Binay says Poe ‘sat’ on Mamasapano report
Opposition leader Vice President Jejomar Binay on Friday slammed potential election rival Senator Grace Poe for her “inaction” on the Senate report on the Mamasapano incident.
According to Binay, the neophyte lawmaker’s supposed negligence on the report is more disappointing than Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales decision to overlook President Benigno Aquino III’s role in the bugled police operation.
“Marami ang hindi makapaniwala sa naging desisyon ng Ombudsman. Ngunit mas marami ang nadismaya sa naging aksiyon sa imbestigasyon ng Senado,” the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) chairman said exactly six months after the tragedy shocked the nation.
“Pagkaraan ng ingay na nilikha nito, hinayaan na lamang ni Senator Grace Poe na maalikabukan ang kanyang report. Hindi man lamang ito ng Senadora sa plenaryo at ngayon ay ‘pending second reading’,” Binay said.
Poe, the current presidential survey frontrunner, had led various Senate hearings and executive sessions on the January 25 incident in her capacity as Public Order committee chair.
Some 44 elite police operatives from the Special Action Force (SAF) perished at the hands of Moro rebels as a result of the bloody encounter.
“Sa kabila nito, taimtim naming panalangin ang pagkamit ng tunay na hustisya ng pamilya ng SAF44,” Binay said. (Randy K. Ortega)
