raps vs. ex-cop
BY GILBERT BAYORAN
The Bacolod City Prosecutor’s Office has dismissed an inquest case for robbery and grave threats against former Police Officer 3 Rocky Jacinto and ex-barangay kagawad Edwin Baltazar, filed by Chief Inspector Levy Pangue, for lack of probable cause.
Prosecutor II Maria Mercedes Odango-Saril, in a 2-page inquest resolution, however, said she finds probable cause for the crime of grave threats against Romeo Venida, for threatening complainant Pangue through a text message “ Andam ka kay pamatyon ko pamilya mo (Beware because I will kill your family)”.
Jacinto, in his letter to the Visayan DAILY STAR, vehemently debunked the insinuations of Pangue that he is the mastermind of the extortion activities of Venida and Baltazar who had victimized several businessmen, as well as the Mosser Foundation, by demanding money as much as P400,000.
