COTABATO CITY – The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) on Thursday said it would give the Department of Justice (DOJ) an executive summary of its investigation report on the Mamasapano clash where 44 Special Action Force commandos were killed.

MILF chief negotiator Mohagher Iqbal told the Inquirer by phone that his group received a letter from Justice Secretary Leila de Lima’s requesting a copy of their report as soon as possible.

Iqbal said their report was already finished but they were still drafting an executive summary for their counterparts.

“Our report is internal to us. What we will give to the government, including the DOJ, is the executive summary,” Iqbal said.

Iqbal said they would also give their executive summary to the Malaysia, the facilitator in their peace talks with the government. The Malaysian facilitators will forward the report to the government peace panel members.

Earlier, De Lima, gave the assurance that her team was looking into all sides of the January 25, 2015, incident in Tukanalipao in Mamasapano, Maguindanao, saying they had asked the MILF for a copy of its own probe.

Last week, a DOJ inspection team was supposed to go the site of the Mamasapano clash but the visit was aborted because of fighting between government forces and BIFF rebels near the area.

The DOJ created a special team composed of members of the National Bureau of Investigation and the National Prosecution Service to investigate the clash and determine who should be held criminally liable.
