Former SAF commander thanks Duterte for reopening mamasapano tragedy


Former Special Action Force (SAF) commander Getulio Napenas expressed his gratitude to President Rodrigo Duterte for re-investigating the case of the Mamasapano, where 44 SAF commandos killed.

"Ngayon pa lang nagpapasalamat na ako at tuwang-tuwa kay President Duterte na magkakaroon ng truth commission. Sisiguraduhin ko diyan na lalabas ang katotohanan kung bakit SAF ang ginamit, at hindi military," Napeñas said in his inerview in  radio DZMM.

Napeñas said that truth will surely come out with the reopening.

"May mga hidden at hindi lumalabas na impormasyon tungkol sa tunay na dahilan kung bakit SAF," he said.


He also encouraged those who know the truth to speak out and"Iyung hindi nabigyan ng pagkakataon na magsalita ng katotohanan, ito na ang pagkakataon nila na boluntaryong lumabas. Marami ang hindi nabigyan ng pagkakataon na magsalita dahil alam naman ninyo, pinagtulong-tulungan ako ng administrasyon ni Presidente Aquino na idiin at gawing scapegoat at fall guy," Napeñas said.

Napeñas said that Aquino knew about the operation even if he deny it. 
"Sinasabi niya, he was not the part of the planning, preparation and execution of Oplan Exodus. Hindi ba kasama sa planning and preparation iyung briefing namin na nagsa-suggest pa siya na dagdagan ang tropa at coordination. Hindi ba siya kasama sa execution na nagbibigay siya ng utos through General Purisima?" said Napeñas.

He cited that Aquino and Purisima were the only one lying.

"Diyos ko, ilang beses ko nang sinabi iyan. Hindi ako nagsasabi ng kasinungalingan. Sa lahat ng pag-iimbestiga at narinig ng ating mga kababayan, sino kaya ang nagsisinungaling sa amin? Kayo na ang maghusga," he lamented.

"Maraming indisputable facts na ang nagmamando dito ay si Presidente Aquino, at idinanaan niya kay General Purisma, maging noong siya ay aktibo pa at noong suspendido na," he added.

Earlier, Duterte also stated his disappointed to Aquino for the tragedy happened. Last January 25, 2nd death anniversary, Duterte met with the families of fallen 44. 


Duterte said that he will provide justice to the victims by reopening the case.
