SORSOGON CITY 4Dec2014 – – – Controversy surrounding the assumption of acting mayor Patricia ‘Tessie’ L. Guran in Bulan, Sorsogon, is not yet over as she was arrested this Thursday morning by NBI agents on alleged illegal practice of herbal medicine.
The arrest of Guran, a publicly known herbalist in Bulan for 32 years, is motivated by “dirty politics” as one of the NBI agents is close to the suspended Bulan mayor Marnellie B. Robles, whom Guran replaced in acting capacity, said a source close to Guran.
It is not yet confirmed if the arrest is legal or an alleged “set-up”.
Reports from Bulan said suspended mayor Robles is influential with the NBI.
Meanwhile, Guran was brought to NBI office in Legazpi City after the arrest.
As of presstime, no further details. [BicolToday.com]
