Malacañang on Wednesday condemned the killing of the chief lawyer of the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor).

Lawyer Frederic Anthony Santos, who was suspended in September 2019 for six months due to the Good Conduct Time Allowance controversy, was shot dead by unknown assailants at around 2 p.m. today in Barangay Poblacion in Muntinlupa City.

“We condemn any act of violence. Palaging kaming ganyan. As a matter of policy, we condemn a transgressions of law, any violation inflicted against any person, any murder, we condemn that,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo told reporters.

Panelo pointed out that Santos’ ambush won’t stop the government from

ridding the agency of corruption.

“It has nothing to do with the campaign against corruption because we don’t know exactly whether or not this is a personal case. Meaning, it might be retaliation from some personal wrongdoing that he has committed,” according to him.

“Even assuming that it was done in relation to whatever he has done for this government, still, as I said earlier, it will not thwart or stop the campaign against corruption because people there will always be coming out to tell the truth,” he added.
