Legazpi City Mayor Rosal denies alleged drug links

LEGAZPI CITY, August 3, 2016 (Bicol Standard) – City Mayor Noel E. Rosal has vehemently denied any involvement in the illegal drug trade.

Legazpi City Mayor Noel Rosal has denied accusations that he is involved in the illegal drug trade.
This was confirmed by the PNP as well as the AFP intelligence units before the media in a press conference held here yesterday.

“Since 2014 until now we have not gathered nor received any adverse report against Mayor Noel Rosal regarding his alleged involvement in illegal drugs,” the intelligence report said.

Rosal, a longtime city chief executive, was allegedly the main target of a political black propaganda through the social media which pinned him as a coddler of illegal drugs.

The source of the information on his alleged knowledge and participation in the proliferation of the illegal drugs found its way to the social media though the Facebook account of a certain Pay Mael and Lily Bucan.

The report said that upon the initiative of Albay Province Board Member Rolly Rosal, brother of the city mayor, City Police Director Supt. Joselito Esico was invited to appear before the members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan to shed light onto the issue.

Esico together with the intelligence operatives of the Philippine Army clarified that the name of Mayor Noel Rosal is not mentioned as among those who have been identified to have any participation in the illegal drug activities.

The younger Rosal said that he purposely invited the City Police Director to shed light into this issue as all the members of their family are affected by the false report in the social media.

Meanwhile, in the fit of anger, Mayor Rosal even went to a coffee shop frequented by the person who allegedly maligned him.

When he arrived at said shop, however, the suspect was not there, the report added.

As these developed, the City Mayor told the media that he will file the necessary criminal complaint against those who are responsible under the Anti-Cybercrime law. (BICOLSTANDARD.COM)
