Massacred lawyer’s kin
asking PNoy for justice
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
The family of one of the Negrense victims of the Maguindanao massacre is asking President Benigno Aquino III to help ensure the speedy resolution of the case since three years have already passed and they have yet to attain justice.
Andrea Jayme, the younger sister of human rights lawyer Connie Brizuela, who was the legal counsel of Maguindanao Gov. Esmael “Toto” Mangudadatu, joined about 30 members of Gabriela-Negros and Karapatan in a protest at the marker of the Fallen Journalists at the Bacolod public plaza yesterday, by offering red roses tied with black ribbons.
She later joined the members of the Bacolod media, led by the Negros Press Club and the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkasters sa Pilipinas, at a torch and candle-lighting ceremony at the plaza at 7 p.m.
