No mention at all about motive...Kind of wonder if he was hard nosed like the president..I would not want the job of going through all his cases he ruled on...


As long as he had served on the bench here in Surigao City he has had a long string of hardcore criminals stand before him for his final judgements. That list of suspects probably runs long and deep.

Once one holds that sort of position they might not expect to live a normal life. Especially in the phils.


A Filipino friend of mine has a bulletproof Tahoe he traverses the metro in. It is so heavy he uses a full tank from Makati to Tagaytay.


He never presided over any criminal trials! Just a guy with a few more quid than the average Filipino.


Even has been D list Filipino movie stars travel with security details.

Retired judge shot dead in Surigao City
Friday, February 03, 2017
By Pamela Jay F. Orias
A RETIRED judge was shot dead by unidentified gunmen Thursday, February 2, at Borja-Rizal Street, Washington village, Surigao City.
Police Officer 3 Henry Dalit, investigator of the Surigao City Police Office, identified the victim as Victor Amalia Canoy, a retired executive judge of Regional Trial Court, Branch 29. Dalit said Canoy was on his way to buy food at an eatery just across his office at about 11 a.m. Thursday, when motorcycle-riding gunmen shot Canoy in different parts of his body.
Canoy died on the spot. Dalit said the two gunmen, who covered their faces with handkerchiefs to conceal their identity, used a 9 mm. pistol with a silencer. Recovered from the crime scene were three empty shells. Dalit said initially, the motive of the killing could be work-related, given the nature of his job.
"Retired judge siya pero naa siya'y law office gihapon, ug amo gyud nga gituohan nga work-related ang motive sa pagpatay. Sa karon padayon pa gihapon ang investigation (He is a retired judge but he has a law office and we believe that the motive of the killing is work-related. For now, investigation is ongoing)," he said.
Canoy’s family also believes that the motive behind the brutal killing is work-related and they are still in shock as the victim did not mention any problems at work in the past few days. Dalit said that a police officer, who was patrolling near the area, was able to respond and shoot one of the suspects who fled towards Kaskag area, the city's public market. Witnesses said that bloodstains were visible in the Kaskag area, which could possibly be the suspect's.
Canoy, in his working years, has handled capital offenses like rape, homicide and murder cases, among others.

I am committed to the family, friends and associates of Harry Doyle as it allows them to get updates of this murder case, those cases surrounding this case and the progress of the extradition request documents. I posted long ago to them that I would continue updating the thread until all is finally concluded. So I am still obligated to them.

BUTUAN CITY, Philippines – A prosecutor was critically wounded in a gun attack in Surigao del Norte yesterday.


Surigao City prosecutor Manuel Tesiorna was initially taken to a private hospital in Surigao City for treatment  then airlifted to the Perpetual Succor Hospital in Cebu City.


A police report said Tesiorna was in front of his house in Barangay Canlanipa when motorcycle-riding men opened fire.


The gun attack came less than a week after Victor Canoy, a former Surigao del Norte regional trial court (RTC) judge, was shot dead also by unidentified motorcycle-riding men.

In September, Bayugan RTC Judge Hector Salise and his police aide were wounded in a gun attack on their way to work in this city.


Ingemar Macarine, board member of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines-Surigao del Norte chapter, condemned the attacks.

Surigao City prosecutor who got death threats, shot, wounded
Inquirer Mindanao / 04:14 PM February 06, 2017



SURIGAO CITY – A government prosecutor remains in critical condition after he was shot outside his residence in Barangay Canlanipa here Monday morning, according to the police.


City Prosecutor Manuel Tesiorna was washing his car just outside the gate of his house in Canlanipa Homes when a motorcycle-riding gunman shot him four times at around 7 a.m., said Police Officer 3 Johans Castillo, the investigating officer.


Tesiorna, 47, was preparing his car for work when he was shot in the chest, neck and back. The assailant and his companion, who were both wearing masks, fled on board a white Honda XRM motorcycle, police said.


Based on the empty shells recovered from the crime scene, police said the weapon used on Tesiorna was a 9mm pistol.


A passenger motorcycle brought Tesiorna to the Miranda Family Hospital, where doctors said he needed blood transfusion. He was later airlifted to Cebu City for treatment.


Tesiorna’s shooting came four days after retired Regional Trial Court judge Victor Canoy was shot to death by a lone gunman last Thursday while he was buying food at an eatery near his law office along Borja Street. Police still have no lead   to  Canoy’s shooting.


Senior Supt. Anthony Maghari, police chief for Surigao del Norte, said Tesiorna sought and was granted police protection last week after Canoy was killed.


A policeman assigned to the prosecutor was already en route to the victim’s residence when the shooting happened, Maghari said.


Police have been reviewing CCTV footages and interviewing witnesses to identify the assailants, Maghari said.


He said it was unlikely that one group was involved in the Canoy and Tesiorna’s shooting although he declined to elaborate, citing ongoing investigation.  SFM/rga
