MANILA, Philippines — Saying that everybody seems to have their own version of the truth, the Board of Inquiry (BOI) headed by Director Benjamin Maalog, revealed today that the reason for the delay of the releasing of the final investigation results is due to it being changed into a “fill-in-the-blanks” format, in order to please whoever it is that will read it.
Its report was originally scheduled to be submitted to acting Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, Deputy Director General Leonardo Espina, by the end of February but the submission was rescheduled to March 6. Last week, the BOI announced that the submission was rescheduled to Monday, March 9.

“Hindi pa nga po nailalabas ang final report sinasabing nawhitewash na agad,” said Maalog. “Kahit anong ilabas namin na findings, malamang ay may magsasabi na walang katotohanan ang resulta.“
He added, “Kaya minarapat na namin na gawing fill in the blanks nalang ito.”
According to Philippine National Police (PNP) spokesman Chief Supt. Generoso Cebo Sr., the BOI’s final report will contain multiple blank fields that the reader is free to fill up with whatever version of the truth that they prefer.
“Kung sa tingin nyo si Pangulong Aquion o si General Purisima ang dapat managot, aba’y go!” explained Cebo. “Pwede ring kasalanan ito ng mga imperyalistang Amerikano, why not?“
“Parang Choose Your Own Adventure sya na libro na kinalakihan natin,” he added. “Ikaw na ang bahala kung sino dapat ang managot, sino ang bolero, sino ang utu-uto at sino yung nagmamatigas na ayaw akuin ang responsibilidad.“
“Pwede din si Gloria, pero lagot kayo kay Clooney.“
