PNP, Comelec urged: Investigate ambush of Namfrel volunteer

National Movement for Free Elections (Namfrel) chairman Edward Go is asking the Commission on Elections and the Philippine National Police “to commit its best resources to the investigation and prosecution of the persons responsible” on the ambush of their volunteer in Abra.

Namfrel volunteer Ronable Alinday was injured during the ambush at Lagayan, Abra, a day before election day.

"The initial investigation led us to believe that the ambush, audaciously carried out even if the victims were escorted by PNP personnel, was conducted by private armed groups," said Go in a press conference.
