Mahigpit na kinokondena ng ating Pangulong Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. ang pagpatay sa broadcaster na si Juan Jumalon, o mas kilala bilang si “Johnny Walker” nitong Linggo ng umaga. Ang ganitong walang kabihasnang pag-atake sa ating mamamahayag ay walang lugar sa isang demokratikong bansa.

Inatasan ng ating Pangulo ang Philippine National Police (PNP) na magsagawa ng masusing imbestigasyon upang mahuli at mapanagot ang sino mang nasa likod ng karumaldumal na krimeng ito.

Pinapaabot namin ang pakikiramay ng buong administrasyon sa pangunguna ng ating Pangulo sa pamilya at mga kaanak ni Johnny Walker. Makakaasa kayo ng aming masusing pagtutok upang mabigyan ng hustisya ang kanyang pagpaslang.
