PIA Press Release
2008/11/27

Gov't troops recover hand-held radio, uniforms, other items from LMG

Cotabato City (27 November) -- Elements of the 75th Infantry Battalion, Philippine Army, recovered a hand-held radio, antennae and other items belonging to LMGs under Umbra Kato of the 105th base command following an encounter with government troops on Monday, Nov. 24.

6th Infantry Division spokesperson LTC Julieto Ando positively identified said items left behind by the LMG during an encounter with the elements of the 75th IB at barangay Tukanalipao, Mamasapano town in Maguindanao.

The MILF, Ando said, cannot deny these items belong to the LMG since these were recovered after the encounter.

Earlier, government troops have likewise recovered assorted high-power firearms, icom-base radio and other items in said area during manhunt operations against Umbra Kato.

The military believes that the series of recovery of valuable items of the LMG have negative implications to the MILF operations.

"We believe that these recovered items belong to the LMG and this has severely affected the control of the MILF leadership over their troops who have apparently splintered," Ando said.

The pursuit operations against Kato will continue with some technical adjustments, he added. (PBC/PIA Cotabato City) [top]
