The Department of Justice calls on law enforcement authorities to investigate the ambush of Oriental Mindoro prosecutor Josephine Olivar

MANILA, Philippines – Oriental Mindoro provincial prosecutor Josephine Olivar was ambushed at her home on Monday, June 10.

A police report said Olivar “was shot by still unidentified perpetrator/s” as she was entering her home in Barangay Bayanan 1, Calapan City.

Olivar was immediately rushed to the MMG Hospital for treatment as the suspect fled from the scene.

In a statement, Department of Justice Undersecretary Markk Perete said Olivar sustained 5 gunshot wounds – 2 hitting her in the head and 3 in her body.

The gunshots to her head have prompted doctors to conduct a computed tomography (CT), Perete added.

“The Department calls on our law enforcement authorities to investigate this incident that those responsible may be held to account before the law,” Perete said. – Rappler.com
