The Presidential Task Force on Media Security (PTFOMS) has ordered the chief of the Eastern Police District to seek out who’s behind the killing of Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez’s communications guide, Michael Marasigan.
In an announcement Friday (August four), PTFOMS Executive Director Undersecretary Joel Egco stated he informed EPD Director Chief Superintendent Romulo Sapitula “to leave no stone unturned in finding out who are the perpetrators behind this dastardly attack.”
“While it is yet to be confirmed if this incident falls under the mandate of the Task Force in relation to the Administrative Order No. 1 (AO1) of Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte in protecting the life, liberty and security of Media Workers, there is a possibility that the killing may be related to Marasigan’s previous work as a journalist,” Egco stated.
Marasigan, a former editor of Business World, and his brother Christopher was gunned down by males on board a bike Thursday (August three) in San Juan.
The Marasigans had been on board their car when the gunmen fired at them.
Egco stated the duty pressure will proceed to watch the progress of the investigation and supply the mandatory authorized help concerning Marasigan’s case.
