Dumaguete City Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo has vowed to pursue the murder case of broadcaster Dindo Generoso, and said he will not rest until “the mastermind is unmasked”.
He issued the statement during the requiem mass Saturday for Generoso, 69, who was laid to rest at a memorial park in the city.
Remollo spoke to mourners, who included Negros Oriental Governor Roel Degamo, Dumaguete Vice Mayor Alan Gel Cordova, provincial police director Col. Julian Entoma, family members, and supporters at the Mary Immaculate Church.
Meanwhile, Entoma said the alleged gunman, Police Corporal Roger Rubio, has returned from Manila and is now “restricted to camp” for an administrative complaint against him for allegedly being absent without official leave, and for neglect of duty.
On Friday, the Presidential Task Force on Media Security held a press conference in Manila announcing the arrest of Rubio.
Before his departure for Manila Thursday afternoon escorted by two police officers, including OIC Dumaguete police chief, Lt. Col. Wilfredo Alarcon, Rubio denied any involvement in Generoso’s slay.
As this developed, further backtracking of the closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage from the city government showed that in the morning of Nov. 7, the day when Generoso was shot dead, one of the suspects was seen getting in and out of the Mitsubishi Strada silver pickup truck.
The man was seen walking along the boulevard, wearing a jersey shirt, short pants, and slippers, and was talking to two others who disembarked from a brown car in front of a restobar at Rizal Boulevard.*
