“Narinig po ni Presidente ang hiling ng pamilya ni Kieth na hustisya lalo na at nagsabi ang pamilya na binaril ang mga biktima. Nangako ang Pangulo na masusi itong iimbestigahan at pagbabayaran ang may mga sala,” presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said.
“Pwede pong hulihin, litisin at parusahan ang mga taong gumamit ng pasabog na ito kahit saang parte ng daigdig because what they did po was a crime against the international community. Mariin namin itong kinukundena,” he added.
The Communist Party of the Philippines and the New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) have been identified as responsible for the blast.
