THE DEPARTMENT of Justice (DoJ) has ordered the respondents in the complaint over the killing of Quezon City Deputy City Prosecutor Rogelio A. Velasco last May 11, 2018 to submit their manifestation within five days over the closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage showing the moments before the crime. Among the respondents are Senior Police Officer (SPO) 2 Rodante S. Lalimarmo, PO3 Arthur Y. Lucy, and PO1 Jose L. Mercado. The CCTV footage showed that Mr. Velasco was followed by a vehicle and a motorcycle, then his car was blocked by another vehicle from which unidentified gunmen alighted and shot at his direction. The crime took place in front of a restaurant along Don Antonio St. in Barangay Holy Spirit, Quezon City. Mr. Velasco was brought to the East Avenue Medical Center but was declared dead on arrival. The DoJ also asked the legal counsel for Mr. Velasco to submit their reply to the manifestation of the respondents within five days upon its receipt. — Vann Marlo M. Villegas
