Mayor Malabor wants Isabela police chief axed


Isabela Mayor Joselito Malabor said he wants the municipality’s police chief replaced.

The Negros Occidental politiko said he wants a police chief who has his “trust and confidence.”

Malabor said current police chief Ruben Pajarito is an Isabela native and has many relatives there.

He said that is probably the reason why the number of arrested illegal drug suspects in Isabela is “very low.”

Malabor also called for an intensified campaign against crime and illegal drugs in the municipality.
