relieved for ‘misconduct'
BY GILBERT BAYORAN

Chief Inspector Barry Villanobos, the police chief of Siaton town in Negros Oriental, was relieved and is now in hot water, allegedly for misconduct.

Villanobos forced a man to kneel, and placed his ear to an open pipe muffler of a motorcycle, while the engine was being revved up.

Senior Supt. Henry Biñas, acting provincial police director of Negros Oriental, yesterday said that Villanobos, whom he had relieved last week, admitted to doing it to the victim, whose identity was withheld. .
