On the money recovered from a Maute stronghold in Marawi City

The authorities should milk that cash recovery with all the valuable intelligence information that our troops may put into good use with possibly identifying the financiers of the Maute terrorists that attacked Marawi City and other co-conspirators.

For one, the owner of the establishment where the monies were recovered should be background investigated at the very least. Or, that could be the loot taken by the Maute attackers from the banks in Marawi City.

Either way, I take my hat off to our soldiers. No matter how battle-weary they are and considering the risk of life they’re going through, they were not tempted with the prospect of a comfortable life for themselves and their families. Instead, and stuck to their honor and integrity as professional members of the AFP.
