 1.4(b) and (d).

¶1. (U) THIS IS AN ACTION MESSAGE. SEE PARA. 2.

¶2. (SBU) Embassy Manila requests Diplomatic Security add
Jemaah Islamiyah operative Lito Rebio (aka Mu’awiyah, aka
Nique, aka Muhammad Ali), a Singapore citizen of Indian
descent born on January 14, 1965, to the Department of
State’s Rewards For Justice list. We recommend up to $1
million as a reward for information leading to his arrest or
capture.

¶3. (S/NF) A former Lance Corporal in the Singapore Armed
Forces, Rebio is an explosive expert and infantry tactics
trainer. He has been directly linked to al-Qaida and is an
intimate associate of JI operatives Marwan, Dulmatin, and
Umar Patek.

¶4. (S/NF) Rebio has been reportedly in the southern
Philippines since 2000. He is believed currently located in
central Mindanao, where he is receiving support from elements
of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. Rebio continues to
pass on his bomb-making skills, and has been connected to
multiple terrorist incidents here, including the recent
series of bombings in Mindanao.

¶5. (S/NF) The announcement of a new high-value reward, and
subsequent publicity, will attack the web of social,
religious, and cultural ties upon which Rebio and other JI
terrorists have relied for their safety and freedom. The
Rewards for Justice program has already helped restrict the
movement of the JI terrorists Dulmatin and Umar Patek, and
could have a significant impact on Rebio’s freedom of action
and ability to conduct JI activities in central Mindanao.

¶6. (U) The point of contact for this request is Regional
Security Officer Jake Wohlman at 63-2-527-6300 x2290.
