Roxas: Sino nag-finance sa Kidapawan protesters?

Ron Gagalac, ABS-CBN News

MINDORO - Administration standard-bearer Mar Roxas is calling for a deeper investigation into last week's bloody protest in Kidapawan City, insinuating that politics may have played a role in the death of two farmers.

"May mga reports na hindi mga taga-North Cotabato ang mga tao na andun. Papaano sila dumating dun? Sino nag-finance sa kanila?" Roxas said.

Roxas urged candidates not to exploit the Kidapawan incident for their own campaigns.

"May mga report na may mga pulitiko na nangampanya, ginamit itong okasyon na ito para sa kanilang pangangampanya. Tama ba ito?

"May mga namatay dito, hindi ito dapat na basta-basta lang na headline or basta-basta lang na gagamitin sa pulitika. Kinokondena natin ang karahasan na nangyari pero dapat malaman papano nangyari ito," he said.
