The late Albuera, Leyte mayor Rolando Espinosa’s burial may be laid to rest next month.  Espinosa was killed by members of the CIDG after allegedly resisting while being served a search warrant inside his detention cell last November 5.

Espinosa’s relative said they are waiting for the three siblings of the mayor and his mother who are based abroad.

Emma Espinosa, sister-in-law of the mayor who serves as spokesperson of the Espinosa family, said he will be buried in a private cemetery in Ormoc City since he is also a native of Leyte.

However, she mentioned that it is not yet clear if Kerwin will be able to attend his father’s wake and burial since he is currently under the custody of the Abu Dhabi police after being arrested for overstaying.
