VG Alfaro condemns jueteng operations in Occidental Mindoro
Occidental Mindoro Vice Governor Peter Alfaro has condemned the reported jueteng operations in the province.
Alfaro wrote a letter to PNP Provincial Director Joseph E. Bayan to urge the latter to act on the said jueteng operations.
“Ipinabatid ni Vice-Governor Peter De Jesus Alfaro, Chairman ng PNP Advisory Council, ang kanyang tahasang pagkondina sa pagbabalik ng operasyon ng Jueteng sa Lalawigan ng Occidental Mindoro,” the provincial government said.
Alfaro also asked the Sangguniang Panlalawigan to pass a resolution condemning the return of jueteng in the province.
Meanwhile, PD Bayan assured Alfaro that they are doing everything to suppress the jueteng operations in the province.
“Please tell VG hindi kami nagpapabaya. Actually, dalawa (2) ang nahuli ng kapulisan dito sa SJ,” Bayan was quoted as saying.
According to the province, two people have been caught in connection with jueteng operations in the province.
“Dahil may dalawang nahuli, ito ay nagpapatunay na may operasyon ng Jueteng sa Lalawigan ng Occidental Mindoro. Ngunit sa kabila nito ay tinitiyak ni PD Bayan na hindi nila hahayaang mamayagpag ang Jueteng sa Lalawigan,” said the province.
