CLARK FIELD – Concepcion Mayor Andres Lacson has brushed off his alleged involvement in illegal drugs trade.
This, after the Napolcom released the names of a governor and 18 mayors who were allegedly involved in the illegal drugs trade. The Napolcom has clipped the powers of the public officials over the police.
Another mayor from Tarlac province, Camiling Mayor Erlon Agustin was also included in the Napolcom list.
In his Facebook message, Mayor Lacson has denied involvement in illegal drugs and said he was denied “due process of law.”
“Nokarin ya pu ing hustung hustisya at due process of law. Mehusgahan kami pung tambing na eda man dininan chance a ma imbestiga o mikasuhan,” Lacson said. (Where is justice and sue process of law? We were accused of something without being given the chance to be investigated or charged.)
“Maragul a hamon ing kasalukuyang issue na pepalwal ng order ning Napolcom,” according to Lacson. (The Napolcom order was a big challenge.)
“Kapilan man pu king biye ku eku pu me involve keng nanu mang illegal a aktibidad lalung lalu na kng drugs. makabuklat ya pu kekayu ing istorya na ning biye ku manibat meging SK Chairman ku pu, Konsehal, Vice Mayor angga na pu ngening meging Mayor ku. Never tamu pung me involve keng illegal drugs.” (Never in my life that I was involved in illegal activities especially illegal drugs. The story of my life is open from the time I served as SK Chairman up to the time I was elected councilor, vice mayor until now that I am mayor (of Concepcion, Tarlac)).
A supporter identified as Ramon Lavin said: “I know Mayor Andy Lacson. Mabait,masipag,maaasahan at maayus ang papamalakad nia as simula SK,vice mayor at pagiging mayor niya. He always support the youth organization sa ating bayan. Nakita natin malaking pagbabago ng atin bayan.”
“The people of Concepcion are in support of you amidst this unfair treatment,” said Jarold G. Velasco in Facebook.
