Heirs of slain mediamen form group; seek help from gov’t
by Rimaliza Opiñana

The spouses and children of slain media men all over the country formed a group that will serve as support group for the surviving heirs.

The group was formed during a gathering here in Baguio and its members came from as far as Mindanao.

The Samahan ng mga pinaslang na mamamahayag has 12 member families. They are the Agustin from Ilocos Norte, Amoro (Pagadian City), Alcantara (Laguna), Binoya (General Santos City), Binungcal (Bataan), Castillo (Masbate), Cuesta (General Santos City), Damalerio (Pagadian), Esperat (Sultan Kudarat), Guarin (General Santos), Hinolan (Roxas), Martinez (North Cotabato), Mila (northern Samar), Morales (General Santos), Nadura (Masbate), Padrigao (Misamis Oriental), Ramos (Laguna), Reblando ( General Santos), Reyes (Dipolog), Sanchez (La Union), Sumera (National Capital Region), Ureta (Aklan), Velarde (Misamis Occidental), and Vigo families (Kidapawan).

They also elected their respective officers.

Initiated by the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines, the group is initially asking the President to help come up with measures that would stop the killing of journalists, bring justice for all victims of media killings, and advance press freedom.

The group said this could be done by reviewing the investigation and prosecution of media killing cases, by working towards building an investigation and prosecution system that will protect the interest of the victims, avoid statements and actions that infringe on press freedom, build an environment where diversity of views are encouraged, and those who criticize are not killed.

The group also reiterated for Congress to pass the Freedom of Information bill and provide livelihood assistance to families of victims of media killings.
