0 262

A third Iloilo town mayor has claimed to be removed from the list of alleged narco-politicians in the country.

Carles Mayor Salagunting Betita said he learned of this from Western Visayas police regional director Jose Gentiles.

“According to Gentiles, my name is not in the narco-list,” he told The Daily Guardian (https://thedailyguardian.net/banner-news/carles-mayor-says-hes-narco-list/).

But he said the list Gentiles used may be a new one.

He said an official announcement might come from the Department of the Interior and Local Government or President Rodrigo Duterte.

Earlier, Mayors Mariano Malones (Maasin) and Alex Centena (Calinog) claimed that their names have been erased from the list.
