The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines-Masbate Chapter condemns the killing of a radio commentator in Sorsogon.
According to Norman Laurio, Chairman of NUJP-Masbate, the group will not stop in seeking justice and criticizing the Aquino administration due to its lack of serious moves to end media killings.
Even though the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Philippine National Police (PNP) have already created a Task Force that will focus on the investigation of the recent media killings, Laurio said that media killing still continues.
The slain media man, Teodoro Escanilla was shot by two armed men in his house in Brgy. Tagdon, Barcelona, Sorsogon last August 20.
Escanilla, 56,was a block timer in Radyo Natin- Sorsogon and Spokesperson of Karapatan and Provincial Chairman of Anakpawis.
