Lazatin condemns attempt on Agnew’s life-A A +A
Tuesday, October 2, 2012
ANGELES CITY -- Congressman Carmelo “Tarzan” Lazatin has condemned the shooting of businessman Richard Agnew stating that the city police “should get to the bottom of it.”
“Nakakatakot na ang mga nangyayari. Una kinikikilan ang mga negosyante. Hina-harass at sinasara ang mga negosyo nila. Ngayon naman ay tinatangka na nilang patayin,” Lazatin said.
Gunmen reportedly missed their intended target Agnew, who was inside his car near his residence the other day.
Agnew is a known supporter of Lazatin who revealed that the former’s
business in Barangay Balibago was repeatedly closed by authorities for unclear violations.
“This shooting incident will surely cripple the business and tourism in Angeles City, the lawmaker said.
Lazatin also added that police must also take a look onto a possible political angle on the incident.
