Kin of slain father, minor
seek help of CHR Neg. Or.

The mother of the 4-year-old girl, who was killed during a police operation has sought the help of the Commission on Human Rights in Negros Oriental, accompanied by the parents of her live-in partner, who was also shot dead.

Rowena Lorica, mother of Althea Fhem Barbon, told CHR special field investigator Jesus Cañete that she felt bad about the killing of her child.

She said she had asked the Guihulngan City police why they could not have spared Althea, who was innocent. She said the police should review the rules of engagement if it is true that her live-in partner, Alrick Barbon, indeed pulled a gun upon sensing that he was dealing with a police officer..
