Political strategist Malou Tiquia rebutted singer Jim Paredes' accusation that the investigation on the killing of the SAF 44 in Mamasapano two years ago was meant to distract the public from the murder of a Korean businessman by the police.
Paredes in his Twitter account said, "Is Digong meeting Mamasapano families so we forget the strangled Korean and Palpak Bato?"
President Rodrigo Duterte on the second anniversary of the account said he will conduct a thorough investigation the case allegedly made possiblle by former President Benigno Aquino III and former Philippine National Police Chief Alan Purisima. iquia answered the singer's tweet indirectly by claiming that the two incidents are too different.
"Paano magiging panakip butas ang #Mamasapano sa pagpatay ng Koreano? Ang #Mamasapano ay may basbas ni Pangulong Aquino, ika nga, "state-sanctioned operation." Ang pagpatay sa Koreano ay ginawa ng mga pulis sangano (rogue cops)," she said.
"So paano sila pareho? Paki-turo nga. At paano panakip ang #Mamasapano sa pagpatay sa Koreano?" she added.
She it was disrespectful to ask tht question.
"Talaga bang baliko ang inyong pag-iisip at ang baba na ng inyong respeto na sa death anniversary ng #SAF44, dudungisan pa rin ninyo ang kanilang ala-ala?" she said.
