President Duterte recently said that he would reopen the investigation of the Mamasapano operation which led to the deaths of 44 police commandos more than two years ago.

"Si Kris nag-text. Sabi, 'Huwag mo namang ipakulong si Noynoy," Duterte said.

“Wala akong habol ng tao na ipakulong ko ang mga dating opisyal. I am not into the habit of sending to prison the guys from the other side of the political fence or whatever. I just want to give the Filipino people the truth,” Duterte added.

"No Kris. I am not out to find faults. I just want to know the truth," Duterte responded.

The former President is facing homicide charges before the Ombudsman in connection with Oplan Exodus, a police operation on January 25, 2015 against terrorists Zulkifli bin Hir and Basit Usman in Mamasapano, Maguindanao.

Duterte also said he was no longer going to push through with the creation of a commission that will investigate the Mamasapano incident.

The President said he would instead wait for the Office of the Ombudsman to finish its investigation.

"I am not going ahead with the creation of a commission because apparently the Ombudsman has said that it's still pending before them," Duterte said.

"I do not want to have a multiple incongruity especially if one finding fights with the other. So hintayin ko nalang," he added.
