According to abrenian.com sources, the case was finally filed three weeks ago after so much delays. The source has alleged that Former Abra PNP Chief Antonio Bartolome tried to rail road the case by not submitting the results of investigations on time.
Probably in an another attempt to finish off or in retaliation for the filing of case at the DOJ, two would be assassins riding in tandem attacked Bachiller’s house a week ago. No one was hurt in the incident but the gunmen left their motorcycle and guns in haste. One of the gunmen was reported been arrested.
Mila Valera, also a former Bangued Vice-Mayor, is a permanent fixture at the Munisipyo and very much active in the affairs of Bangued.
Mayor Dominic Valera, according to our sources, was not included in the case.
