CHR probes complaints of
The Commission on Human Rights is investigating complaints of more than 200 residents that their water connections were cut off for not voting for a certain candidate in the recent barangay elections.

He said the water lines of the complainants and several others were disconnected, allegedly on orders of former kagawad Nestor Narciso because they did not vote for him in the October 28 barangay election.
Narciso was named in the joint affidavit signed by Pastor Arnold Palumar of the Independent-Assemblies Fellowship church and residents Ellen Abuyabor, Lydia Quiliope, Nelia Blaza, Eulalia Amboyon, Gregorio Cabugnason, Amalia Ganaganag, Mercedita Cabildo, Ruby Yanoc, Magdalena Narciso, Asuncion Blaza, Lyndon Narciso, Tranquiling Balauro Jr,. Conchita Ybanez, and Teopisto Cadalin.
