LINGAYEN, Pangasinan, Oct. 18 — A provincial Board Member of Pangasinan has filed a case of libel against a newspaper columnist who wrote an item allegedly insinuating that members of the legislative body are receiving P40,000 each as monthly payola from operators of the illegal numbers game “jueteng”.
After weeks of contemplating on whether to pursue the case, Sixth District Provincial Board Member Alfonso Bince Jr. finally made up his mind to file the suit against Mortz Ortigoza, columnist of the weekly newspaper “Northern Watch”.
Invoking Article 353 of the Revised Penal Code in filing the case, Bince included as among the respondents Yolanda Sotelo, publisher; Brando Cortez, editor; and one John Doe, proprietor of the newspaper.
The case stemmed from the July 24, 2011 issue of the paper in which Ortigoza wrote in his column entitled “Perspective” that most provincial board members were receiving P40,000 monthly payola from jueteng, quoting another Provincial Board Member, Danilo Uy, of the fifth district of Pangasinan.
He insinuated in his column that some board members were adamant in welcoming the Loterya ng Bayan (LnB) as they were allegedly receiving P40,000 monthly payola from jueteng.
Uy, who Ortigoza said was the source of his claim, flatly denied the statement, stressing that he never said those words attributed to him by the columnist. (PNA)
