Roman ‘immensely shocked’ over Batocabe’s death
Bataan 1st District Representative Geraldine Roman is shocked that her colleague, AKO Bicol Representative Rodel Batocabe, was killed on Saturday, December 22.
“I am immensely shocked and saddened at the tragic killing of my friend and dear colleague at the House of Representatives – Rep. Rodel Batocabe,” said the politiko.
Batocabe and his police escort Orlando Diaz were killed by unidentified gunmen during a gift-giving event in Daraga, Albay, where Batocabe was running for mayor in the 2019 polls.
“I condole with the families of Rep. Batocabe and SPO1 Diaz. Tears fill my eyes as I imagine the pain that they are undergoing right now,” said Roman.
“There is no room for hate and violence in our country! I am praying for swift justice for the victims and their families. How cruel that their lives were taken away just days before Christmas while doing acts of kindness!” she added.
