Philippines investigates murder of leftist politician
font size    

Philippine police authorities said on Monday that they have started an investigation on the killing of a leftist party leader in Salay City, the northern Mindanao on Saturday.

The murderers of Che-che Gandinao, a Bayan Muna (People First) party leader in the region, will not escape the law after "a speedy investigation", the Task Force Usig chief Geary Barias told Xinhua.

Task Force Usig is an investigation body under the Philippine National Investigation assigned by the government to shed light on the causes of mysterious political killings targeting local activists since 2001.

Barias assured the victim's family that Task Force Usig is exerting all its efforts to get the killer. He said investigators will look into all angles, including the possibility that the killing could be related to the murder of Gandiano's father-in-law last month in the same city.

Barias said regional police will extend the necessary assistance to Gandiano's family. The official also said he has recommended the relief of Salay City police chief for inaction to prevent the killing in the precinct.
