“I fully agree with the wording of the committee report that our troops were murdered by members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters, and other armed groups. That’s why the Department of Justice should hunt them, charge them, and jail them,” Senator Bongbong Marcos said.
He added that what the families of 44 slain Special Action Force troopers ultimately need is swift justice. “The families of the victims want no less than swift justice. They are not asking for anything else, they are not hoping for other things than to see the culprits behind bars.”
“I’m really convinced by and agree with the findings that our troops were massacred and murdered. That’s what I’ve said from the start. And the videos that we have seen showed how our SAF members were senselessly killed. That’s why murder is the right gruesome term,” the senator added.
