Licuan-Baay, Abra – The Licuan-Baay Binongan Tribe Organization (LIBABITO) had a meeting and discussed about the murder of three (3) members of the Ligiw family at Binongan Center, Licuan-Baay Municipal Hall on March 13, 2014 which was attended by 50 elders led by LIBABITO chairman Mr. Victorino Bernal and Mr. Nestor Castillo, the chairman of Social Justice and Human Rights.
Lt. Col. Danilo R. Domingo, CO of 41st IB was invited to attend the meeting to shed light on the inquiry being initiated by LIBABITO elders regarding to the Ligiw case. After the privilege speech, Lt. Col. Domingo clarified to the elders of LIBABITO that as far as inquiry is concerned, the unit fully supports and cooperates with the ongoing investigation of the Abra Police Provincial Office and one with the people of Licuan-Baay in pursuit of the truth and justice.
The consultative meeting in one way or another has proven that the elders and the leaders of Licuan-Baay and 41st IB are one in looking for the truth about the Ligiw case. Lt. Col. Domingo who discussed the issues and accusations made against the 41st IB by Abra Human Rights Movement (AHRM) and Kakailian Salakniban Tay Amin Nagtaudan (KASTAN) are fabricated and exaggerated. He reiterated that the 41st IB has long been in Abra since 2004 and its officers and enlisted personnel strictly adhere to the International Humanitarian Law (IHL), observe and respect Human Rights and Rule of Law which are few of the guiding principles in the conduct of its operations, be it military and non-military operations.
