Betrayal is despicable, sorrow indescribable—Albay Gov



LEGAZPI CITY—The Provincial Government of Albay is pledging P10,000 as financial assistance to the bereaved families of each of the 44 PNP-SAF troopers who were brutally slain on Sunday, January 25.

Gov. Joey Salceda in a statement said that the cops were “slaughtered in cold blood and like sitting ducks, in broad daylight and in the open fields of Maguindanao with only cornstalks as their shield just as they were surrounded, out powered and outnumbered. Our people are deeply thankful to them as we, esp. our youth, take inspiration from the moral courage they have demonstrated when they enforced the rule of law and secure social justice for our nation.”

“Unmistakably, they prove that there is hope for the Philippines as a nation-state. The betrayal is despicable. Our dignity violated and our trust destroyed. Our sorrow is indescribable,” Salceda added.

Meanwhile, Vice Gov. Harold Ong Imperial announced in a press conference that the funds will be sourced from the Albay Integrated Social Service (AISS).

A consultation meeting discussing the process of extending the financial assistance was held at the Provincial Capitol here earlier today.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
