AN OFFICER of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) is in hot water for alleged drug peddling in Sara, Iloilo.

Anti-illegal drugs operatives of the Iloilo Provincial Police Office (IPPO) and Sara PNP mounted a buy-bust operation against Jail Officer 1 Kenneth Puerto and his wife Mary Tina at their house in Poblacion Ilawod, Sara Tuesday afternoon.

But the couple was not in their house during the operation and it was their house help, Cherry Anne Lasconia who handed a sachet of suspected shabu to the poseur-buyer.

S/Insp. Willy Diel, Sara police chief, said the buy-bust happened inside the sari-sari store owned by the Puerto couple.

Diel said they confirmed the alleged sale of illegal drugs through several test buys they conducted the past two weeks.

The BJMP regional office has ordered Puerto to show up and explain the operation on their house.

Jail Insp. Jobert Tulayan, BJMP operations chief, said they will also investigate Puerto’s links to the entry of illegal drugs at the BJMP district jail in Jaro, Iloilo City where he was assigned.

THE LETTER of Andon Llantada Valencia published last Thursday is among those that I have written about – big lies. This is the foundation of the Duterte campaign and sad to say the so-called decent and educated people fall into the trap that has all the ingredients of a huge scam. Read more...

Failure of the rule of law

May 02, 2016 01:14 AM

By: F. Allan L. Angelo

“IF CITIZENS cannot trust that laws will be enforced in an evenhanded and honest fashion, they cannot be said to live under the rule of law. Instead, they live under the rule of men corrupted by the law.”

These words are from American legal commentator Dale Carpenter, author of “Flagrant Conduct: The Story of Lawrence v. Texas. Read more...
