Give massacre victims justice,
Negros, Bacolod officials call

Negros Occidental and Bacolod City officials, outraged over the massacre of 57 in Maguindanao Monday, three of whom were from Negros Occidental, yesterday joined calls for the immediate arrest of the perpetrators.

“The victims of the terrible Maguindanao massacre should be given swift justice,” Negros Occidental Gov. Isidro Zayco said.

Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia said there are no words strong enough to describe the dastardly and inhuman act that took the lives of 52 in Maguindanao and the entire city of Bacolod condemns it in the strongest possible terms. moremoremore

Brizuela, a 56-year-old lawyer and grandmother, who was from Bacolod City , was among the 57 persons killed in a massacre in Maguindanao Monday. moremoremore
