BACOLOD City – A CARP beneficiary and her son are accusing a barangay chairman in Hinoba-an town for grave abuse of authority for allegedly threatening them to vacate the lot they have been tilling and occupying since 1997.
Herminia Colasisang and her son Bermie together with their lawyer, Atty. Nilo Sorbito in a press conference yesterday said they have also filed a case for violation of the anti-graft and corrupt practices law against Edtih Tacdoro, barangay captain of Talagacay.
In her affidavit, Herminia claimed that last May 7, 2012 at around 5pm, Tacdoro harassed and told them to vacate their house saying that “should we refuse, she will be the one to order our eviction and the dismantling of our house and to uproot our plants.”
