Gordon hits recent killings of mayor, prosecutor

By Ernie Reyes

MANILA — Re-electionist Senator Richard J. Gordon today denounced the recent assassination of former Anda, Pangasinan Mayor Aldrin Cerdan and Trece Martires Assistant City Prosecutor Edilbert Mendoza.

Gordon, who chairs the Senate Committee on Justice and Human Rights, decried the growing impunity over the unabated killings in the country where criminals have become brazen in carrying out their nefarious activities.

“We strongly condemn the recent spate of killings and we expect that the Philippine National Police would put a stop of these senseless killings and run after criminal syndicates and their paid assassins,” he said.

“Nakalulungkot ang ganitong klaseng patayan na parang naging mura ang buhay ng tao. Inaasahan ko na ang ating kapulisan ay patuloy naghahanap ng hustisya para sa mga biktima dahil ang pagkitil sa buhay ay hindi kailanman katanggap-tanggap,” he added.

The two killing incidents happened within a day of each other, with the first incident happening on New Year’s Eve and the other one occurring on New Year’s Day.
