Manila, Philippines – Dinepensahan ni Department of Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra ngayon Miyerkules si Undersecretary Mark Perete sa umanoy pangingielam nito sa kaso ni Daraga, Mayor Carlwyn Baldo.
Pinagbibintangan ng kampo ni Baldo sa pagmamaniobra ng kaso si Parete, na kamag-anak naman ni Daraga Vice Mayor Victor Parete.
Agad namang pinabulaanan ito ni SOJ Guevarra at sinabing “Mayor Baldo’s insinuation of interference by DOJ Usec Mark Perete in the investigation of the mayor’s cases is totally unfounded.”
Diin pa niya na “Usec. Perete has no involvement whatsoever in the operations of the prosecution service, which is under the supervision of another undersecretary. His being a relative of Daraga vice mayor (Victor) Perete is purely (coincidental).”
Pinapurihan pa ni Guevarra si Parete dahil sa pagiging honest at respetado nitong opisyal.
“He has never talked about Mayor Baldo’s cases with anyone, much less with the investigating panel. Usec. Perete is one of the most honest and respected officials of the DOJ,” dagdag pa ni Guevarra.
Matatandaang si Baldo ay ang itunuturong mastermind sa pagpatay kay Ako Bicol party-list Representative Rodel Batocabe. Remate News Team
