DOJ dismisses Peña gun,
explosives raps

The Department of Justice has dismissed charges for illegal possession of firearms, ammunition and explosives, and for harboring a criminal, against former Pulupandan mayor Magdaleno Peña and his co-accused.

This was in connection with a raid on his ancestral house in Barangay Ubay, Pulupandan, Negros Occidental, on May 2, shortly before the 2013 midterm elections.

It has also ordered that an investigation be conducted on all police officers involved in the implementation of the search warrant for the allegation of planting of explosives in the searched premises, and for unnecessary expense incurred by the Philippine government in the conduct of the raid.moremoremore
