MANILA, Philippines — Former Mahinog, Camiguin Mayor Alex Jajalla was arrested on Wednesday in Camiguin province for violating laws against graft and corruption.

The warrant of arrest dated Sept. 9 was issued by Hon. Ma. Theresa Dolores Gomez Estoesta, chairperson of 7th Division in Sandiganbayan, Quezon City.

In October 2018, the Sandiganbayan ruled that Jajalla violated the Republic Act of 3019 or Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act after he granted his brother, Misael Rullon, a leave with pay for six months.
