THE relatives of the police commandos killed the controversial 2015 Mamasapano massacre are set to file multiple charges of homicide against former President Benigno Aquino III for the wrongful deaths of their kin, their lawyer said Thursday.
Lawyer Ferdinand Topacio said the relatives will be assisted by the Volunteers against Crime and Corruption in the filing charges against Aquino, former Philippine National Police chief Alan Purisima and former PNP Special Action Force director Getulio Napeñas.
After stepping down from office on Thurday, Aquino lost his six-year immunity from suit after the assumption into office of President Rodrigo Duterte.
The Mamasapano clash was an incident that occurred during a police operation, codenamed Oplan Exodus, which took place on Jan. 25, 2015 at Mamasapano, Maguindanao, by the SAF against the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.
