MANILA, Philippines – Two employees of a cargo firm were killed yesterday morning by five unidentified gunmen who could have fled with a large amount of cash the victims withdrew from a bank in Greenhills, San Juan City.

 

Roel Prescillas and Fernando M. Pascua were riding a motorcycle when five armed men on two motorcycles blocked their way and fired at them in front of the Max’s Fried Chicken Restaurant .

 

The incident occurred at about 9:30 a.m., shortly after the victims left an Equitable-PCI Bank branch, P02 Rio Tuyay said. The two were pronounced dead on arrival at the nearby Cardinal Santos Medical Center. Prescillas and Pascua were employees of RRJP Cargo Services, Inc., in Annapolis, San Juan. Prescillas was a messenger, while Pascua was operations manager.

 

The bank would not give details on how much money the pair had with them. But sources close to the victims said they could have left the bank with about P1-3 million. Teams have been deployed by the police to track down the suspects.

    Killing and robbery everywhere in the Philippines, for a foreign tourist, where are the low crime rate cities you recommend him to go ?

    Peter,
    I have posted my answer here before, But I do not know why it does not appear here now. Maybe some glitches on the servers or internet connection.

    Anyway, Peter, my suggestion is avoid basilan for the moment. Crimes happens everywhere. Philippine Media is more suceptible in the glaring bad news because it sells. But like any other cities and towns in any of the part of this Globe there is crime.

    Philippine scenery is somewhat glommy in the media but it is not that worse. Crime, whereever you may be could be prevented as long as you don’t invite them. The above news item clearly points out that this is a planned criminal activity. Do not flash your wares in public as commodity to be sold because there will be takers. In the vodpod I have put at the sidebar contains materials on how to prevent crimes. Please watch them.
