Justice will be served to the family of South Korean businessman Jee Ick-joo, Malacañang assured on Sunday as it belatedly expressed disgust over the grisly kidnap-slay case.

“We are outraged by the abduction and slay of a South Korean executive inside Camp Crame,” Ernesto Abella, President Duterte’s spokesperson, said in a statement.
