TANAUAN, Philippines — Angeline Halili, daughter of slain Tanauan City Mayor Antonio Halili openly asked President Rodrigo Duterte to help them in getting justice.
In an interview with reporters at the wake of her father, Angeline appealed to the president to help clear the name of his father on his alleged involvement in illegal drugs.
"Give us justice. I appeal to the president na linisin ang pangalan ng tatay ko at bigyan ng hustisya ang pagkamatay niya. Inaasahan ka namin presidente. Ikaw ang hinihintay kong makarating dito," Angeline said.
She also reacted to the statement of Sen. Ping Lacson that the assasination of his father is government initiated.
"This is one of the greatest fears that we have to face is sana naman hindi totoo. Isipin mo naman kung ang pamilya mo are against a very high and a very strong government, mataas ang posisyon eh matakot ka na. You’d be helpless, but not me, I will not feel helpless, all the more I will fight back," the daughter of the slain mayor said.
Angeline said they are still waiting for the final result of the investigation conducted by the Philippine National Police and the National Bureau of Investigation.
"Everyone’s a suspect, may motive eh. Kung sino ang mga may motive, who’s been opposing my father, kumokontra at naninira sa father ko, they’re all suspects," she said.
Tanauan City Public.Information officer Gerry Laresma downplayed the anggle of inside job.
"Laging umaatend ng flag raising ceremony si mayor as posted in our FB page kaya hindi kailangan ng inside job para malaman kung aatend sya sa Monday morning ceremony" Laresma said.
Halili will be laid to rest on Sunday at Loyola Memorial Park in Barangay Santor, Tanauan, Batangas.
