    Statement of Vice President Leni Robredo on the Murder of Rep Rodel Batocabe

    Rep Rodel Batocabe of AKO Bicol Party List, was shot and killed this afternoon in Daraga, Albay by an unidentified gunman. Rodel was a fellow Bicolano, my batchmate in UP Diliman, and a colleague in the 16th Congress. He was smart and eloquent, witty and cheerful, a person who lived life to the fullest. He will be missed, both for his service and his friendship.

    But beyond my personal grief at his passing, is the growing rage at yet another brazen murder, committed in broad daylight, in the middle of a crowd. This cannot, and must not be the new normal; when Filipinos, young and old, rich and poor, are gunned down in cold blood as a matter of course, and where none of us can feel safe.

    This impunity must end.

    I extend my deepest condolences to his wife, Gertie, his children, and his family, and join the call for swift justice to be meted out to those responsible for his murder.
