Aquirre orders probe on killing of Rizal prosecutor

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II has ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to probe the death of another slain Rizal Assistant Provincial Prosecutor Maria Ronatay.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms the evidently premeditated killing of Prosecutor Maria Ronatay,” Aguirre stressed in a statement.

Meanwhile, the Secretary expressed his “solemn condolences to the family of Prosecutor Ronatay.”

Aguirre has issued a department order which told the NBI that it is “directed and granted authority to conduct investigation and case build-up on the death of Assistant Provincial Prosecutor Maria S. Ronatay who was ambushed and gunned-down by riding-in-tandem on 18 July 2017.”

In the same order, he also told NBI Director Dante Gierran “to submit a report to the office of the undersigned and status of the investigation.”

“We need to bring the perpetrators to justice,” he added.
