"Nagbigay na ho ng utos ang hepe po ng ating Philippine National Police na paspasan po at bigyan ho ng nararapat na focus ‘yung dalawa nga hong insidenteng nangyari—isa ho ‘yung kay Enzo Pastor at isa naman po kay Ginoong King doon sa Davao—at nagbigay na ho sila ng direktiba na bantayan po ‘yung imbestigasyon nitong kasong ito," she said in an interview over dzRB Radyo ng Bayan.
