Jed critic calls for rule of law

ILOILO CITY Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog found an unlikely ally in a feisty critic who called for due process and rule of law in addressing the illegal drug problem in the city.

Councilor Plaridel Nava’s privilege speech also prompted his colleague to speak out on the penchant of Pres. Rodrigo Duterte to tag Mabilog to the drug trade and in labelling Iloilo as the hub of the illegal drug problem in the country.

During the Sangguniang Panlungsod regular session on Sept 12, 2017, the feisty and outspoken Nava urged Duterte to uphold the rule of law in prosecuting Mabilog if the latter is indeed a “drug protector.”
