RSAC was also ordered to determine whether or not the questioned players should be allowed to represent Bicol in the Palarong Pambansa.
Bonto said that the DepEd Regional Office is considering nullifying the results, if the allegations are proven to be true.
Those who will be proven to have participated in player-switching will be slapped with administrative and even criminal cases, he said.
The Bicol tourism advocate also lamented: how can we promote our region when we try to dupe each other?
Albay is ready and willing to face defeat. But certainly, Albayanos cannot accept being robbed of their win because of dishonesty, he expressed.
When sought for comment by BICOL STANDARD, Camarines Sur governor Miguel "Migz" Villafuerte said this issue properly belongs to the Department of Education (DepEd).
He promised, however, to conduct an investigation on the issue.
