BAGUIO CITY (Oct. 24) — At 12 noon of October 24, the remains of Jocelyn Dulnuan will now be laid to rest in her parent’s backyard at Namulditan, Hingyon, Ifugao as the clamor for justice continues.
About 350 community people, supporters and relatives who attended the eulogy had only one question; “Who murdered Jocelyn?” The family had no answers either but told their village mates “let us wait for the results of the investigation”.
What happened to Jocelyn will remain a nightmare to her family, relatives, village mates and compatriots abroad. The family will not find peace until the perpetrators are identified and brought to justice.
Jocelyn’s body arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport on October 18. Canadian authorities gave $5,000 and the Philippine government contributed another $5,000 only for her repatriation. As of this time, other commitments from the Ifugao LGUs and OWWA were not yet available, thus all the other expenses was shouldered by the family.
The Filipino community in Canada was able to raise $4,664 after the OWWA denied assistance for Jocelyn. According to the Jocelyn Dulnuan Support Committee in Canada, an independent initiative, moral and financial support continues to pour in for the family.
Jocelyn, 27, was found dead on October 1 by her female employer in their Mansion in Missiauga City, Ontario, Canada. Canadian police confirmed Jocelyn’s death involved “foul play” but did not make public any other detail surrounding the incident.
Migrante Metro Baguio Chapter and Migrante International traveled all the way to Hingyon to attend the wake for Jocelyn and stayed for two nights in Ifugao.
The Migrante shared the situation of the overseas Filipinos abroad to the community people. The local government was present during the sharing committed to make resolutions in the pursuit of justice for Jocelyn.
Migrante vows to seek justice for Jocelyn and to continue to be vigilant against any attempt to whitewash the case.# via NORDIS
