Detained Mayor Baldo orders municipal hall officials, LGU employees to perform their jobs normally


Detained Daraga has ordered all the municipal hall officials and other employees to perform their functions.

Mayor Baldo was arrested by the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) after cops found firearms and ammunition in his house.

Baldo was tagged as the mastermind behind the killing of Ako Bicol Rep. Rodel Batocabe and his aide.

“On the basis of one of my Constitutional rights, presumption of innocence as suspect for violation of RA 10591, I am directing all Department Heads, Chief of Offices, and other personnel of LGU-Daraga to perform their respective office functions normally,” Baldo’s order read.

Rep. Batocabe and his aide SPO2 Orlando Diaz were killed last December 22 while attending a gift-giving event in Daraga, Albay.

Batocabe was serving his last term as a partylist representative.

He was attempting to unseat Baldo as Daraga mayor.
