THE Special Investigation Task Group (SITG) of the Police Regional Office (PRO) 12 has filed charges against the suspects of the Dec. 31 bombing in South Seas Mall in Cotabato City that left two dead and more than 30 others wounded. In a statement Thursday, PRO-12 Director Eliseo T. Rasco said the charges of two counts of murder and 34 counts of frustrated murder were brought Wednesday before the Office of Prosecutor Anwar Masacal in Cotabato City. “We need the community to help us detect any activity that poses a threat to our security. We need everybody to report to our law enforcers any suspicious looking person and any bags or backpacks or anything left unattended,” said Mr. Rasco. One of the suspects, identified as 56-year-old Salipudin Pasandalan, is already under police custody after he surrendered on Sunday. The other suspect identified as Alias Saed Nur Kasim remains at large. — Vince Angelo C. Ferreras
