Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas today urged various sectors calling for an independent investigation to await the outcome of the probe of the Philippine National Police’s Board of Inquiry into the killing of the 44 Special Action Force (SAF) troopers in Mamasapano, Maguindanao.
Roxas, while addressing 200 SAF troopers at the Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig on Sunday, said he, too, is in search for explanations and answers, just like the families, friends and batchmates of the fallen SAF members.
“Like all of you, I am very interested to know the results of the investigation of the Board of Inquiry for us to know the truth. Let us patiently wait for the report and see the findings of the Board," Roxas said.
The BOI, which was formed last week, tapped Police Deputy Director and Officer-in-Charge Leonardo Espina, Police Director Edgardo Ingking of the Directorate for Integrated Police Operations in Western Mindanao, and Chief Superintendent Catalino Rodrigo of the Directorate for Human Resource and Doctrine Development to dig into the lapses and determine and suggest solution to possible future doctrinal, tactical and operational issues.
Roxas reiterated the BOI investigation will be truthful and transparent and will be finished under a clear timeline.
“To show respect to those who lost their loved ones in the incident, we will make sure that the board will be transparent and truthful,” Roxas said.
At the same time, Roxas said that while he shares the SAF's and the public's sadness, grief, anger and frustration over the deaths of the 44 fallen troopers, the tears and sorrows must be transformed and translated to inspire and encourage police and SAF officers to continue on and pick up where the fallen heroes have ended.
"Let us painfully and slowly move on. Let us always remember the hard lessons that this incident has taught us. Let our pains and anger move us to work harder and become better persons," he said.
