New York, December 26, 2007 — The Philippine government today announced that it has identified a witness in the slaying of radio broadcaster Ferdinand Lintuan on Monday. The Committee to Protect Journalists calls on President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to ensure that the case is aggressively pursued in order to bring Lintuan’s attackers to justice.
According to the National Union of Journalists, Philippines (NUJP), and local media reports, Jessie Ticar surrendered to police on Tuesday, after he learned that fellow suspect Amador Raz was captured by police on November 26.
