In the wake of a video clip, making its round in the social media, showing alleged members of the Army executing a suspected member of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) sometimes in 2010, Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) chief-of-staff Gen. Gregorio Pio Catapang on Saturday said that measures are now being undertaken to ensure the veracity of the video.

“We’re having it (video) investigated to determine what unit was involved and its authenticity. And if the MILF knows some details about it, then they can give us the information,” the AFP chief stressed.

Catapang said the AFP does not tolerate such actions which runs contrary to his “Kawal na Displinado” (Disciplined Soldier) concept.

“In that concept, abusive soldiers are not allowed nor tolerated in the AFP,” he pointed out.
