Charges against a councilor of La Castellana and a Bacolod resident tagged in an alleged police recruitment scam involving millions of pesos are expected to be filed this week.
The complainants earlier reported to the police that La Castellana Councilor Donato Dumaguit, alias Nat-Nat, and a certain Mary Jun Tagua Delos Santos allegedly offered to facilitate their applications to the Philippine National Police for a fee, Maj. Nelson Amsiwen Jr., La Castellana police officer-in-charge, said on Friday, September 15.
The provincial government is assisting the complainants in executing their affidavits before the La Carlota Prosecutor’s Office, Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson said on Monday, September 18.
La Castellana Mayor Rhummyla Mangilimutan said she was told about 16 complaint affidavits had been executed as of Monday and that charges are expected to be filed this week.
Three complaints have also been filed at the National Bureau of Investigation in Bacolod for the alleged recruitment of unqualified PNP applicants for fees ranging from P200,000 to P300,000 each, NBI Bacolod chief Renoir Baldovino said Monday.
The two named by the complaints allegedly recruited 45 applicants, the bulk of whom are from La Castellana, while six are from Moises Padilla and two from Bacolod City.*
