PRO 6 top cop: Capiz mayor’s involvement in illegal gambling ‘public knowledge’


A mayor of Capiz province is allegedly behind an illegal betting operation in several towns of Capiz and even Iloilo.

However, Chief Superintendent John Bulalacao, director of Police Regional Office (PRO)-6, refused to name the mayor.

In The Daily Guardian report, Bulalacao said the politiko’s alleged racket, particularly in the province’s fifth district, is “public knowledge.”

Arresting the mayor is easier said than done, the police official said.

“We don’t have strong evidence for now. Of course, they have other people do the legwork,” according to him. “We’re still conducting monitoring operations against him.”
