Statement of the UP Diliman College of Social Work and Community Development on the Death of Carmel A. Eubra

Ms. Carmel A. Eubra, a municipal social welfare and development officer (MSWDO) of Viga, Catanduanes was killed by riding in tandem in Virac, Catanduanes last May 24, 2022. She was shot twice while driving her car inside a subdivision.

It is obvious that her killers had subjected our colleague to a surveillance and decided that the location where Ms. Eubra died was the perfect killing spot. Apparently, the location also afforded the killers the best route for their getaway.

Contracting hired killers for this dastardly act is a clear sign that somebody or a group of individuals was hell bent to eliminate Ms. Eubra.

This is again a classic case of senseless killing.  It is very ironic that a social work practitioner that has overcome the challenges of being a frontliner in a rural setting just to put premium on the sacredness of life, died violently.  Her passion to serve other people especially those in need was cut short.  She was only 43 years old. Her dreams were crushed with her lifeless body.

Her murder was another notch of a long thread of professionals who also met the same fate, another testament that rendering service to the people invites violent death  and how impunity has permeated the society.
