Camarines Sur Rep. Rolando Andaya outraged over Batocabe’s killing
Camarines Sur Rep. Rolando Andaya finds it hard to believe that his colleague Ako Bicol Rep. Rodel Batocabe was killed in such a violent manner.
In a Facebook post, Andaya said he was as outraged and as shocked over Batocabe’s killing as other Bicolanos.
This was Batocabe was a man of peace, aside from being a visionary for progress, he said.
He also paid tribute to the legislation that Batocabe pursued, which he said would continue to make an impact on people’s lives.
Andaya also described the people behind Batocabe’s killing as evil, and called for their arrest.
Moreover, the culture of violence must be stopped, he added.
Let’s hope Batocabe’s killing will be the last!
“I share the outrage, the pain and the shock of my fellow Bicolanos over the death of my friend and colleague, Rodel Batocabe. He was a man of peace and a visionary for progress. The laws he had authored and the programs he had initiated will continue to make a difference in the lives of the people he had selflessly served long after he is gone.
That he and his police aide were cowardly assassinated while spreading cheer in this season of forgiveness betrays the evil nature of the perpetrators. The killings must be strongly condemned, swiftly solved, and the culture of violence that stalk our land must be stopped,” Andaya posted.
