Alvarez calls
accusations ‘propaganda’

BY GILBERT BAYORAN

Vice Governor Genaro Alvarez, who is challenging Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. in the 2013 Negros Occidental gubernatorial race, yesterday dismissed all the allegations and accusations against him and other members of his family as part of “election propaganda”.

The latest issue against Alvarez was that he is “sick”. “This is part of the election propaganda”, he said.

Asked for his comment on the imminent relief of NBI Bacolod chief Ferdinand Lavin and alleged plans to ambush a congressional candidate, Alvarez quoted newspaper reports saying that the relief is normal procedure as admitted by Lavin, and that a human rights group had dismissed the ambush plot as “without basis”.

“So, why do I have to answer for it, why force the issue?” Alvarez asked.

The NBI had linked some members of the Alvarez family to the ambush-slay of Kabankalan Regional Trial Court Judge Henry Arles, based on the testimonies of witnesses, who recanted their statements later.*GPB
