Catanduanes PAO chief faces illegal drug raps

A complaint for violation of Sec 7, Art. 1 of Republic Act 9165, which penalizes Visitors of a Drug Den, was filed against seven individuals, including Atty. Ruel Borja, Chief of the Catanduanes Provincial Attorney’s Office.

In an interview by BICOL STANDARD, P/Senior Inspector Connie de Leon said that he is being implicated in this case, based on their report that he was identified to have visited a known drug den.

In the complaint filed with the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office last August 19, Atty. Borja allegedly visited the residence of Pedro “Taruc” Urbano.

Urbano is publicly known to be involved in drug trade. He has even been once charged for violating the law against the use of illegal drugs.

The report mentioned that on or about the same date, police officers raided the house of Urbano by virtue of a Search Warrant that was issued by the court.

Aside from Urbano who was the main target of the police operation, Atty. Borja was also said to be physically present in the drug den. He was, however, allowed to get out of the place before the authorities could start with the actual search.

Apart from the said lawyer, the other companions who frequented the house of Urbano were also in the watchlist of police authorities for being involved the said illegal activity in the province of Catanduanes.

The report added that while Atty. Borja served as the head of the Public Attorney’s Office, he handled drug cases which were pending in court.

The investigators claim that it is impossible for Borja to be unaware that the residence of Urbano was being used as a drug den.

Meanwhile, at press time, Atty. Borja was not yet reached by BICOL STANDARD for his side on the matter.

It will be recalled that since the assignment of P/Senior Inspector de Leon here, the police authorities have been effective in fighting against drug syndicates which have been blatantly operating in this town for several years. — BICOLSTANDARD.COM
