Mar. 07, 2015

DAVAO CITY – The Palace said on Friday that the assistance taken from the President’s Social Fund has been released to families of the 44 police commandos who died in the Mamasapano encounter last January 25.

Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte said in a press briefing that the Philippine National Police is also “expediting the processing of some of the benefits.”

According to Valte, 61 relatives of the slain troopers have been given employment and enlistment assistance while other requests are being processed by the Department of Labor and Employment.

Educational assistance, she said, will be provided by the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) for the legitimate children of the fallen troopers.
