Four witnesses tagged
politician in killing: PNP
BY GILBERT BAYORAN
Four witnesses have issued affidavits stating that a politician had ordered the killing of Board Member Renato Malabor, Senior Supt. Samuel Nacion, officer-in-charge of the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office, revealed yesterday.
But Nacion said they will wait for the resolution of the Negros Occidental Provincial Prosecutor's Office on the charge of murder on two counts they had filed against the respondents, including a policeman, in connection with the death of Malabor, before initiating their next move.
Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr., who maintained that the assassination of Malabor was politically-motivated, disclosed Friday that there are witnesses who will testify that a politician had ordered the killing of Malabor.
“Let the experts do their jobs.”
This was the reaction yesterday of Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson to what appears to be a delay in the Negros Occidental Prosecutor's resolution of who the mastermind is in the murder of Board Member Renato Malabor and the motive for it.
On Friday, Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said a politician ordered the killing of Malabor but did not name the suspect.
