The discussion regarding the result of the investigation on the Mamasapano tragedy in Maguindanao hasn’t been scheduled yet in the plenary.

Senator Grace Poe didn’t mention any date that the said result will be discussed in the plenary.

Prior to this, Poe, chair of the Senate Committee on Public Order said that the committee report has been submitted to the Office of the Ombudsman on May 19.

The lady Senator promised that she will be able to submit the said report to the plenary last May 4 after the end of the five public hearings and five executive sessions.

The report states that President Benigno Aquino III has the ultimate responsibility after allowing then suspended PNP Chief Alan Purisima to meddle with Oplan Exodus.

The committee recommends filing of Administrative charges against Purisima and General Getulio Napenas, the former head of the PNP-SAF.   (with DZRH Milky Rigonan)
