Cops fail to arrest Bangued mayor


BAGUIO CITY, Philippines  – Bangued town mayor Ryann Luna has turned fugitive from justice after policemen failed to arrest him in his house or at the town hall Monday night.

Luna, who is now wanted by the law in connection with the murder of then Tineg mayoral bet Brenda Crisologo during the 2007 poll canvassing in Bangued, Abra’s capital town, has not been found by authorities,
Cordillera police director Chief Supt. Benjamin Magalong said.

Policemen tried to serve the arrest warrant of Mayor Luna, who is also running for re-election, at his residence in barangay Dangdangla and at the municipal hall, now being swarmed with his supporters, but failed to locate the town official.

Magalong said coordination is being made with the Justice department and the Immigration bureau for the issuance of a Hold Departure Order.

On Monday morning, Luna was said to have even led his townfolks for the  flag ceremony in front of the town hall and was visibly agitated because of impending  issuance of arrest warrant, which he said  was “ill-timed, politically-motivated and a handiwork of his political opponent.”

Luna’s re-election bid is being contested by businessman Dominic Valera, father of Abra Rep. Ma Jocelyn Bernos of the Liberal Party.


The events, some quarters claim, might be the signal of outbreak of violence in the province ahead of the May 13 polls as Luna’s supporters have barricaded the Bangued town hall, just a stone’s throw away from the provincial capitol.

Chief Supt. Magalong, however, said the events “(have) no significant impact at the moment,” adding that everyone “has the right to hold peaceful and orderly assemblies”.

Luna is from one of the big political clans in the province. His mother , former Rep. Cecille,  is running for governor; his brother,  Jentrix, is running for re-election in Lagayan town; his brother,  Hans, is  running against Rep. Bernos; and another brother Cromwell, is  running against the slain Crisologo’s husband — Edwin in Tineg.

Earlier, Magalong named both Abra and Kalinga as possible sources of flashpoints in the upcoming polls because of the long history of election-related violence in these areas. – Artemio A. Dumlao

    • Political harassment , vindictive businessman, and most if all ambitious cousin to get the helm of the municipality of Bangued that is how I perceive the present politics here in abra. Why do I care? Yes because without people like us who certainly air our views then politicians will just show their real color . Abra can’t be great without political killings, abra’s constituents are divided even relatives that use to be one before will soon have to alienate amongst themselves because if politics. I still believe that Ryan will be given due process with regards to this case and I would like to attest to the fact that this is purely politically motivated by Ryan’s opponent. Bangued mayor will still be Ryan and we hope that he still will win with this political drama if abra.

      Imbag pay a ta adda resolution ti DOJ nga kasta after 6 long years. At least man lang ket mangrugin nga maamoan ti kaagpaysuanan no kasali ba talaga ni Mayor Ryan iti panangpapatay kani Mrs. Crisologo.

      Uray ngamin no kaano nga rumuar deta nga resolution ti DOJ wenno korte ket makuna latta a politically motivated, ill-timed, harassment, etc.

      Ngem ti panunuten tay koma ket adda ti biktima ti krimen idi 2007 nga dapat nga maikkan ti hustisya (whether or not Mayor Ryan is guilty).

    Posted by SPUTNIK | April 30, 2013, 5:27 pm
    • Let justice be served! It is wrong to condemn an innocent man. The mayor has rights as an accused.

      But despite the timing, as an accused, he has to humble himself before the law to defend himself. He has to answer the allegations against him in a convincing manner. As captain syd says “the truth will set you free.”

      Basta ti makonak, election man wenno saan, nu nakasoan ket rumbeng na laeng nga sanguen. Haan nga bastabasta ti agakusar, adda testimonya kada evidensiya nga basis ti piskalya nga pangsiripan ti probable cause. No politically motivated, ket nyan ton? Strategy amin dayta kasla kanya met lng idi kanyada, binnales lang. Ti symphatiak ket adda ken mayor, ngem bumutosak nu nya man dikta ti konsensiak

There in the Philippines , you still love those corrupt officials even do they cheat you without regards of the law. Tawag Dian ignorance and lacking a sense of responsibility.

    • > If you really are a good, ready to serve and to sacrifice politician , you should refrain acts that constitute to betrayal of public trust. You are wise enough to know what is right from what is wicked actions. Do not dignify altruistic actions being committed by someone else. Here in the USA,, there’s also corruption but not as rampant as like there in Abra. However , the people and the govt keeps up with them and at the end of the day , politicians are tried at the court and sent into jail. Most often than not , theres no acquital . a lot of them ask for flee bargaining agreement . Whenever I am there in Abra . If there’s a chance to voice out my concerns to the politicians, I always do so but in a friendly and acceptable manner.
