(Eagle News)–The criminal complaint filed against former Philippine National Police Chief Oscar Albayalde and 13 policemen behind the 2013 irregular raid in Mexico, Pampanga is now deemed submitted for resolution.

This was after Albayalde and the other respondents swore by their rejoinder-affidavits at the Department of Justice.

Apart from Albayalde, also present was Police Major Rodney Baloyo IV, who led the police team in the raid, and 11 of his former men.

Only SP01 Ronald Santos did not make an appearance and waived his right to answer the allegations against him.

Albayalde and Baloyo and his group were charged by the PNP-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act, the anti-graft law, among others.

The charges stem from what the CIDG said was the recycling of illegal drugs of Baloyo and his group, and their alleged switching of suspects.

Albayalde was also charged because he was the provincial director of Pampanga at that time.

He was accused of intervening in the cases filed against his men, whom he supposedly even recommended for a promotion. Moira Encina
