‘We all made a mistake,
MILF peace won’t work’

The killing of 44 Special Action Force commandos in Mamasapano, Maguindanao shows that the pursuit of peace with the Moro Islamic Liberation front is not feasible, Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, who was in Bacolod City Saturday, said.

"The MILF wants to put up a totalitarian kingdom in Mindanao and it will be a take-off or a base for terrorism", was Cayetano’s reaction when asked if government should pursue the Bangsamoro peace accord with the MILF.

"All of us who believed that the MILF is sincere made a mistake," he said.moremoremore

Mass leave will
worsen problem – cop

A mass leave of absence is not a solution and will only aggravate the existing problems in the Philippines National Police.

This was the view of Sipalay Police Chief Supt. Luisito Acebuche, one of the pioneers of the PNP Special Action Force, who joined the “walk of sympathy and justice” in Bacolod City Saturday for the 44 fallen SAF commandoes.

The alumni association of the Philippine National Police Academy had threatened the government that it would urge all 4,000 PNPA graduates in the field to take a “mass leave” if justice is not served for the 44 slain policemen.moremoremore

Australian wanted for murder
apprehended in Dumaguete


An Australian national wanted for the grisly murder of a 17-year-old girl in Dipolog City, Zamboanga del Norte Friday, was arrested near a resto bar at Flores Avenue in Barangay Piapi, Dumaguete City, at around 11:30 a.m. yesterday.

Supt. James Goforth, Dumaguete police chief, identified the suspect as Ali Ali, 42, an Australian national and who appears, based on credentials, to have entered the Philippines legally. The man had his passport with him, Goforth added.

Ali was the subject of joint police operations by the Dumaguete police, the Dipolog police and the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group for the past three days, after he allegedly killed the minor whose body was found in a room of a pension house in Dipolog City Fridaymoremoremore
