MANILA, Philippines — Sen. JV Ejercito filed on Monday Senate Resolution No. 875 condemning the bombing last Sunday at the Mindanao State University and calling for the government to “bring the perpetrators to justice.”

“This act of violence against innocent civilians practicing their faith in a religious gathering is an act of terrorism that should be condemned in the highest possible terms. Such barbaric acts have no place in our society that the government so long tried to become peaceful and accommodating to all religious beliefs,” Ejercito’s resolution reads.


“[The Senate is] urging military and law enforcement agencies to undertake the necessary steps to bring the perpetrators to justice,” it adds.
