Another media man succumbed to death.
A photojournalist who’s based in General Santos City was shot dead in front of his wife and kids.
The National Union of Journalist of the Philippines identified the victim as Mario Sy, 53 years old and a resident of Purok Sta. Cruz, Silway, Dadiangas West, General Santos City.
Sy is considered as the 158th member of media who was killed since 1986 and the 18th under the Aquino administration.
Authorities are yet to determine the reason behind Sy’s murder. However, they suspect that his work as a contributor to local tabloid Sapol News had something to do with it.
