Richard Gomez to Sue Albuera Police Chief Over Drug Claims


The newly elected Mayor of Ormoc City, a former actor who once campaign against illegal drugs nationwide speak up and promised to file a case against the Police Chief of Albuera town, for linking him to the illegal drugs operation of the Espinosa group.


According to Richard Gomez on his official Facebook Page, he believed that Mayor Espinosa was prevailed upon by Chief Inspector Jovie Espenido to link him to the illegal drug trade of Kerwin Espinosa.

The organizer of MAD (Mamamayan Ayaw sa Droga) during the early 90's claimed that the Albuera Police Chief, was beholden to his political opponents and had attempted several times to besmirch his name.

Richard Gomez was quoted as saying "It is unfortunate that he was assigned to Albuera, Leyte, giving him control over the late Mayor Espinosa, whom I am sure he prevailed upon to impute my character and those of other equally innocent officials," he wrote.


In a text message sent to Inquirer, Richard Gomez noted that the CIDG-Eastern Visayas leader Police Chief Inspector Leo Laraga was merely quoting Espenido during the Senate hearing on the controversial operation that leads to the death of Mayor Espinosa. 

The 50-year-old Richard Gomez who is now in London with his wife, Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez of Leyte's 4th District said that while controversy was nothing new to him as an actor for more than 30 years, it was the first time that his name was dragged in illegal drugs. 

Richard Gomez posted on Facebook that “I initially did not want to dignify this with an answer but given that this is politically motivated and very malicious, I am speaking up,” Gomez said.
