Targeted! ‘Mabinay 6’ lawyer reportedly ambushed on his way home
Another one bites the dust just a day after the tragic murder of Atty. Benjamin Ramos. KASAMA Sa UP Chairperson Ice Punzalan reported that one of the lawyers of the “Mabinay 6” was killed on his way home.
ALERT! One of the lawyers of the Mabinay 6 (which includes a UP Cebu graduate) was shot dead tonight while on his way home after filing a motion for a political prisoner. SOBRA NA TO! Halatang-halata na ang nangyayari! STOP THE KILLINGS! STOP POLITICAL PERSECUTION! #NeverAgain

Punzalan said that the abogado was shot down after he filed a motion for one of the political prisoners. This abogado is only one of the lawyers that are trying to seek justice for the 6 youth activists tagged as the members of the New People’s Army in Negros.
Karapatan Negros Island and Anakbayan Cebu are yet to name the ambushed lawyer. Punzalan called for the stopping of the killings and persecution against political critics in the country.
Kung hindi journalist, abogado naman!
