Priest slaps Tallado with DQ case

DAET, Camarines Norte—A local priest has struck incumbent governor and gubernatorial aspirant Edgardo "Egay" Tallado with a disqualification case over a sex scandal and an allegation of violation of term limits.

Fr. Sofronio Albania, a member of the Apostolic Catholic Church Of Divine Trinity Missionary International, alleged that Tallado disgraced the province due to said scandal, which involved him and an alleged mistress last year.

Albania further said that the governor would be violating the three-term limit set by Comelec if he wins in next year's polls, referring to a 2010 case that questioned whether Tallado was the duly-elected provincial chief executive.

It would be recalled that in November last year, Albania was among the members of a multi-sectoral group that launched a protest against the governor for the same allegations.

Tallado's camp, meanwhile, has yet to issue an official statement on the development as of the time of this writing.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
