PNP board of inquiry head vows justice for SAF44
MANILA, Philippines — The head of the Philippine National Police’s Board of Inquiry vowed on Monday to give justice to the 44 members of the PNP Special Action Force who were killed in the Mamasapano encounter last January 25 by “seeking out the truth.”
“We will give justice to our troops by seeking out the truth,” Police Director Benjamin Magalong, head of the BOI, when he faced the hearing of the Senate committee on public order, joint with committees on peace, unification and reconciliation, and finance on the Mamasapano incident.
Magalong made this promise after he presented before the committees the “initial facts” of their investigation on the Mamasapano incident.
Magalong’s presentation was marred with technical problems, prompting the committees to suspend the deliberations.
Below is the powerpoint presentation shown by Magalong during the hearing.
