Abra Governor Jocelyn Bernos slammed the grenade attack against his brother-in-law Representative Joseph Bernos.
The Abra politiko said the attack was an “atrocity” against the good image of the province.
“We, Abrenians, have worked so hard to improve the image of our province and will not allow another atrocity to destroy this,” she said.
Bernos’ late husband Marc Israel was killed by hired guns in 2006 coincidentally also during La Paz was celebrating its fiesta.
She said the police and military are helping secure the province after the incident.
