I’m willing to shoot self
if proof found: Señoron

The challenge is now on for police investigators to probe and show that Senior Supt. William Señoron is  involved in the illegal drug trade, as claimed by self-proclaimed Berya drug group paymaster, Ricky Serenio, in his two affidavits.

          Señoron, who was relieved Monday as provincial police director of Negros Occidental by Chief Supt. Renato Gumban, Negros Island Region police director, said yesterday  that he is “willing to shoot himself in front of the regional police office”, if there is  serious evidence  to warrant the filing of charges against him, and his  guilt is strong.

          “They should probe  through  real investigation and validation that I have linkages, or that I received money from drug lords, such as  P1.2 million,  or even a single centavo, as drug protector, or from illegal gambling,” Señoron said. moremoremore
