The issuance of the ILBO also comes after the termination of the Joint Agreement on Security and Immunity Guarantee between the government and the communist rebels.

Aguirre instructed Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente and Prosecutor General Victor Sepulveda after a Cabinet meeting in Malacanang to coordinate with National Bureau of Investigation Director Dante Gierran for the information about the subjects of the ILBO. These information include known aliases, date and place of birth, copy of passport, and latest photo. (Jeffrey G. Damicog)
