THE Free Legal Assistance Group (Flag) 7 condemns in the strongest possible terms the murder of lawyer Jonnah John Ungab in Cebu City on Feb. 19, 2018.
The brutal murder of a practicing lawyer Jonnah John Ungab is not only a crime against the victim and against his family but also a direct assault on the rule of law and our justice system.
As Flag extends its heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved widow Pearl Ungab and her children, it calls on the police and the National Bureau of Investigation to immediately solve the crime, and to arrest and prosecute the criminals.
Flag also calls on President Rodrigo Duterte to stop all extra-judicial killings and summary executions that have spawned a culture of impunity in our society.
Done in Cebu City, this 20th day of February, in the year of Lord Two Thousand and Eighteen.--Flag 7
