Former President Fidel Ramos has bucked the call of Senate President Franklin Drilon to move on from the controversy arising from the death of 44 Special Action Force (SAF) troopers at the hands of Moro rebel forces last month.
At the 29th anniversary of the Edsa People Power 1 revolution, Ramos said the people should continue “fight[ing] for the truth”regarding the police operation that ended in the SAF troopers’ deaths in Mamasapano, Maguindanao.
Sought for comment on Drilon’s statement, Ramos said: “Move on kamo? Tuwid na daan kamo? The road to hell is straight.”
But while Ramos is disgruntled about the government’s handling of the Mamasapano crisis, he also does not support calls for President Benign Aquino III to resign.
“Baka sino naman dyan ang papalit,” he said.
