PH President attended plant inauguration in the same day the fallen SAF members arrived

The Philippine President, Benigno Aquino III, was absent at the Villamor Air Base where 42 out of the 44 killed Philippine National Police Special Action Force members have arrived Thursday, four days after a police operation in Maguindanao. Reason for his absence is because he attended the inauguration of the Mitsubishi Motors Philippines' Santa Rosa plant, which is the former plant used by Ford Philippines before it was closed in 2012.

His absence sparked fury from netizens, questioning why did he's not present in the arrival of the slain SAF members, but the Malacanang Palace officials denied reports about the president ignoring the slain SAF members because the president will attend the necrological services at Camp Bagong Diwa at 1000 hours, Friday, Philippine Time. The PNP is expected for his presence at the event, which served as the national day of mourning for the elite policemen who were killed last Sunday in an encounter with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters.
