There are two strong reasons why the Philippine National Police (PNP) is in favor to extend Martial Law in Mindanao.
PNP Chief Director General Ronald Dela Rosa, said the first reason is that narco-politicians helping the Maute are not yet accounted for and second is the spread of loose firearms in Lanao Del Sur and nearby areas that they still have to recover.
Dela Rosa said that last Friday they have submitted their Position Paper to the Office of the President.
The PNP Chief added that he did not put any time line on how long the Martial Law extension since it will still depend to the President.
Dela Rosa stressed their recommendation is centered in the Law Enforcement Perspective while the AFP will provide the military perspective.
