Tacloban City (June 9) — Gunshots broke the peaceful atmosphere pervading at the capital town of Naval, Biliran on the early evening of Saturday, June 7, 2008.

Reports coming from the Biliran stated that at least two bodyguards were killed while one was seriously wounded in an ambush on Charlie Ong, the father of Biliran Representative Glenn Chong, just in front of the Chong’s house.

The elder Chong was unhurt because the bodyguards covered him and shoved him inside their house.

The car of the Chongs were taken by the gunmen who left their vehicle in the middle of the road. Another vehicle allegedly used also by the gunmen immediately left the area.

Initial police reports indicated that at least four men, one of them said to be a policeman, fired at the elder Chong and his body guards.

The three wounded bodyguards were brought to the hospital but two of them died; Alberto Parilla, a former village chairman of Rosario Village who was shot in the stomach and Antonio Barcelo who was shot at the back.

Interviewed immediately after the ambush was reported, Region 8 Police Chief Abner Cabalquinto informed that he has immediately ordered the setting up of check points at all the four exit sites.

He added that all the police stations were alerted and that the Biliran Police are already investigating the case and going after the suspects.

Interviewed over the local radio station, Congressman Chong who was in Manila when the ambush took place expressed dismay over the said incidents especially because the bodyguards have been with the family since he was a child.

Early reports also indicated that the bodyguards managed to identify one of the suspects as “Saul” who is allegedly assigned at the Biliran Provincial Police Headquarters. He has been taken under police custody since Sturday night. (PIA 8)
