STATEMENT OF LP SENATORIAL CANDIDATE BRIG. GEN. DANILO LIM ON THE DECLARATION OF MARTIAL LAW IN MAGUINDANAO
“Will the declaration of Martial Law in Maguindanao help in answering why stocks and piles of arms and munitions—officially purchased by our military and police establishment—were found to be in the possession of the Ampatuans?
“This administration is paying the price for coddling the warlords. The government’s motive in declaring Martial Law in Maguindanao is not to restore peace and normalcy, but to whitewash its own involvement in the status quo of fear and terror in Mindanao.
“When will we get to answer the question the Magdalo soldiers have asked years back – why are our soliders killed by our own bullets?”
