Only two months after the political assassination of CPA Regional Elders Desk Coordinator and Bayan Muna-Kalinga Vice Chair Rafael Markus Bangit on June 8 in Isabela province, the Gloria Macapagal Arroyo regime has again pulled the trigger on another political activist, Dr. Constancio “Chandu” Claver, Jr on July 31 at around 6:30 AM. Knowing no mercy, the killers, believed to be military operatives, also targeted Dr. Claver’s 42 -year old wife, Alyce, and their 11-year old daughter, Cassandra by ambushing their van with high powered rifles in Bulanao, Tabuk. While Dr. Claver and Cassandra survived the shooting, Alyce was not able to survive after struggling for life for five hours from multiple gunshot wounds. Dr. Claver, 49 years old, has incurred two gunshot wounds in the left arm and chest. Their daughter Cassandra was deeply traumatized by the incident and is now into complete silence. A bystander, Janice Ewag, a 23 years old student and part of Tanudan tribe, also incurred two gunshot wounds in the hips.
