“The report that we are getting is that the parts were taken from the weapons and they were changed with inferior parts. The point is, that what is supposed to be a confidence-building measure and an act of good faith has turned into the precise opposite,” Senator Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. manifested during the final hearing on the Mamasapano incident.
“This is a classic case of adding insult to injury. In this case, adding insult to death,” the senator adds. He said out of 14 SAF firearms returned were cannibalized.
“Then, there is the declaration that the commanders that were involved in Mamasapano are not going to be identified or turned over and it will be an internal matter in the MILF. Again, this does not inspire confidence in the public.
“And the promise of Chairman Iqbal here in the previous hearing is that the MILF will assist in the identification and the finding of Usman. We have not seen any concrete measures,” Senator Marcos noted.
