Catanduanes Governor Joseph Cua gives not-so-subtle warning vs. drug accusers

0

Is Catanduanes Governor Joseph Cua resorting to intimidation now just to shut up the individuals linking him to the illegal drug trade?

The controversial politiko shared on Facebook an article from the Catanduanes Tribune with the headline, “Man sued for libelous Facebook comment.”

It just so happened that the man mentioned in the story was charged by…guess who? Governor Cua himself. The respondent, R-Jay Padilla Torreña, claimed in an FB comment that the politiko was a local “drug protector”.

Curiously, Torreña wrote the damning comment in August 2016, a good three months before the discovery of the mega shabu laboratory in Virac, Catanduanes. Cua has denied to death any involvement in the lab’s operations.

Let’s see how many of these commenters Cua will take to task.
