Former DILG Sec Alunan throws hard questions on Resorts World attack


Government claims that the siege at Resorts World Manila was not a terrorist attack, but former Department of Interior and Local Governance Secretary Rafael Alunan III casts doubts on the true identity and affiliation of the unidentified gunman responsible for the attack.

Alunan pointed out that if the gunman was attempting a casino robbery, then his strategy and movements should have been well-calculated and stealthy, unlike the barge-in tactic he did in Resorts World.

Additionally, Alunan doubts if the whole allegedly robbery scheme was an inside job considering that the gunman seemed well-versed with the floor plan of the building.

Another point to consider is the installment of CCTVs in the building which could have easily captured if the gunman was solo or with accomplices, an information still under question.

Establishments like Resorts World are equipped with sprinkler systems and fire emergency teams that could have wiped out or reduced the fire, but the attack apparently failed to immediately extinguish the fire.

Alunan even doubted if the gunman might have been burned beyond recognition so as to keep his identity unknown.

In his full post on Facebook, Alunan said,

"The more they answer, the more questions arise.

1. kung ikaw ay isang magnanakaw, hindi ka magpapahalata. stealthy ang kilos mo from start to finish para hindi madetect at mahuli.

2. mukhang alam ng gunman kung saan dumaan. kinulang ang security sa pinasukan nya. dumaan sa stairwell bitbit ang isang rifle at umupo pa. mukhang relaxed at walang kaba.

3. merong bang cctv ang RW? merong bang taong nagmomonitor ngmga cctv consoles? kung meron, dapat nalaman nya kung nag-iisa yung gunman o kung may accomplice.

4. bakit hindi nya binigay ang information tungkol sa gunman, kung solo sya o hindi, para lusubin ng security personnel at the right place and time?

5. umubra ba ang fire alarm at sprinkler systems? paano kumalat ng mabilis ang apoy? nasaan ang mga firefighting at evacuation teams ng RW? ginamit ba nila ang fire extinguishers? bakit hindi nila nailigtas ang mga guests at kapwang empleyado?

6. saan namatay ang mga guests at empleyado? sa kwarto? sa isang malawak na gambling hall? noong paumpisa pa lang ang apoy, bakit sila tumakbo sa exit kung ang binabaril ng gunman ay ang ceiling at ang sahig lamang?

7. nagpakamatay ang gunman o pinatay? kung binaril sya ng security guard at nasugatan, paano nya sinunog at binaril ang kanyang sarili? sunog na sunog ang bangkay beyond recognition. deliberate para hindi sya ma-identify at ma-trace?

8. robbery ba ito? o gawa ng isang sira ulo? o terorista na tinulungan ng iilang kasamahan? inside job pati?

9. anong identity ng gunman? anong edad? background information? RW customer ba? high roller? gunman at bangkay, one and the same?

10. ano ang lessons learned so far about safety and security?

ang daming tanong. kokonting sagot sa kasalukuyan. mag-homework muna tayong lahat."
