Honasan: ‘Public support needed by authorities to arrest Ecleo’

/ 08:13 AM April 21, 2012

SEN. Gregorio Honasan admitted yesterday that the law enforcers need the full support from the public to arrest parricide convict Rep. Ruben Ecleo Jr. of Dinagat island, Surigao del Norte.

Ecleo, the supreme master of the Philippine Benevolent Missionary Association, was convicted by a Cebu City Regional Trial Court of parricide for the murder of his wife, Alona Bacolod, ten years ago.

“I am not blaming the police nor the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) for their failure to catch Ecleo, but I am confident that the law enforcers will bring the fugitive to justice,” Sen. Honasan said.

“Though it created a bad image to the public, we have to trust our law enforcers and the justice system in the Philippines,” he added.
