Department of Justice (DOJ), Secretary Menardo Guevarra said the witnesses in the killings of Sonya and Frank Anthony Gregorio in Paniqui, Tarlac may apply for protection.

Guevarra said the DOJ has not yet received any request for witness protection from the Philippine National Police.

“But if the witnesses needed protection, they may apply directly with the DOJ WPP and we shall evaluate their application for provisional coverage immediately,” he said.

The Gregorios were killed by Police Master Sergeant Jonel Nuezca during a heated confrontation last Sunday. Nuezca, who is in police custody, faces charges for two counts of murder.

Nuezca has a history of criminal and administrative cases, including two for homicide in 2019. Both were dismissed for lack of evidence. Nuezca was also demoted one rank over a 2014 extortion case.
