Senate urges quick resolution of trader’s killing
Twenty-one out of 23 senators on Monday urged the Philippine National Police (PNP) to quickly resolve the “brutal and senseless” killing of businessman Dominic Sytin and hold the perpetrators accountable.
In filing Senate Resolution No. 962, the senators condemned “in the strongest sense” the killing of Sytin and called on the PNP and other law enforcement agencies “to use the full force of the law to bring justice” to the slain businessman as well as the “other victims of similar heinous crimes” to address the “culture of impunity” in the country.
The 51-year-old Sytin was shot dead last Nov. 28 outside Lighthouse Marina Resort in Subic Bay Freeport Zone.
Many demanded the swift arrest of the killer.
Just recently, authorities released an artist’s sketch of the assailant. /atm
