MANILA, Philippines — The submission of the final report of the police probe on the Mamasapano debacle has been postponed anew, the Philippine National Police said Monday.

PNP spokesperson Chief Superintendent Generoso Cerbo Jr. said the head of the PNP Board of Inquiry (BOI) looking into the deadly operation in Maguindanao had “requested for extension of submission of findings to PNP officer in charge Deputy Director General Leonardo Espina.”

Magalong heads the investigating body the PNP formed to look into the police operation against international terrorists that cost the lives of 44 policemen, 18 Moro rebels, and five civilians, including a minor.

He is also the director of PNP’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Group.

Earlier Interior Secretary Mar Roxas said the BOI would submit its findings on the Mamasapano incident last Friday, March 6.

Failing that deadline, Roxas said the “latest will be on Monday.”

On Monday, Roxas said in a statement that he was expecting the release of the BOI report on Monday “in the interest of truth and accountability.”

According to Roxas, he will immediately submit a copy of the report to the President upon receipt, as well as to investigating bodies such as the Senate and the House of Representatives.
