The impunity in the killing of suspended Bureau of Corrections legal chief Frederic Anthony Santos should be a big challenge to law enforcement agencies, Sen. Panfilo Lacson said Thursday.

Lacson, a former Philippine National Police chief, also lamented how cheap life has become in the course of the government’s war on drugs.

“It is another big challenge to law enforcement agencies, including the Philippine National Police and National Bureau of Investigation, to get to the bottom of the case,” he said in a statement.

“The manner in which Santos was killed shows how cheap life has become in the government’s war on drugs, be it stage-managed or perpetrated by drug syndicates,” he added.

Santos was gunned down in an ambush outside his daughter’s school in Muntinlupa City. He had been invited as a resource person in the Senate probe on irregularities in the BuCor.

While the PNP started its probe into the incident immediately after the killing, the Department of Justice ordered the NBI to conduct its own probe on Thursday.

Initially hampering the probe was that the closed-circuit television cameras in the area where the ambush occurred were not working.

“Either way, it is on the law enforcement agencies to bear the burden of finding the solution to this impunity,” Lacson noted.
