Pres. Duterte Bares Matrix of Alleged Sources of Funds in Marawi City Siege

The very first President from Mindanao, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte released a matrix of alleged drug lords allegedly invovled in funding the 3-month-long siege of Marawi City. The revelations of the President was made during his fifth visit in Marawi City on Thursday.

According to the President during a press conference, the military already completed the matrix by identifying the personalities allegedly involved in the Marawi Siege which caused a billions of damages to properties and livelihoods aside from the lost lives of Filipinos in Mindanao.

The Philippine troops fighting in Marawi were also wondering why the terrorists did not run out of firearms, ammunition and other resources while fighting the government forces.

Pres. Duterte was quoted as saying "How come that Marawi until now is still fighting? Let me ask you a question. We're in the third month. How come the Maute brothers and other terrorists were able to stockpile so much ordnance and bullets and ammunition and IED?" Pres. Duterte said.

The President added further "Saan nila kinuha 'yun? And three months, I said, there were still fighting. I don't know if there's fighting going one. But that is one. And we were looking for the source of money," he added.

The tough-talking President then presented a matrix "We have now a good picture of what happened in Marawi about the drugs. This is the matrix," Duterte said.

Pres. Duterte also revealed that one of those who helped finance the pro-ISIS Maute group when they attacked Marawi City since May 23 is no other than the slain Ozamiz City Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog, one of Mindanao's most influential public figure, who is also well-known leader of an alleged crime syndicate.

The former Mayor of Davao City turned President of the Republic had previously said that illegal drug funded the Marawi siefe. One of the evidence presented by the government troops was the recovery of millions of cash in one of Maute's hideouts during the raid conducted by the Philippine Marines.
