Erap orders speedy arrest of cop killers

Troubled by the killing of two Manila policemen in a span of two months, Mayor Joseph Estrada has ordered the Manila Police District to hasten the arrest of their killers.

Estrada said it is the moral duty of the city government to bring justice to the families of PO2 Abdul Jabbar Alonto and PO1 Jorsan Marie Alfariz.

“We owe it to their families. Our law enforcers risk their lives to protect us, to protect the city. In exchange for their sacrifices, we should at least bring closure to these killings and capture those cop killers,” the Manila mayor said.

Alonto, 36, was shot in Paco May 15 by two men on a motorcycle. Prior to that, on March 19, Alfariz was shot 16 times by still unidentified attackers as she was driving her car at the corner of Recto Avenue and Rizal Avenue.

Alonto was a member of the MPD’s Intelligence Division while Alfariz was assigned at the Barbosa Police Station.
