THE National Security Council (NSC) on Wednesday said the group behind the attempt to bomb the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) early this week belongs to a dubious organization and is not a threat to national security but poses a danger to public safety.
Cesar Garcia, Director General of the NSC, said the group endangers the public because it can cause injuries and damage to properties.
Garcia was referring to the group of individuals arrested Monday at the parking lot of NAIA 3 terminal while assembling explosives.
The National of Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has filed charges of illegal possession of explosives against Grandeur Pepito Guerrero, 43. The group leader, Emmanuel San Pedro, 22, of San Rafael, Bulacan, and Sonny Yohanon, 25 of Oas, Eastern Samar.
“They are classified under the generic term dubious organizations,” Garcia in an interview after the hearing of the Finance Committee on the proposed 2015 budget of the NSC.
When asked if he knew who is behind the group, Garcia said he had an idea but he would rather let the NBI make the disclosure.
