said the families of the slain SAF commandos from the Cordillera "need to move on with our lives," but the governments inability to reveal everything about Mamasapano has kept them from grieving properly.
Said Carap: "Admittedly, we all need the livelihood assistance that the government has promised us.
"I'm not contented because he did not answer my questions," Carap told the Inquirer after the meeting with the President at the Camp Crame Multipurpose Center.
Carap, who traveled from Baguio City to attend the event originally scheduled as a "onestop" assistance program for the beneficiaries of the SAF troopers, sat along with the families of PO2 Noble Kiangan and two other slain officers from Benguet province.
A senior government official, who agreed to talk on condition of anonymity, said the questions raised by Carap
and the other families were "rather difficult to answer."
Carap, a native of Kabayan, Benguet, was Tabdi's friend.
Kabayan Vice Mayor Gideon Todiano, a retired police superintendent, said he supported Carap through criminology school, and described him as a man who was "always ready to help anyone."
She said Carap spent the Christmas holiday in Baguio City before he left for the Maguindanao mission.
25, Janet said, Carap called her to assure her he was safe and his team was awaiting reinforcement.
" "Hindi mababayaran ng pera 'yung mga memories na pwede pa naming ishare (Money can't buy good memories we could share) and the years that we're going to live" together," Carap told Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas, weeping.
Roxas visited PO2 Carap's wake at the Cathedral of Resurrection Church in Baguio City with SAF officerincharge Chief Superintendent Noli Talino, and Metro Manila police head Director Carmelo Valmoria.
