Roberto Ramos, Katapat
20 November 2005

Roberto Ramos of Katapat, a newspaper based in Laguna, southeast of Manila, was shot dead on 20 November 2005

Ramos was at the side of a road near his newspaper in Cabuyao (about 100 km southeast of Manila) yesterday when two men on a motorcycle stopped next to him and one of them shot him twice in the head with a .38 pistol, killing him instantly. Manila-based Radio DZRH said he had exposed a number of illegal rackets, mostly involving gambling and prostitution.

On 1 December, police arrested two suspects who allegedly confessed to killing Ramos because he had written about their trafficking in pirated DVDs.
