Reading Time: 1 minute

MANILA, Philippines — One of three suspects who ambushed a lawyer in Quezon City early Tuesday morning, February 13, died when the intended victim fought back and later chased his attackers, running them down as they tried to flee.

Lawyer Arjel Joseph Cabatbat was driving his SUV from Greenhills and had turned right from EDSA to East Aveue when the gunmen, riding two motorcycles, drove up next to him and opened fire.

However, Cabatbata managed to fire back and, when his attackers drove away, chased them and ran down their motorcycles.

The gunmen riding pillion, who suffered the most serious injuries, were rushed to the nearby East Avenue Medical Center where one of them was declared dead on arrival. Authorities are hunting down the third gunman, who managed to escape.


A Philippine National Police identification card in the name of Police Officer 1 Mark Boquela Areyas was recovered from the dead suspect but Quezon City Police District director Chief Superintendent Guillermo Eleazar said they still need to check its validity.

Investigators are looking at the possibility the attack on Cabatbat was related to his work because the lawyer has reportedly received several death threat.

Analysts have predicted a decline in Macau’s casino revenue for the fourth quarter of 2019. Financial giant Morgan Stanley said that casino gross gaming revenue (GGR) is likely to be down every month of Q4 in Macau.

Analysts Praven Choudhary, Thomas Allen and Gareth Leung said that October GGR would be 6% down year-on-year. November and December would both register a 9% decline year-on-year, ending Q4 on a bad note.

“We expect Q4 revenue growth for both mass and VIP to decelerate compared to the first nine months in Macau. Driven by high [2018] base, lower [tally of] overnight visitors and general economic slowdown,” the analysts said.

The Morgan Stanley analysts also said that they expect third-quarter property EBITDA to be down 1%. “Also weaker than seasonality of an 8% increase quarter-on-quarter,” they said.
