Bangued, Abra — Provincial Election Supervisor Marychelle Belmes is walking on deadly ground.
That is according to Senior Superintendent Albertlito Garcia, officer-in-charge of Abra Police Provincial Office (PPO), who has assigned a police officer to serve as her bodyguard after she received threats to her life.
Belmes personally went to Bangued Municipal Police Station on October 13 to blotter a call she received from a concerned citizen saying that she is in the list of those in the province who will be killed next.
She also said that her mother told her that unidentified persons riding a motorcycle had been circling their house.
She told police that she does not have any grudge with anybody and does not have an idea who may want to harm her, except if it has something to do with an on-going investigation related to the May, 2013 election involving an incident that happened in Barangay Caganayan, Tineg town where it was found that a certain Fatima Yawayaw was able to register twice and voted twice.
