On the commemoration of the second anniversary of the Mamasapano massacre

As we remember the second anniversary of the 44 members of the Philippine National Police - Special Action Force (PNP-SAF) killed in Mamasapano, Maguindanao, let us commemorate the memory of their bravery, heroism, and sacrifice.

The search, too, for truth and justice continues. We should persist in uncovering the answers to some of the questions left hanging, and let those responsible for the deaths of the 44 face the courts.

These 44 heroes sacrificed their lives with only one thing in mind: to fulfil their mandate to enforce the law, prevent and control crimes, maintain peace and order, and ensure public safety and internal security.

As the SAF44 accomplished their mission to get Marwan, the government should also complete the promises it had pledged to the grieving families of the brave policemen. They deserve nothing less from a grateful nation.
