On 9 June 2009  Crispin Perez  Jr., a pro-peasant lawyer and radio broadcaster, was shot dead by an unidentified attacker.

 

Crispin Perez Jr., was a radio commentator at the local government-owned FM radio station dwDO in San Jose City, Occidental Mindoro province, in San Jose in the central Philippines . He was the former Occidental Mindoro vice governor (July 1992 to July 1995).

Perez had just come home from his daily morning program Sa Totoo Lang ("In Truth Only") over the local DWDO station, when he was shot to death with a .45 caliber revolver by a lone gunman who pretended to seek his legal advice outside his house in Mindoro Occidental's San Jose city.. The latter fled the crime scene on a motorcycle.

Perez was declared dead on arrival at the local hospital.

 

On July 2. 2009,  two major news websites  reported that a policeman was slapped with murder charges for the killing of   governor Crispin Perez Jr.  Darwin R. Quimoyog  assigned at the Magsaysay police station in Mindoro Occidental, was positively identified by the victim’s wife, Irene Sungao-Perez, as the one who shot her husband twice last June 9 in San Jose town. The suspect was placed under the custody of Police Regional Office 4-B-MIMAROPA at Camp Eugenio Navarro in Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro.

 
The media freedom center said 78 journalists have been killed in the line of duty since democracy was restored in the Philippines after the ouster of dictator Ferdinand Marcos in 1986.

 

The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists has cited the Philippines as one of 14 countries where violence against the press often goes unsolved and unpunished. Others on the list are Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Iraq, Brazil, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Colombia, Afghanistan, Nepal, Russia, Mexico, Bangladesh and India
