Cayetano said the visit was his second of a SAF base after he visited the 55th SAF base in Zamboanga City recently.

The 55th SAF has the most number of members who are part of the SAF 44 who died in encounters with Muslim armed groups in Maguindanao last January.

“Many of the SAF men told me that the their barracks is in a better condition,” said the senator.

He pointed out that the SAF base in Silay “is a warehouse converted into a base and the land where it stands is not owned by the government.”

“I was also told that even during trainings, only half of their weapons and equipment are actually working and functioning,” Cayetano said.
