George Benaojan, DYDD Bantay Radio
1 December 2005

Journalist George Benaojan, who presented a weekly programme on DYDD Bantay Radio, a local station, was shot dead by an unidentified gunman on 1 December 2005 in Talisay City, on the southern island of Cebu.

His colleagues said he had recently received death threats in SMS messages. In August 2004, he narrowly escaped a murder attempt by persons who were never identified.

Police investigating the murder said they thought it was motivated by allegations he had made in his radio programme and in columns he wrote for local newspaper Bantay Balita in which he had accused local figures including customs officials of being involved in corruption.
