The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) condemned in the strongest possible terms the killing of a BIR revenue officer along West Avenue, Quezon City on Friday morning.
Alberto Enriquez, 49, was the chief of the Assessment Section of Revenue District Office (RDO) No. 28–
Novaliches, Quezon City when he shot dead after getting out of his car by unidentified gunman after he parked in front of an apartelle near the district office.
The motive for the killing is still unknown as the Philippine National Police is investigating the incident.
The tax agency condoled with the family of the slain revenue officer and said it will work closely with law enforcement officers for the resolution of the case.
Revenue officials and employees said they will continue performing their work even if the incident was meant to sow fear among them. They vowed to close ranks and be more vigilant in ensuring their safety.
The Revenuers Gun Club, Inc. and the BIR Employees Association also denounced the broad daylight killing and lambasted the perpetrators of the dastardly crime. They vowed support for the BIR’s action on the resolution of the case.
