IBP-Pampanga chapter condemns attack on provincial legal officer

The Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP)-Pampanga chapter has called for swift justice following the attack on provincial legal officer and lawyer Gerome Tubig, one of its members.

Tubig, also the provincial legal officer of Pampanga, survived an ambush by gunmen on Monday morning in San Fernando City, the motive for which remained unknown.

“Life is sacred and inviolable. Any form of violence has no place under the regime of law, peace and democracy,” IBP-Pampanga said in a statement.

“Our justice system shall be badly shaken and endangered if lawyers and those in the administration of justice are subject to malicious attacks, threats and other physical harms,” the group said.

“We are praying for the healing and speedy recovery of Atty. Tubig, for his family and loved ones. Let the rule of law be observed at all times and let justice be served swiftly!” IBP-Pampanga said.
