Prosecutors in Negros
not set for mass leave
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Bacolod and Negros Occidental prosecutors have not decided yet whether to join their counterparts in Central Luzon planning to go on a mass leave, but said it could be a possibility.
Bacolod City Prosecutor Armando Abanado said the prosecutors of Western Visayas have issued a manifesto, condemning the “trial of publicity” against members of the Department of Justice Task Force on Anti-Illegal Drugs, Chief Prosecutor Jovencito and Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez
DOJ Undersecretary Ricardo Blancaflor, Zuño and two senior prosecutors are on indefinite leave upon orders of President Macapagal-Arroyo over the bribery scandal involving the so-called “Alabang Boys,” but the WV prosecutors said an investigation should have been conducted first and they should have been given due process.
