Albuera, Leyte Police Chief Inspector Jovie Espenido has turned over to Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald Dela Rosa documents detailing the alleged transactions of suspected Eastern Visayas druglord Kerwin Espinosa.
A report on GMA News TV’s QRT on Tuesday said among the documents inluce affidavits, cheques, notebooks, and a list of Espinosa’s previous transactions.
Espenido said the pieces of evidence contain the names of Espinosa’s supposed clients, protectors, and personalities whom he gave payola, the same report said.
Dela Rosa awarded Espenido earlier in recognition for his operations against the still at-large Espinosa as well as his campaign against illegal drugs.
Espinosa’s father, Albuera Mayor Rolando, sought police custody in August for his protection as he reveal the connections of his son.
Rolando pointed to several police officers, members of Congress, including a senator as among the alleged cohorts of Espinosa. — Joseph Tristan Roxas/RSJ, GMA News
