Anak ng tandang: Ex-Mayor Dela Flor charged with graft over illegal cockfights
Former Belison, Antique Mayor Darrell dela Flor has been charged with graft before the Sandiganbayan over alleged illegal cock fighting operations.
The Office of the Ombudsman filed the case against Dela Flor in connection with the supposed violation Presidential of Decree 449, also known as the Cockfighting Law.
Also named as accused were barangay chairmen Rey Escander and Larry Sebullen of barangays Sinaja and Poblacion, respectively.
The Ombudsman discovered that cockfights were held in the two barangays in February and March 2011 by individuals who were not licensed to operate.
“This is to certify that a preliminary investigation has been conducted in accordance with law… There is sufficient ground to engender a well-founded belief that the crime charged has been committed and that the accused are probably guilty thereof,“ read the resolution of the Ombudsman.
