Senator Mar Roxas condemned the attack on Biliran Rep. Glenn A. Chong's father on Saturday evening, resulting in the death of two security escorts.

"We condemn this attack on Rep. Chong's father in the strongest terms. It is an affront to democracy, the rule of law and our civilized ways of living," the Liberal Party President said.

According to news reports, four armed men fired their guns at Charlie Chong when he was just about to enter his house after arriving from work. Two of his security escorts died in the assault.

"I call on the Department of Interior and Local Governments to step in and order an immediate investigation into this despicable act of violence," Roxas said.

He also expressed concern over the safety of the Chong family while the perpetrators remain unidentified.

Rep. Chong, 32, is a Liberal Party stalwart and a first-term congressman. His father was able to survive the ambush unhurt.
