SC orders raps vs Baguio ‘narco judge’

/ 05:15 AM March 10, 2017

The Supreme Court has ordered the initiation of an administrative case against a Baguio City regional trial court judge whom President Duterte accused of being a protector of illegal drug syndicates last year.

The high court, in a four-page resolution dated Feb. 21 but only released on Thursday, adopted the recommendation of the fact-finding report made by retired justice Roberto Abad recommending that “an administrative case for corruption be instituted” against Judge Antonio Reyes of Baguio RTC Branch 1.

Abad, in his report, said the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency wanted to conduct an entrapment operation against the judge but this did not push after it was discovered that the alleged payoffs were made through his driver. —JEROME ANING
