Former Special Action Force (SAF) commander Getulio Napenas mentioned the Senate ought to subpoena records from telecommunications firms Smart and Globe if ever it needs to reinvestigate the 2015 Mamasapano bloodbath.
“Ang nakikita ko nga isubpoena na lang ng Senado ang cellphone provider, Smart or Globe, yung cellphone transaction ng lahat ng key players noong operation sa Mamapasano,” mentioned Napenas throughout his go to the Department of Justice (DOJ).
“Huli yan!” assured Napenas who backs a Senate re-opening of a probe into the incident the place 44 SAF members had been slain.
Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre is a relative and in addition has been the lawyer of Napenas.
Napenas rebuffed the assertion of former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aguino III who claimed his conscience is obvious over the incident.
“Pananaw niya yun. Ang maghuhusga nyan ang taumbayan,” Napenas mentioned.
“Tingnan niyo naman noong unang lumabas yan hindi nga niya sinasagot yan eh. Tanong ng media sa kanya sino nag-approve ng operation, hindi niya sinasagot,” he recounted.
Last July 14, the Office of the Ombudsman ordered the indictment of Aquino over his legal responsibility over the botched operation below Oplan Exodus which resulted in the deaths of the 44 SAF males in Mamasapano, Maguinanao.
