Malacañang has ordered the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Philippine National Police to thoroughly investigate the murder of a former Cebu City prosecutor who was ambushed last week.

“We are outraged by the brutal and brazen ambush of former Cebu City Assistant Prosecutor Mary Ann Castro,” presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said on Sunday.

Castro was shot five times by a motorcycle-riding gunman.
