Batocabe family to work with the President in bringing peace and order to Daraga


After the killing of Ako Bicol Rep. Rodel Batocabe, his family has vowed to keep on fighting not just for justice, but for his hometown.

Batocabe’s son Justin and wife Gertie, who is running for mayor in the slain lawmaker’s stead, visited Malacanang recently to meet with President Duterte.

In a Facebook post, Justin said the President promised to fight for peace and order in Daraga.

Along with cabinet members, they mapped out plans for Daraga and for a more progressive Bicol region, he said.

May the tragic incident lead to positive changes!

“Productive meeting with President Duterte, SAP Bong Go, DILG Sec Ed Año, DOT Sec Berna Romulo-Puyat. The President promised to fight those against peace and order in Daraga.

Together with his cabinet we discussed plans for a greater Daraga and a more progressive Bicol region,” Justin posted.
