“The filing of murder cases by the NBI against PMSgt. Daniel Florendo Jr, and four other police trainees, in connection with the killing of former Corporal Winston Ragos, is a major step towards justice for our fallen hero, who has given the best years of his life in service to the country,” Philippine Army commanding general Gilbert Gapay said in a statement.
“Cases of perjury and tampering with evidence were likewise filed against policemen involved in the shooting incident,” he added.
The Army chief added that they expect “indictment on all the cases filed and strongly believes that truth will prevail and justice will be served.”
“May this initial development bring comfort to his family, and continue to raise awareness on mental health, and the plight of our soldiers who bear invisible scars of war,” he said.
