Antequera officials have appealed to Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Dir. Gen. Ronald dela Rosa, a former resident of the town, to hasten the arrest of the suspects in the killing of Atty. Mia Mascarinas-Green.
The Antequera Sangguniang Bayan (SB) led by Vice Mayor Simon Leo Jadulco passed a resolution urging dela Rosa to assist in the arrest of Lloyd Gonzaga and Romarico Benegian who have been tagged as the alleged killers of Mascarinas-Green.
The appeal, cited in SB Resolution Number 2017-110, was made through a motion passed during the municipal legislative body’s regular session on May 15, 2017.
Mascarinas-Green who was a native of Antequera was killed at the corner of Zamora and JA Clarin Streets in Barangay Dao, Tagbilaran City on February 15, 2017.
Meanwhile, the Bohol Provincial Board has also publicly called on law enforcement agencies to speed up the arrest of the primary suspects in the lawyer’s murder.
Earlier, a warrant for the arrest of Gonzaga, Benegian and unidentified suspects was issued by Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 1.
The warrant was issued by Judge Lindecita Arcamo, presiding judge of RTC Branch 1, on May 22, 2017. (Rey Tutas)
