Moises Padilla police chief,
others face charges at OMB

Senior Inspector Allan Reloj and six other police officers assigned at the Moises Padilla Police Station in Negros Occidental, are now facing libel charges before the Ombudsman.

The filing of charges against seven policemen of Moises Padilla stemmed from the attempt to link La Castellana Councilor Alberto “ White”Nicor to the illegal drug trade in Negros Occidental.

La Castellana Mayor Rhumyla Nicor-Mangilimutan, sister of Nicor, disclosed Friday that the complaint against Reloj, who is the Moises Padilla police chief, and six other police non-commissioned officers has already been forwarded by the Ombudsman Visayas to their national office.

A subpoena has been issued against them to answer the complaint,Mangilimutan said.

Nicor vehemently debunked allegations that he is involved in the illegal drug trade, although he admitted that he was once an occasional drug user. But he said he already stopped using drugs, after he was elected as councilor of La Castellana.

In two drug testing, Nicor stressed that he was found negative, and cleared of involvement in drugs by former and incumbent police officials of La Castellana.

Mangilimutan, a former policewoman investigator, said they are also contemplating administrative charges against Reloj and six other police officers.

Nicor dismissed the accusations against him as “baseless”.

Reloj could not be reached for comment, as of press time.*GPB
