    FORMER Justice Secretary Leila de Lima has a lot of explaining to do in connection with the slow resolution of the complaint filed against 90 people accused of taking part in the killing of 44 police commandos in Mamasapano, Maguindanao almost a year ago, Senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr., said Wednesday.

    Marcos, who heads the Senate committee on local government, said he will make sure that De Lima is invited to the hearing that will be conducted by the Senate committee on public order and dangerous drug so that she can explain the delay in the filing of criminal charges against the suspects.

    Senator Grace Poe, chairperson of the Senate committee on public order and dangerous drugs, set the reopening of the hearing of the Mamasapano encounter on January 25, the first anniversary of the massacre.

    “I want to know why charges have not been filed yet. Why is it that the families of the SAF 44 are still waiting for justice,” Marcos said in an interview after visiting Barangay Old Balara in Quezon City.

    The senator said De Lima promised to have the 90 suspects charged with murder but until now, no complaint has been filed in court.

    The National Bureau of Investigation-National Prosecution Service Special Investigation Team filed a complaint at the DOJ in September last year against 90 respondents allegedly involved in the Mamasapano incident.

    Marcos said he wants to ask De Lima why the families of the slain policemen are still waiting for justice.

      Bongbong Marcos is not far behind from his father: intelligent, brave, sharp, and fearless.

      Go ahead, sir, time will come you will soon to be in Malacaniang and make this nation great again.

      Hopefully, during your time, there will be no Ninoy who talks like Satan–convincing but full of wickedness and evilest. (It was Ninoy Aquino Jr who caused this nation in its present poor and pitifull situation..)

    2. De Lima did not accomplish much of anything the entire time she was in charge of the Dept of Justice. All she seemed to ever do was show up on television bragging about what a great job she was doing.
      She had 3 opposition senators arrested for pork barrel fund misuse while protecting hundreds of Aquino allies that should of been arrested for the same thing.
