The tandem of Senators’ Alan Peter Cayetano and Pia Cayetano questioned the Moro Islamic Liberation Front for their intentions on why returned cannibalized firearms of the dead PNP-SAF commandos?
Senator Alan took the opportunity to probe Mohager Iqbal of the MILF as the latter attends the fifth day of the Senate hearing on the Mamasapano encounter.
Based on the report, the firearms that were returned by the MILF are no longer useable because some of their parts are either missing or have been replaced.
The older Cayetano asked Iqbal regarding this issue and why the MILF allowed this to happen. This move from the MILF only pushes the public to trust them less especially when it comes to the peace talks.
Iqbal came to the MILF defense stating that the firearms being cannibalized is just a mere speculation. Maybe, some of these were already not working after being hit during the said encounter in January 25.
Senator Pia then commented that it already took the MILF a long time to return the guns and now they found out that they’ve been cannibalized as well.
