Probe syndicates behind COMELEC slays

Senator Richard Gordon raised the possibility of a criminal syndicate operating with the poll body, noting the “gangland style of killing of” Dalaig.

“He was apparently shot through the heart and killed by a lone gunman as he walked across the Hyatt Hotel parking lot. In his possession was P300,000 in cash,” Gordon said.

“This certainly raises a lot of questions and one question I’ve heard was: Is there a mafia operating in the Comelec?”

Gordon, who chairs the Senate committee on constitutional amendments and revision of codes and laws, also demanded the immediate investigation and closure of Dalaig’s murder and that of Del Rosario, who was shot by a lone gunman while he was attending a drinking session at a house in General Trias, Cavite.

“How many of our election officials have been killed and what were the circumstances surrounding their killings?” Gordon asked.

Gordon hopedthe Automation Elections Law, which would make for less human control over poll results, will stop election-related killings.

“We don’t know if the law can still be implemented, but we will certainly insist that it gets implemented in 2010 if only to avoid more killings and yet another presidency assailed with allegations of wholesale electoral fraud,” he said.
