Lacson eyes security measures for widow of cop allegedly ordered slain by Supt Marcos: Bigyan ng proteksyon
Sen. Panfilo Lacson, would like to give a temporary protection on the widow of a police officer who claimed that her husband was killed in an ambushed last September 3 by the order of CIDG-8 head Superintendent Marvin Marcos.
Sunday, December 3, in an interview of DZBB radio, Lacson said that Mylene Son, the widow of Chief Inspector Jesus Son, had indicated her willingness to testify.
“Pwede sa Senado (ang magbigay ng security), on a temporary basis. Depende kung pahayag niya makatulong sa imbestigasyon. Pwede i-request sa OSAA (Senate Office of the Sergeant At Arms) na momentarily bigyan ng protection,” he said.
Lacson said that if the testimony of Mylene can be used as a material, she can be referred to the government’s Witness Protection Program.
He also said that Mrs. Son initially wanted to testify, but not sure if she will continue to do so because she fears for her life.
“Noong una nagpahayag gusto magtestify pero ngayon di malinaw kung darating o hindi kasi nagpasabi natatakot pamilya niya naroon ang protection maibigay sa kanila. Takot na takot sila kay Marcos,” he said.
Mrs. Son admitted that her husband was ordered by Marcos to kill Mayor Espinosa for P500,000 but Son did not comply.
Meanwhile, Lacson said the lifting of restrictive custody on Marcos and company could also mean at least 20 prospective witnesses who executed their affidavits may be cowed into not testifying.
“Sa akin medyo hindi na kappa-patawad yan, mahirap intindihin naroon ang testigo walang kalaban-laban, I think 20-plus ang nag-execute ng affidavit, jail guard, inmate. Walang kalabanlaban ang inmate kasi kung pasukin uli yan,” he said.
