Albert Ignatius Ferro; and Police Attache to UAE SSupt. Enrique Magalona and Supt. Rodolfo Gonzales.
“During investigation in 2013, Nelson Antonio has confessed before prosecutors to the slay of his own father, businessman Antonio P. Antonio, who was shot six times on Sept. 11, 2013 at the family residence in Parañaque City,” Albayalde said in a press conference at Camp Crame.
