Statement of Secretary of Justice Vitaliano N. Aguirre II on the 7th Anniversary of the Maguindanao Massacre


Posted: 23 November 2016


On behalf of the whole DOJ Family, we join the families of the victims of the Maguindanao Massacre in prayer and solemn commemoration of that dastardly act that claimed the lives of innocents.

We pray not only for the eternal repose of the souls of the deceased but we also pray that those who are left behind will not only get the justice that they deserve but that they may find the grace to pick up the shattered pieces of their lives.

The Department of Justice reiterates its commitment in the quest for the elusive justice of the families of the victims. We will do all that we can to make the  wheels of justice turn faster not only in this case but in other cases.

I enjoin everyone in the DOJ to join us in praying for the victims, their families and that justice may rightfully be served.
