Senate will support any process that will uncover the truth on the Mamasapano attack, assured Drilon
MANILA-Senate President Franklin M. Drilon said the Senate will support any move that will uncover the truth on the Mamasapano attack and likewise end the spread of misinformation and lies regarding the unfortunate tragedy that left 44 elite commandos dead.
“I support any process that will lead us to the truth and enable Filipinos to get to the bottom of this unfortunate and unwarranted bloody encounter that killed dozens of members of thePhilippine National Police Special Action Force,” said Drilon.
“Whether it is through the Truth Commission being proposed or through the Board of Inquiry, or with the aid of a congressional hearing, the most important thing is we get to the facts,” he added.
“Our search for justice in this event begins by establishing the truth. Every Filipino deserves to know why our policemen died, how they were killed, and most importantly, who in the end killed them,” Drilon stressed.
He said the immediate establishments of the facts will also stop the spread of misinformation, confusion and lies about the unfortunate tragedy.
Drilon explained that the bill on the creation of a Truth Commission will be referred to the appropriate Senate committee, which will look into the necessity of creating an independent fact-finding committee to investigate the Mamasapano attack.
“If the committee to where the bill will be referred believes that in order to uncover the truth, the creation of a Truth Commission is necessary, then we will support it,” said Drilon.
