Drug-linked Councilor Cano Tan still on leave


Bacolod City Councilor Ricardo “Cano” Tan still has not reported for work. He has been on leave since December last year.

Tan took a leave of absence after he and his wife Anita were ambushed by unidentified armed men in Barangay Alangilan on December 14.

They were on their way home from the family-owned Campuestohan Highland Resort in Talisay City.

Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran, acting as the chairman of the Sangguniang Panlungsod, said Tan has availed himself of almost 30 days of vacation leave.

During the birthday celebration of Vallacar Transit Inc.’s Leo Rey Yanson in Bacolod last month, President Rodrigo Duterte tagged Tan in illegal drugs.
