Probe slay of radioman, NBI urged


The Dumaguete City Peace and Order Council recently passed a resolution asking the National Bureau of Investigation to conduct a parallel investigation into the murder of veteran journalist Dindo Generoso, who was killed on his way to work on November 7 in Dumaguete.

City Prosecutor Joseph Arnel Zerna said the NBI has requested for the documents and evidence gathered in relation to the case.

NBI special investigator, Ma. Contesa Lastimoso, who appeared before the Sangguniang Panlungsod on Wednesday, said her office will assist the Philippine National Police in the investigation, if requested, or if the family of the victim would make a similar appeal.

Meanwhile, Negros Oriental Police Provincial Office director, Col. Julian Entoma, joined Governor Roel Degamo and Vice Mayor Alan Gel Cordova in seeking the cooperation of the public, or anyone who may have information that will strengthen the case of Generoso.

Degamo, who lauded the administration of Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo for implementing the CCTV project that greatly helped in the prompt identification of the three suspects, reiterated his instruction to Entoma and city chief-of-police, Lt. Col. Wilfredo Alarcon Jr., to conduct a thorough investigation to give justice not only to the Generoso family but also the people of Dumaguete City who deplored the brutal loss of life, and the many other unsolved killings.

Councilors Lilani Ramon, Michael Bandal, Bernice Elmaco, Karissa Tolentino-Maxino, SK president Lei Marie Danielle Tolentino, Liga ng mga Barangay president Dione Amores, and Edgar Lentorio Jr. also commended the police for their swift action, and condemned the murder of Generoso.*
