NPC decries harassment over Pangasinan murder

By Rey E. Requejo | Feb. 15, 2013 at 12:01am
The Nationalist People’s Coalition has denounced its political rivals for resorting to “political harassment and machinations” after the National Bureau of Investigation filed a complaint for murder against its party stalwarts -- Pangasinan Governor Amado Espino Jr. and Pangasinan 1st District Rep. Jesus Celeste -- for the death of Infanta Mayor Ruperto Martinez.

“We are very dismayed over these petty tactics against our candidate. It is becoming too obvious to the public that these are machinations for their own political interests,” NPC provincial chairman and former Pangasinan Rep. Mark Cojuangco said.

Abono party-list chairman Rosendo So described the murder charges as “impossible and improbable”, even as he called on Justice Secretary Leila de Lima to order the NBI to conduct a re-investigation of the allegation against   Espino and Celeste immediately.

“Martinez is an ally of Governor Espino and  Congressman Celeste. Mayor Martinez consistently delivered votes to the NPC. It is impossible for his allies to order his murder?,” So asked.

“The NBI must re-investigate this case. This is not a joke. If they are training their guns on Gov. Espino, they will allow the real mastermind to get away and justice will not be served,” So said.
