Selective information on Mamasapano probe nixed

Feb. 20, 2015

A labor group denounced Friday the Senate’s move to provide only selective information to the public from the Congressional hearings on the Mamasapano encounter.

In a statement, Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino (BMP) said, “selective dissemination of crucial information by the Senate will only make justice unattainable for the grieving families of the Mamasapano victims but more importantly, it will not guarantee lasting peace in Mindanao.”

Senate President Franklin Drilon on Wednesday said that the Senate shall conduct an all-party caucus to decide on which information extracted from the executive sessions will be shared to the public.

The BMP is adamant that all information extracted from the executive sessions must be disclosed to the public since the grounds, they claim for the ban on public disclosure is “contradictory to the interests of the people.”
