‘Leave no stone unturned,’ Guevarra tells NBI on lawyer’s slay
Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra on Thursday directed the National Bureau of Investigation to leave no stone unturned in its parallel investigation into the murder of a human rights lawyer in Kabankalan, Negros Occidental recently.
This, even as the NBI has already submitted its progress report to the Department of Justice related to the killing of Atty. Benjamin Ramos.
“The NBI has submitted a progress report. I directed them to investigate more deeply,” Guevarra told reporters in a SMS.
Ramos was shot dead by motorcycle-riding men while taking a break after he had just finished a legal paper for another of his many pro bono clients.
Ramos was the 34th lawyer killed during the Duterte administration.
