Alan Cayetano claims he has evidence to prove MILF coddled Marwan


The Moro Islamic Liberation Front coddled Malaysian terrorist Zulkifli bin Hir, and the government knew about it, Senate Majority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano claimed on Tuesday.

Cayetano added that he was still in the process of gathering the evidence to prove his conclusions. “At a proper time, in a few days, we will conclude our research but as early as now I can tell you we have evidence that government knew and knows that the MILF protected and coddled Marwan,” he said.

Cayetano did not reveal the nature of the evidence he was gathering.

The senator was also disappointed over the reported agreement between the leadership of the Senate and House of Representative to pass the BBL by June this year. “[B]ecause as we get to know more, more and more people say can we trust the MILF? Sa akin every relationship has to start with the truth and not with a lie.

“I will quote Chairman [Mohagher] Iqbal. He said trust and confidence. Pwede bang magkaroon ng trust and confidence kung kasinungalingan kaagad ang umpisa ng relationship, hindi ba dapat katotohanan?”

Cayetano pointed out that Congress had earlier declared that the BBL would not be passed until the investigation into the Mamasapano clash was ended.

Some 44 Special Action Force commandos were killed in a January 25 firefight with the MILF as the police commandos attempted to serve a warrant of arrest against Marwan and Filipino bomb-maker Basit Usman. — DVM, GMA News
