She was a long-time friend.

Former House Speaker and incumbent Quezon City Rep. Sonny Belmonte voiced his fury and cry for justice after Kapitana Beng Beltran was gunned down by unidentified men.

“I am deeply saddened by her death because apart from being one of the dependable barangay officials of Quezon City, she has also been our family’s long-time and loyal friend,” Belmonte said on Facebook.

“I am urging the authorities to act swiftly and investigate on this matter. This kind of outrageous and violent act has no place in Quezon City.”

The City Council has approved a P5-million bounty for leads to arrest Beltran’s killers.
