Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez just shrugged off the allegation that he is one of the protectors of the Espinosas in their illegal drug trade.
According to Gomez, the said accusation is nonsense and funny and there is no need to answer it.
Gomez added that he should not be dragged into the ‘circus’ of illegal drugs.
Atty. Alex Avisado, representing Gomez and his wife, Congresswoman Lucy Torres and Board member Matt Torres, his clients are known to be fighters against illegal drugs.
Avisado added that Richard and Lucy have a healthy, active lifestyle and it is impossible for the two of them to be involved in any illegal drugs activities.
