“Today is exactly one year since the Mamasapano massacre. Let us pray for the repose of the souls for the SAF Fallen 44 and for the grieving families that they left behind. But most of all, Justice should be given for the SAF Fallen 44 and those responsible for their death should be prosecuted and put behind the bars.” This is the clear statement of Congressman Lobregat one year after the Mamasapano massacre.

In memory of the SAF 44, Congressman Lobregat has caused the airing of excerpts of the House Congressional Probe conducted last February 11 and April 8, 2015. Lobregat said the excerpts are being aired on SkyCable Channel 57 and Mindanao Cable Channel 17 starting January 23, 2016.

It will be recalled that the House conducted its first Mamasapano hearing on February 11, 2015. It was a tense, emotion-filled and unruly hearing. And it was during turn of Lobregat’s questioning regarding the protocol of coordination before the Police or Military operate in an MILF area that OIC Police Chief General Leonardo Espina turned emotional in his response; and also the heated discussion on whether to play the viral video showing the shooting of a dying and helpless SAF Commando.

The Mamasapano Probe in the Senate is supposed to open on January 27, 2016 in the behest of Senator Juan Ponce Enrile. (Lea LM)
