‘He was not supposed to exercise powers’-Duterte on Purisima

Davao-City-Mayor-Rodrigo-DuterteDAVAO CITY – Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte remains critical of the Aquino government’s handling of the bloody Mamasapano clash saying that it was careless when it authorized the anti-terrorist raid that led to the massacre of 44 Special Action Force police, 17 MILF (Moro Islamic Liberation Front) fighters and 9 civilians.

In his Sunday television program, Duterte said that “In the eyes of the President, PNP Chief Alan Purisima was a brilliant soldier (but), the fact remains that he was suspended. He was not supposed to exercise the powers of his office. You order soldiers to go there and die…when you ought not to be moving around with (that) authority.”DAVAO TODAY
