THE Cebu Police Provincial Office was tasked to conduct a thorough investigation into the killing of radio commentator Reynante “Rey” Cortes.

Initial investigation showed that Cortes was shot to death on Thursday, July 22, by a still unidentified gunman in front of the station DYRB Radyo Pilipino along N. Bacalso Avenue in Barangay Mambaling, Cebu City.

“Walang puwang lalo na sa isang demokrasyang bansa ang pananakot, pananakit at pagpatay sa mga taong tinuturing na simbolo ng malayang pagpapahayag,” said Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Gen. Guillermo Eleazar.

Nakikiisa tayo sa panawagan ng hustisya sa pagpaslang sa Cebu radio commentator na si Renante “Rey” Cortes at inutos ko na ang pagbuo ng Special Investigation Task Group upang mapabilis ang pag-iimbestiga at pagdakip sa mga taong may kagagawan nito,” he added.

The PNP Chief assured that the police will look into all possible angles in the incident, including threats that the victim may have received.

Police investigators are coordinating with Cortes’ family, friends, and colleagues for information that could shed light on the incident, said PGen. Eleazar.

Nananawagan tayo sa mga maaaring makapagbigay ng impormasyon sa kasong ito, makipagtulungan kayo sa mga awtoridad upang agarang maresolba at mabigyan ng hustisya ang pagkamatay ni Cortes,” he added.
