THE FAMILY of former cabinet secretary Leoncio B. Evasco, Jr. asked the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to verify the alleged assassination plot against him. In a letter dated April 1, Mr. Evasco’s wife and three children asked the NBI to identify the supposed assassins contracted and the mastermind. Mr. Evasco is running for governor in Bohol under the Nationalist People’s Coalition-Hugpong ng Pagbabago. “In the event that the said plot is confirmed, we trust that this investigation will result to unmasking of the identities of the assassins contracted for the plot but most especially for the people who contracted them,” the family said in the letter. Security escorts have been provided for Mr. Evasco for the campaign period following the reported plot, but the family said visiting friends and supporters from Davao City observed that there were “unmarked motorcycles occasionally running alongside the service vehicle of the gubernatorial candidate.” The family requested that the probe be conducted by “a special team from the NBI Central Office to remove all doubts and suspicions. We believe in the impartiality and fairness of your Office hence this request.” — Vann Marlo M. Villegas
