THE In­ter-Agency Anti-Ar­son Task Force (IAAATF), the body formed to con­duct probe on the fire in­ci­dent that hit NCCC Mall Davao, said that the re­sult of in­ves­ti­ga­tion of the for­eign foren­sic ex­perts will not af­fect the re­sult of their ini­tial find­ings.

Fire Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent Jerry Can­dido said that al­though the mall man­age­ment hired their in­ves­ti­ga­tor to con­duct an in­de­pen­dent in­ves­ti­ga­tion on the fire in­ci­dent, still, the BFP in­ves­ti­ga­tion would still pre­vail in case there is con­flict.

"It has no bear­ing be­cause it is our re­port that shall pre­vail. Kung meron si­lang bago doon na we think mag­a­mit baka pwde nam­ing i-in­clude sa am­ing re­port kung hindi pa na­fi­nal­ize. In case of con­flict, well again wala na­man prob­lema dahil ang amin pa ring re­port yong mag pre­vail kasi kami na­man po na mag file ng ap­pro­pri­ate cases sa la­hat ng in­volve," Can­dido said.

The for­eign ex­perts are based in Wash­ing­ton DC, United States whom Can­dido iden­ti­fied as James M. Lord, Se­nior Fire & foren­sic en­gi­neer and Stephen M. Hill, Se­nior Fire Pro­tec­tion En­gi­neer from Jensen Hughes.
