The Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) Camarines Sur Chapter condemned the attack on a female judge in Libmanan town on Tuesday afternoon.

“We condemn in the strongest terms the wicked attempt and vicious assault to the life of Judge Jeaneth Gaminde San Joaquin of RTC (regional trial court) Branch 56 and her secretary,” IBP Camarines Sur said in a statement.

“IBP Camarines Sur in coordination with the authorities will leave no corners hidden nor quarters safe for the evil perpetrators,” the organization assured.

The Philippine National Police (PNP) said the 46-year-old magistrate and her secretary identified as Rocelle Martinez, 34, survived the ambush that happened at around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday in Barangay Puro Batia in Libmanan.

Police investigators said they were aboard a service vehicle on their way to the court when they were fired upon by unidentified motorcycle-riding gunmen.

The two victims were rushed to Libmanan District Hospital for treatment.
