Mayor Loot’s mistahs condemn assassination attempt
The Philippine Military Academy Sandigan ’82 Association Inc. (PSAI), in a statement on May 15, condemned the assassination attempt on their mistah Daanbantayan Mayor Vicente Loot.
The Cebu politiko survived an ambush attempt by still unidentified men on May 13 at the New Maya Port in Daanbantayan.
“The PSAI denounces in no uncertain terms this cowardly attack on their constitutionally protected rights and the safety of one of their members and his family,” PSAI said.
The PSAI said the assault has “traumatized” the Loot family for life.
This defiant display of armed aggression when the gun ban is strictly imposed by the PNP cannot be countenanced as it is an affront to peace-loving citizens about to participate in the democratic process of selecting their barangay elective officials,” PSAI said.
