Investigate death of UP botanist, House urged
TWO congressmen of Bayan Muna party-list yesterday urged the House of Representatives to investigate the killing of Leonardo Co, a renowned plant taxonomist and ethno-botanist, and his two companions last Nov. 15.
Reps. Teddy Casiño and Neri Colmenares expressed dismay over the continuing extra-judicial killings victimizing suspected rebels despite the change in the administration.
They said such investigation is warranted in order for Congress to craft measures and make recommendations to put a stop to the killings.
The survivors said that there was no crossfire. D’Jay Lazaro
