Statement of Senate President Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III on the Davao blast

I condemn in the strongest possible terms the dastardly and cowardly attack last night against the peace-loving people of Davao City. There is no excuse for hurting and killing civilians who were simply enjoying a night out with friends and family.

My prayers are with the victims of the terrorist attack and their families. Justice must be served and the Senate will be supportive in achieving this Justice. The Police should be supported in solving this crime so that they can bring the perpetrators to Justice.

All of us should help and find ways to improve our security measures in order to forestall a similar event in the future.
