vs. makers of fake IDs


Charges for falsification of public documents is being mulled by the Commission on Elections Bacolod Field Office against those who provided false identification cards to registrants for the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections during the 10-day registration period.

Bacolod Election Officer Mavil Majarucon-Sia yesterday said that because of the Pangilinan law, the minors involved have no liability. It is the people behind this who should be made answerable, as well as the minors’ parents because they are still under parental authority.

Majarucon-Sia said more than 30 persons reportedly falsified documents of the COMELEC in order to be registered and this includes minors and those believed to be residents of Brgy. Singcang-Airport.moremoremore
