InterAksyon.com reports that Bayan Muna party-list Representatives Neri Colmenares and Teddy Casiño have been getting death threats via SMS February 17.

 

According to the InterAksyon.com report, Colmenares and Casiño did not make the threats public right away so investigators could locate the person/persons sending the messages. However, Colmenares said things took "a serious turn" when investigators told them the text messages were being sent from a phone that was somewhere in the  "north wing of the House of Representatives." One of the threats reads thus: "Pamilya, collateral damage sa labanang ito (Family is collateral damage in this war)."

 

InterAksyon.com revealed that Colmenares as written the National Bureau of Investigation and Brigadier General Nicasio Radovan, sergeant-at-arms of the House of Representatives, to help resolve the matter. Colmenares added that "he and Casiño, as well as members of their staff, continued to receive the threats even during the recent weeklong break in Corona’s trial."
