MANILA, Feb 12 (Mabuhay) – Senator Grace Poe on Thursday condemned the brutal manner of killing a PNP-Special Action Force commando as shown in a video that viral Wednesday.
“Nakakagalit po ngunit sobriety o mahinahong paghihimay at pagtrato dito ang kailangan. Mahinahong pagtantya ng katotohanan at tulad ng marami kung ang video man na iyon ay tutuong kuha sa insidenteng naganap sa Mamasapano, ikinukondena namin ang pagkuha nito,” Poe said at the start of the resumption of the Senate hearing on the Mamasapano clash.
“Hindi kayang ipaliwanag ng salita at damdamin ang pagkuha ng iyon ng video. Ito po ay barbaric at walang awa,” she added.
She also thanked Mohagher Iqbal, chairman of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front peace panel, for attending the hearing assuring him that he will be allowed to speak and express the sentiments of his group.
Poe said the senators will also have an opportunity to ask questions on the survivors of Mamasapano hearing but it will most likely be in an executive session. (MNS)
