Davao police still won’t name mayor in illegal drug mesh

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews / October 6) – Police here refused to reveal the
identity of a “mayor from Maguindanao” publicly tagged by Mayor
Rodrigo Duterte to an alleged delivery of prohibited drugs here using
an ambulance.

Davao City police superintendent Catalino Cuy said they were not yet
ready to identify the mayor, which Duterte mentioned in his regular
Sunday television program on October 1.

But Cuy confirmed Duterte’s revelation. He said they received
information about the mayor suspected in the transport of the illegal
drugs and said it happened two weeks ago. Cuy did not give details “to
avoid jeopardizing the ongoing police investigation”.

“Until we get strong evidence, we will not name him,” Cuy told
MindaNews after a press conference Thursday.

Duterte told reporters this week the town mayor along with two Davao
City Police office personnel delivered 3.5 kilos of methamphetamine
hydrochloride or shabu to Davao using an ambulance. Read story here.
