Reyes death should not delay quest for truth and accountability – Kabataan


MANILA, Philippines – Kabataan Party-list Representative Raymond ‘Mong’ Palatino of today expressed his condolences to the family and friends of former Secretary Angelo Reyes with the caveat that the incident should not delay the investigation on the corruption cases involving Reyes himself and top government officials especially from the military.

“It is unfortunate that Reyes passed away for he could have been a vessel in solving these corruption cases. While we condole with his family and friends, I sincerely hope that the people’s quest for truth and justice will not be delayed by this sad incident,” Palatino said.

He furthered that Reyes’ death should in fact propel the investigation to deepen “since we have lost a crucial person involved in these cases. In other words, we have to work harder to put the pieces of puzzle together since we sadly won’t be hearing any further from Reyes. In retrospect, he could have just faced the issue head-on and possibly played a vital role in shedding light on this whole affair.”

Reyes was under fire for the spate of corruption cases divulged by whistle-blowers George Rabusa and Heidi Mendoza. He was supposed to attend a House hearing today on the corruption cases prior to his death. Early reports said that he committed suicide.

“Without a doubt, the House hearing today is tinged by the death of Reyes. However, it will be more tragic if the corruption cases will remain unsolved and those responsible will not be put to justice. I urge my fellow government officials to be more determined in putting an end to corruption. It is the people’s welfare and interest that is at stake here,” Palatino said.
