Sorsogon Gov Rodrigueza denounces political ally’s murder


Sorsogon Governor Robert Lee Rodrigueza took to Facebook to denounce the killing of his political ally, 1st District Board Member Peter Ravanilla, in broad daylight Tuesday (April 11).

“On behalf of the Provincial Government of Sorsogon, I strongly denounce this atrocious deed,” Rodrigueza wrote.

“Prior to his election as Board Member, Honorable Ravanilla unselfishly served as Councilor of Sorsogon City for three (3) consecutive terms (2007-2016), in which he proved his worth as a public servant,” he added.

Rodrigueza called Ravanilla’s death “a big loss to the Province of Sorsogon.”

“Our deepest sympathies to the bereaved family of the late BM Ravanilla; may his soul find eternal peace with God.”

Ravanilla, 64, was shot to death in front of his house.
