By Prince Golez
Malacanang on Tuesday condemned the recent killing of two lawyers and a radio commentator and vowed to deliver justice for the victims.
“We denounce in the strongest possible terms the recent murders of two lawyers in Pangasinan and Rizal,” said Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo in a statement.
“We express our deep sympathies to the families, colleagues, and loved ones left by Attys. Val Crisostomo and Edilberto Golla, Jr.,” Panelo added.
The government, according to him, will leave no stone unturned in bringing their perpetrators to justice.
“We ask authorities to leave no stone unturned in identifying the killers and the perpetrators of these two separate cold-blooded killings. We assure the families of the victims that all those involved will be brought to the bar of justice,” he said.
The chief presidential legal counsel also decried the “senseless” murder of Francisco Patindol, a radio commentator in Butuan City.
“We are closely monitoring the development of the case even as we sympathize with his family,” said Panelo.
