3 mediamen ‘persona non grata’ for linking Legazpi mayor to drugs


Three media practitioners were declared persona non grata in Legazpi City for linking the mayor to the illegal drug trade.

A report on Bombo Radyo said the city council declared the three persona non grata after they accused Mayor Noel Rosal of being a drug protector.

Now deemed unwelcome in the city are Adrian Loterte, Plaridel Persia and Adam Claveria, anchors of a local radio station.

Rosal had offered to step down from his post if the allegations can be proven.

City Councilor Ismael Santillan filed a resolution backed by nine fellow councilors scoring the three for their “malicious accusations.”
