Abby Binay orders Makati police chief: Resolve shooting of Junjun’s aide ASAP
Makati mayor Abby Binay has directed the city police chief to exert all efforts to immediately resolve the shooting involving the aide of her brother, former mayor Junjun Binay.
In a statement Friday, Abby said she has also ordered barangay captains all over Makati to cooperate with the police and turn over surveillance camera footage and other materials that will help in their investigation.
“Tahimik at payapa kami dito sa Makati. Hindi ako papayag na sirain ito ng mga gustong manggulo sa aming lungsod,” she said.
Unidentified men on board a motorcycle shot Monaliza Bernardo, 44, as she was about to enter her home in Olympia Village Thursday night.
She remains in critical condition at the Makati Medical Center after sustaining gunshot wounds on her right hand and abdomen.
Police recovered an empty shell of a .45 pistol at the crime scene. Witnesses said the assailants fled towards South Avenue before turning left on Barasoain Street.
Abby is running for re-election against Junjun, who is seeking a return to the City Hall.
Their father, former Vice President Jejomar Binay, who is running for congressman in Makati’s first district, has offered a P1-million reward for information that will lead to the arrest of Bernardo’s shooters.
