Jail anyone who violates the law, most specially my own relatives - Dureza

Manila (15 August) -- Press Secretary Jesus Dureza stressed that nobody is above the law, not even his relatives who must be meted appropriate punishment if they violate the law.

"I hope they quickly send to jail anyone who violates the law, most specially my own relatives," Dureza said when asked for reaction on an incident in Davao City where his nephew was arrested for allegedly firing a 9-mm pistol and engaging police in a car chase.

Radio reports have it that John Paul Dureza, said to be the nephew of Secretary Dureza faces charges of indiscriminate firing, and possible charges of physical injury after a man was hit by a stray bullet from the shooting.

Initial investigation showed that John Paul Dureza fired his weapon along Florentino Torres St. in Davao City before dawn, prompting neighbors to seek police assistance.

The report added that he even tried to elude police, engaging them in a chase that ended when he was cornered at the Ecoland Subdivision.

A 9-mm pistol he allegedly used in the shooting was recovered from him.

He admitted firing his pistol and apologized, claiming he had some personal problems, the report said. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
