‘overkill’ of SAF men
Tears fell as Philippine National Police officer-in-charge Deputy Director General Leonardo Espina recounted the medico-legal report on the brutal killing of the members of the Special Action Force in yesterday’s joint hearing of the House Committee on Public Order and Safety, and Peace, Unification and Unity.
Espina, who had to stop while trying to control his emotions, said he had sleepless nights after learning from the medico-legal report that one of his men, who was only slightly wounded, was shot at close range.

Duterte shrugs off presidency
talks, promotes federal gov’t
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW
Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte again shrugged off reports that he will seek the presidency in the 2016 elections when he visited Dumaguete City Wednesday to promote federalism in schools as well as meet with local officials.
Duterte’s visit was earlier reported to be part of a tour to “listen to the people” and determine his chances in the presidential race next year.
Former North Cotabato Gov. Manny Piñol, a staunch supporter of Duterte, had said before the mayor’s visit that it is up to him to decide on this. He said Duterte’s visit was part of a campaign to promote his advocacy for a federal system of government.
