DepEd condemns killing of Zambo del Sur education exec

THE Department of Education (DepEd) condemned Tuesday the killing of the newly installed Zamboanga del Sur DepEd director Malcolm Borongan.

"We, at DepEd, condemn all forms of violence especially as they occur in schools. We maintain that schools are zones of peace where the safety and well-being of students, teachers, and personnel are of utmost importance," said Education Secretary Leonor Briones.

Borongan was gunned down by unidentified motorcycle-riding suspects on Monday evening at the teacher’s center in San Jose Heights Pagadian City while having his Thanksgiving party for the promotion.

Briones said she directed DepEd regional director Isabelita Borres to monitor the investigation being conducted by the police on the case and to immediately release the monetary benefits for the victim's family.

She also urged the local police to "prudently" identify and arrest the suspects responsible for the crime.

Pagadian police chief Kiram Jimlani said they are conducting follow-up operations for the arrest of the suspect. (SunStar Philippines)
