Palace condemns bombing in Ombudsman building in Q.C.

Manila (30 June) -- Malacaņang has condemned the bombing at the Office of the Ombudsman (OMB) building on Agham Road in North Triangle, Quezon City at dawn Sunday.

Deputy Presidential Spokesman Anthony Golez said over state-run DZRB that Malacaņang would "not allow such incidents to happen, especially in Metro Manila."

Golez said "The Philippine National Police (PNP) will lead in the investigation and solve the case as soon as possible to arrest and bring to justice whoever is behind this attack," he said. "We are a peaceful people and do not believe or condone such violence."

Witnesses told police investigators that two unidentified men in a vehicle stopped near the gate of the OMB compound at around 5 a.m. and hurled the improvised explosive device inside before fleeing the scene.

The explosion damaged parts of a water treatment tank, glass windows on the second floor, and a shuttle bus.

Quezon City police have yet to determine the motive behind the bombing.

The Explosive and Ordnance Division of the Quezon City police recovered a time fuse, a blasting cap, electrical tape, and matchsticks from the blast site.

Assistant Ombudsman Mark Jalandoni said in a report that the explosion was strong enough to damage some property at the OMB's central office.

Bomb experts of the National Bureau of Investigation are helping the QCPD-EOD and its Scene of the Crime Operatives personnel in the investigation. (OPS/PIA) [top]
