Yesterday, September 6, 2017 at 3:30 p.m. I joined President Duterte and PAO Chief Persida Acosta at the Malago Clubhouse in meeting the parents and sister of the slain Karl Angelo Arnaiz.

I set up the meeting and got confirmation from the parents of Karl Arnaiz late in the evening of April 5, 2017, Tuesday. My intention for setting up the meeting was for the family of Karl Arnaiz to be re-assured by no less than President Duterte himself that the death of their son will receive justice.

President Duterte’s order was very clear, the NBI shall be the lead agency in the conduct of the investigation. President Duterte further said that Karl’s family can trust and rely on the NBI.
