Peace and Order Meeting to Address Samar Killings
Sunday, February 22, 2015
TACLOBAN CITY — The Provincial Government of Samar is positive that the Regional Peace and Order Council (RPOC) meeting slated in March will resolve the series of killings in Calbayog City.
Samar Governor Sharee Ann Tan-de los Santos, who asked for the RPOC members to convene, said she is alarmed with the shooting incidents in Calbayog that setback efforts to draw investments in the province.
In December 2014, a series of killing perpetuated by riding-in-tandem suspects has been reported. Most victims are village officials in Calbayog.
Philippine National Police (PNP) Regional Director Asher Dolina also said that based on their initial findings, the killings were politically motivated and some are rooted on personal grudge.
My main concern is to address these killings with help from the police, the military and the local chief executives who are RPOC members,” Tan-de los Santos said.
