Iligan mayor to file case vs woman over FB narco-list

ILIGAN City–Mayor Celso Regencia yesterday threatened to sue a woman whom he accused of being behind a “narco list” spread on Facebook that ranked him as No. 42.

Regencia identified the woman as one Thelma Navarro Torralba even as he threatened to make her pay in court. He said he would file a case against the woman.

Torralba, for her part, denied Regencia’s accusation, saying she had nothing to do with the supposed “narco-list.”

She said Regencia should do a search “correctly.”

Torralba’s relatives called radio stations yesterday to state that they were behind her.

According to Regencia, the “narco-list” was edited so that his name could be inserted and make it appear that he was 42nd in the list.

This came days after President Duterte named local politicians in a “narco-list” that included local officials from Lanao del Sur, Misamis Occidentalm and from other provinces in the country.
