Biron mulls legal action against cops for slanderous claims

0 62

Former Iloilo Rep. Ferj Biron is mulling on filing suits against two police officers for dragging his name in Ombudsman cases filed against them.

He was surprised when Police Captain Charlie Sustento and Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Pinuela accused him of influencing the cases filed against them, according to Biron.

Pinuela was earlier suspended for six months for conduct prejudicial to the best interest of the service, grave abuse of authority and grave misconduct. Sustento, on one hand, was dismissed by the Ombudsman for grave misconduct and conduct unbecoming of a police officer. (https://bit.ly/3tMn5vO)

Biron denied any hand in the cases filed against the two officers.

“I was surprised to find my name being dragged into the cases of Police Captain Charlie Sustento and Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Pinuela as I am in no way involved in the resolution of any of these cases in any shape or form,” the ex-congressman said.

“If anyone can prove my involvement in the resolution of these cases, I will withdraw myself from public service,” he added.
