Pineda calls for justice for slain San Fernando brgy captain

Pampanga Governor Dennis Pineda asked the police to thoroughly investigate the killing of a barangay captain in San Fernando City, expressing alarm at the spate of election-related violence in the province.

“Nakikiramay po ako sa mga kapamilya, kaibigan at kabaryo ni Kapitan Alvin Mendoza ng Barangay Alasas sa City of San Fernando,” the governor said in a statement.

“I strongly condemn the senseless killing on Mendoza nine days before the May 9, 2022 elections, where he is running as a councilor . I learned he was shot as he drove for his family at past 6 a.m. on Saturday in the vicinity of a residential subdivision,” Pineda said.

“I thanked God that members of his family are safe. I have asked the Philippine National Police (PNP), through PD Col. Alvin Consolacion, to investigate the killing,” he adde.

Pineda said the investigation should conclude with the mastermind and killers identified and charged.

“I am deeply concerned this happened after still unidentified assassins killed Barangay Captain Rainer ‘Balot’ Asban of Sto. Niño in Guagua town last January in a gasoline station there,” he said.

“Former Barangay Concepcion Capt. Rogelio ‘Jonjon’ Salvador, candidate for councilor in San Simon town, was killed in an ambush in November 2021. The attack also killed his driver-cousin Joel Salvador and friend Arnel Caparas,” Pineda added.
