MANILA - Atty. Salvador Panelo has formally withdrawn as lawyer for Tomas and Remy Pastor, parents of slain international car racer Enzo Pastor.

Panelo informed the Department of Justice (DOJ), through Assistant State Prosecutor Susan Villanueva, who handles the cases in connection with Enzo's slay, that he is no longer representing the family.

Panelo said he decided to withdraw because he is close to both Enzo's family, and to his widow, Daliah, who has been tagged as one of the masterminds in her husband's killing, since he has represented them in previous cases.
