MANILA, Philippines — Daraga Mayor Carlwyn Baldo has called on President Rodrigo Duterte and Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra to look into the pieces of evidence linking him to the murder of Ako Bicol Rep. Rodel Batocabe.

During a press conference on Friday, Baldo asked the two officials to review the physical evidence gathered by authorities in coonection with the death of Batocabe.


“Nananawagan po ako sa ating kinauukulan, lalo’t higit sa lahat sa ating Pangulong Duterte at sa ating Secretary of Justice Menardo Guevarra na bigyan ng pagkakataon basahin at reviewhing mabuti and kasong ito, lalo’t higit ang mga nakalap na physical evidence ng PNP (Philippine National Police) at tukuyin kung sino talaga and mga taong nasa likod nito,” he said.

“Habang lumalapit ang eleksyon ay dumadami ang intelligence report na nagsasabing nais akong patahimikin,” he added.


Earlier, Department of Justice (DOJ) filed charges of murder and attempted murder against Baldo for Batocabe’s killing in December 2018.
