The Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources will offer this Friday a mass in memory of Orlando Jorge Merawho was the head of that entity before being assassinated last Monday.
According to a press release, the Eucharistic celebration will be held in the central lobby of the institution with the presence of all employees.
The Mass will be presided over by Monsignor Hector Rafael Rodriguezpresident of the National Commission for Environmental Ecological Pastoral Care and vice president of the Dominican Episcopate Conference, accompanied by Father Juan Pablo Merizalde, of the Heralds of the Gospel and other priests.
After the Eucharist, a tree will be planted in the garden of the ministry in memory of Jorge Mera.
“These almost two years promoted reforestation days, where more than 10 million trees were planted,” says the press release of Environment.
On the other hand, the government organization reported that, to accompany all the collaborators, an Intervention team in Crisis of the Iberoamerican University (Unibe), will be giving group therapy next Tuesday to help all employees.
Likewise, a team of psychologists will be providing individual attention to those people in the institution who require it.
Jorge Mera was killed this Monday with six shots by his childhood friend, Michael of the Crosswhen he entered his office at the headquarters of Environmentdemanding that their requests be met, according to the file of the Public Ministry.
Supposedly, the defendant was frustrated because he “campaigned” for the Modern Revolutionary Party (PRM) and “they did not solve him.”
After committing the crime, says the Public Ministry, the accused left the building through some stairs and mixed with the crowd of employees who ran terrified to leave the premises.
Once on the street, he took a motor vehicle that took him to the church of Jesus Christ, High and Eternal Priest, in the Renacimiento urbanization, in the National District, where he gave the murder weapon to a priest and turned himself in to the authorities.
